Down on Cyprus Avenue ...

So check this out ... East Side Arts—an organization that develops and delivers a wide variety of arts-related activities in East Belfast—just announced that its in discussion with Van Morrison's management to hold a concert on Cyprus Avenue. Imagine that ... Morrison rhapsodizing about the street he rambled up and down as an adolescent—and he's doing the rhapsodizing on that very street. Pretty nifty.

From the East Side Arts website: "Nothing has been confirmed. We are also in discussions with all relevant and appropriate parties to ensure the event can be staged safely, in a co-operative manner and, above all, with the least disruption possible to everyone, especially residents in the immediate area."

The concert would be part of the EastSide Arts Festival, which is scheduled to take place in late August. Will keep you all posted ...
