Re: Your Leonard Cohen Autographs

This may bore you to tears but in 1979 (ish) came to see LC in Manchester and chased him back to his hotel to meet him by chance and breathlessly in the lobby (Portland Thistle I think) he gave me a backstage pass which he signed that got me access then to Preston and Edinburgh shows and a free beer...

Re: Please post setlists of the North America tour here!!!

Re: Which "lesser known" songs do you wish Leonard would play?

Thanks UrPal, think I understood most of that. I just got a little bored with the six 6 times I heard the same songs and rather hoped that the old dog might learn a new trick or recapture some that he once had that managed to please. Your list captured some of my favourites and if he choses to harve...

Re: Summer tour: speculations (several threads merged)

Re: Find and sell New York tickets here

This is so like Manchester England last spring, opening dates of the tour small venue, huge demand and at the eleventh hour tickets miraculously were released to be casually picked up by half interested fans who hadn't because of love of leonard bought the garbage initially offered by ticketmaster i...

Re: A Very Important Announcement # 2 Coming

Sorry, have I missed something, is the big announcement nailed on as US tour dates? If that is the case then Friday is less importnat to me than to others but if that is just naked aspiration from those of you in America then there is a different accent and action needed for me.

Re: Leonard Cohen Live in London

Anyone managed to tot up how many Best of, Must have and Live versions of are now sloshing about in the Zavvi's of this world. I hope that the big announcement is of something new. I wonder if the lack of footage from Glasto was to protect demand for this?.....just a thought!

Ah well, Ireland's loss is (Northern) England's gain. Better make sure that we give him a good send off.

Why did Manchester feel like it was chosen ....

... as the start and end last two tours? It is both flattering and convenient for those of us in The North West of England but a tad odd in global terms. Just wondered if there is a logic to it.

Re: What I don't like about these shows

Bela believe that you be at your "Best" night and don't believe anyone who tells you anything different. My...
