BBC Music collaboration sees Eden Sessions concerts on BBC Four
Three epic performances from this summer’s Eden Sessions are due to be shown under the “Live at Eden” banner on BBC Four, starting this Friday (November 17) with Van Morrison.
The Belfast-born singer and his band gave an unforgettable performance against the backdrop of the world-famous Biomes on July 1 this year.
The hour-long programme Van Morrison: Live at Eden features some of his all-time classic songs such as Have I Told You Lately, Here Comes The Night, Moondance and Brown Eyed Girl.
The shows are a collaboration with BBC Music for BBC Four and the series continues with broadcasts of sets from Madness (Friday November 24) and Bastille (Friday December 1).
Madness played at the Eden Project on June 16 this year and their TV set includes classic hits such as House of Fun, Baggy Trousers and a heart-warming rendition of It Must be Love.
Bastille took to the stage in front of the famous Biomes the previous evening and opened the 2017 Eden Sessions. Their set includes Good Grief, Of the Night and a rousing encore of their biggest hit Pompeii.
Rita Broe, Eden’s marketing director, said: “It’s brilliant to give fans a chance to re-live these gigs and bring the Eden Sessions to a wider audience thanks to BBC Music. Van Morrison, Madness and Bastille were three massive highlights of an incredibly strong year for our summer shows.”
The Eden Sessions have already announced the first show for 2018 – Gary Barlow will play on June 6. Tickets for that show are sold out but more acts will be announced soon.
The Eden Sessions has its own free-to-view online TV channel (www.youtube.com/edensessionstv) featuring regularly-updated videos of some of the gigs' finest shows.
Van Morrison: Live at Eden will be shown on BBC Four at midnight on Friday November 17, while Madness: Live at Eden will be on at midnight on Friday November 24. Bastille: Live at Eden will be shown at midnight on Friday December 1.
