Van Morrison fans are in for a treat this summer as the legendary Irish musician has announced three outdoor gigs in Dublin, Belfast and Cork.

You can expect to hear songs from Van the Man's extensive back catalogue, as well as his most recent albums 'Moving on Skiffle' and 'Accentuate the Positive' which have been released in recent years.

No word, however, on whether he'll be playing 'Why Are You On Facebook?' alongside the glorious 'Astral Weeks'.

You can catch the Belfast native, who celebrates his 80th birthday next year, at Cork's Live at the Marquee on May 31st, Belfast's Botanic Gardens on May 26th and Dublin's Iveagh Gardens on July 4th.

Tickets are on sale next Thursday, February 29th at 9am.
