Fans of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and six-time Grammy Award winner Van Morrison will have to wait a little longer to see him perform at Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall. The venue announced that Morrison has rescheduled his Feb. 14-15 performances for April 20-21. Tickets will be honored for the new dates.
A statement from Morrison’s camp about the rescheduling said the following:
“With the recent surge in COVID cases as a result of the Omicron variant, we have made the decision to reschedule our upcoming dates in February to later in the year, out of an abundance of caution for our fans….. All tickets will be valid for the rescheduled dates, and we look forward to seeing you soon. We greatly appreciate your continued support, apologize for any inconvenience this causes and most importantly, look forward to seeing you on tour!”
A very limited number of tickets priced at $272.75, $198.75, $142.75 and $98.75 are still available by calling the central ticket office at 727-791-7400 or visiting rutheckerdhall.com. The ticket office is open noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and will open one hour before showtime.
