Watch Van Morrison Performing @ Agape International Spiritual Center – August 30, 2017

Before his appearance on stage with Agape’s band, he was filmed sitting among the congregation at their huge centre in Culver City for the service, which lasted more than two hours.
“He’s a member of Agape,” said Dr Beckwith, who set up the centre in 1986 as “a movement that would take a stand for love, for peace, for being a beneficial presence on the planet”.

The name Agape comes from the Greek for unconditional love.

Van Morrison was enjoying a commercial renaissance with both this tour and the album he was promoting at the time. Always a magnetic live performer, Morrison delivered a stunning set in New York’s intimate Bottom Line club – the venue that launched the careers of both Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel, among countless others. Opening with an introduction by J. Geils Band’s Peter Wolf and a jazzed up version of “Moondance,” the show provided a healthy mix of material from his then-new Wavelength LP and all the best-loved Morrison classics.

This 1978 live performance is a perfect representation of Morrison in another era of change and is worthy of official release and constant inspection.
