 Van Morrison Tickets Selling Well

Music legend Van Morrison has revealed he is looking forward to his concert at the Villa Marina Gardens, Douglas, on June 3, as tickets continue to sell well.

The Irish singer, who rarely gives interviews to the media, revealed his thoughts on the Joey Dunlop tribute gig through a statement issued from his office. It read: 'There has always been a special relationship between the people of Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man. Mr Morrison is really looking forward to returning there for his concert in June.'

Tickets are selling fast for the concert with more than 1,200 being sold already. However, tickets are selling slower for the Fun Lovin' Criminals show at the gardens on Saturday, June 2. As of Friday morning it is believed only around 300 tickets had been sold for the 10,000 capacity venue, although tickets only went on sale last week.

Meanwhile, plans for other entertainment over the TT fortnight are continuing to be arranged. Monday, June 4, will officially be Port Erin Day, with a number of activities centred in the town. The Department of Tourism and Leisure's special events department has been working closely with Port Erin Commissioners and Port Erin Traders' Association to host a number of attractions, including street entertainers, a vintage motorcycle display, live music and a lifeboat display as well as windsurfing and canoe hire.

The DTL is aiming to base all the major attractions in town centres in a bid to reduce the risk of foot-and-mouth disease spreading to the Island. Usual festival activities such as Bushy's tent on Douglas Promenade, stunt bikes, mini motos, karts, a fun fair and Red Arrows and firework displays will also go ahead as planned.

Tickets for the Van Morrison show are £22.50 while FLC tickets are £17.50, and are available from Shoprite, Villa Marina box office and Dukevideo and its ticket line 01624 640004.
