Rarely has a ‘Van the Man’ gig been as eagerly anticipated as the one set in the place he named one of his best-loved songs after, Cyprus Avenue.

As we look forward to Van Morrison's birthday gig in Belfast, Ivan Little celebrates the enduring global appeal of a Northern Ireland music legend.

It's the commemoration that every fan will want to keep.
