Calling all Hobartian LC Fans

If you live in Tasmania and think you might be interested in attending the pre-launch celebration for my book ‘8 States of Catastrophe’ in January, please grab yourself an invite via http://www.karenleethompson.com Why am I shamelessly promoting my own event on this forum ? Well, there is a little b...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Perth, Australia, November 24, 2010

That's It For Australia & NZ
Thanks again Dean for your excellent reporting on the concerts. You kept my memories alive and I will be in touch to get your postal address so I can send something to you.
Hope you don't have too much trouble 'coming down' from the euphoria.
Cheers,

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Hobart, Australia, 15 November 2010

Dean (from Adelaide)But ... that's really just my opinion. I would also be really interested to know what other people think. Are LC fan's enjoying Clare's sets ... or just politely clapping, waiting for the main act to come on? I saw Clare at the Brisbane concert and enjoyed her performance very mu...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Melbourne, Australia, Nov. 12-13, 2010

Finally, it was so good to hear first hand about Dean’s Oz/NZ Leonard tour experience – something he conveys with such enthusiasm and joy. He deserves some sort of award I reckon – perhaps we could call it the ‘Travelled So Far for Beauty’ award! I couldn't agree more. Having managed just the one c...

Re: CONCERT THREAD: Brisbane, Australia, Nov. 6, 2010

A few people claiming front row middle - amazingly they were actually two empty seats! (we were next to them though :) ) As a writer, I can't help but wonder about those empty seats...what happened that was so terrible as to prevent two people from turning up to the concert of a lifetime? Life is a...

Re: CONCERT THREAD: Brisbane, Australia, Nov. 6, 2010

I'm happy to arrange a lanyard for your mum (and for anyone else from the forum who PMs me or tracks me down at a concert -- right now I am travelling with a few to each show, just in case). See my post on this thread for some ideas on arranging logistics: http://www.leonardcohenforum.com/viewtopic...

Great review Dean. It was a pleasure to meet you and thanks so much for the lanyard. I've posted my own small review also at http://karenleethompson.wordpress.com and have linked to your blog.
Are you going to the Hobart concert? My mother is going and I would love for her to have a lanyard.

Re: Happy Birthday Leonard (76 on September 21, 2010)

Happy Happy Birthday to a beautiful old soul with a wonderful young heart. It is a sad day for me as it is my faithful old canine companion's last day but I will console myself with the knowledge that I only have to wait another 65,825 minutes until you walk onto the stage in Brisbane. Don't forget ...

Re: AUSTRALIA AND NZ - TICKET LINKS

This seems so unfair, DAVO, isn't there something we can do to help?
Even if you missed out on getting presale here, I am sure you could still get some great seats. Tell us what venue you are wanting to go to and surely we could make some suggestions to help you get your tickets. Don't give up.

Re: AUSTRALIA AND NZ - PRESALE LINKS NOW AVAILABLE

I thank every single one of you for helping me. And thanks so much for the link. I thought I had to wait until Monday but I have my tickets already and I am simply over the moon. Thank heavens for credit cards! I have scored seats 41-42 in row AA in Brisbane. I have never been to the Brisbane Entert...

Re: AUSTRALIA AND NZ - SALE INFO

I am incredibly excited about the forthcoming Australian leg of the tour. I missed out on seeing Leonard last time and spent months in an indigo funk that I had failed to fight my way out of. Now I am wondering how I can prod the publisher to get my novel published before then which would be fun, gi...
