Are the reviews always this good?

I am having a hard time believing that one man can cause such bliss everywhere he goes. After three days, our night in Fort Lauderdale is still ringing in my soul and ALL the reviews have been utter hyperbole.

Is it always like this?

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Ft Lauderdale, October 17

Music unlocks the human spirit. Leonard Cohen is a keymaster. We finally had the pleasure of seeing the man perform live in concert on October 17th, 2009. It was a metaphysical jailbreak. When the spark inside the body is released by music, it flows toward the highest common denominator. Freedom see...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Ft Lauderdale, October 17

my dilemma now is whether to video record more tunes in tampa, or audio record the entire show or do a mixture of video, audio, and pictures. i'm not first row anymore. If you are taking requests, I would love to see Closing Time on video. :lol: May I use your still photographs on my blog when I po...

It seemed like the entire first set was sparkly fresh like that. We were blown away, to put it lightly.

Re: Please post setlists of the Fall 2009 Tour in USA here!!!

It was just spectacular. I recomposed the encore selections afterward. I could possibly have missed a song there. I was just having too much fun to mess around with my index card & pencil at that point. Indeed it was. Your list looks spot on to me, thank you so much. We were in the club seats with ...

Re: Tonight's the night!

Went back and read through the tweets, I find it hard to believe that the show did not open with "Dance Me...", I guess we will know for sure soon enough. You are correct, the show started with Dance Me, and I'm Your Man was the last song of the second set. Forgive my lack of details right now, it ...

Re: Tonight's the night!

Thanks Di, I know it is a (nearly) impossible dream. I have had things like that happen to me before, we shall see how strong my mojo is currently.

I will send the bliss we feel directly into the night sky, breathe it in with us!

Tonight's the night!

And so it begins. I live in Miami, and I have never felt more blessed. I did a photoshop portrait to celebrate: http://fullbodytransplant.wordpress.com/2009/10/17/in-the-air-tonight/ We are off to the show, with club seats that include full buffet and unlimited beer. I will have a full report in the...
