Morrison Films L.a. Shows For Farrah

VAN MORRISON filmed his recent shows at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles - so ailing superfan FARRAH FAWCETT could watch them from her sickbed.
The actress is battling anal cancer and was too sick to make it to the concerts last week (07-09May09) - so she had them brought to her Malibu, California home.
The Irish singer/songwriter's representatives have confirmed the filmed concerts were express delivered to the Charlie's Angels star.
One tells Eonline.com, "Van is also a huge fan of Ryan and Farrah's work... Farrah in The Apostle and Ryan in Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon and, of course, Love Story."
Morrison gave permission for filmmakers to use his 1987 ballad Queen of the Slipstream in Farrah's Story, Fawcett's documentary about her cancer battle, which will air on Friday night (15May09) in America.
