Van Morrison performs Comfortably Numb live again Print E-mail

Monday night (July 7th), legendary songwriter and performer Van Morrison gave his audience in Toronto's Massey Hall something a little out of the ordinary... a cover version of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb.

Van Morrison originally performed the track in Berlin - at short notice - back in 1990 when Roger Waters staged his mammoth production of The Wall for the Memorial Fund for Disaster Relief, and subsequently his version appeared on the soundtrack of recent movie The Departed. His performance on Monday reportedly resulted in "some hair-raising, spine-tingling moments. While looking down at a lyrics sheet, he managed to make the song into his own with his unique, powerful range and passion".

"I hope you liked that," he said. "I'm not numb and I'm not comfortable."
