Re: CONCERT REPORT: Istanbul, September 19, 2012

Fedora, I wasn't so close to the stage, so I didn't get the moment of your hat-giving; but I thought I saw at the end a hat flying from the stage towards the audience. Was that a gift back, I wonder? did you notice it? Laura Oh my, no, I didn't. I noticed that the hat was gone with the band as I wa...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Istanbul, September 19, 2012

Oh, as to the tickets and the (at least our initial ones, I'll come to that) thing: Our initial tickets were only 3rd category and quite, quite far from the stage--They don't pay one much for poetry, apparently. It was only due to the great generosity and kindness of Martin from Denmark (MartinB on ...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Istanbul, September 19, 2012

Is is a rather sad feeling to wake up one morning and realize that last night you’ve witnessed the highest possible level of artistic perfection though you’ve only got eighteen years behind you. A rather early climax; but oh well, Leonard Cohen is Leonard Cohen. I arrived at the venue about four and...

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEONARD!

Dear, dear Mr. Cohen, Happy birthday, and warmest greetings from Istanbul! I feel privileged to have been able to howl a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" two nights ago and even give you the impromptu gift of my (flying) fedora during Closing Time. May you grace our country again with your presence; and may you lo...

Re: OLD IDEAS WORLD TOUR: CONCERTS AND TICKET INFO

Turkish news agencies actually started announcing that the Istanbul concert on September 19th is confirmed.

If the concert is indeed confirmed, is there a possibility that we get a presale?

The Ash

Hello, fellow members of the wondrous forum dedicated to the wondrous man, I've not been writing much on the forum, but I read a lot and was happy indeed to share the love of Leonard Cohen-- the great poet. Now, I really felt like sharing one piece of my own writing, something that looks like a poem...

Re: The Tour 2010 Dates (so far)

What about Istanbul-Turkey?

I am aware of the fact that we enjoyed two wondrously beautiful concerts this summer, but it was the FIRST time Mr.Cohen came here to the beautiful city of Istanbul.

We deserve at least one other heavenly night of miraculous music, don't we? :)

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Chicago, October 29

Wondrous-- Well, of course it is, it's a Leonard Cohen piece. What I just wondered is that: when exactly (between which songs?) this song was played and did they drop anything from the classical set list? Maybe one of the extremely lucky Chicago concertgoers can clarify this? PS: Thank you very much...
