Re: Coffee and candour with Cohen / Globe and Mail

Most definitely, this seems to be written by someone who 'gets' our Cohen. Funny how pronounced the distinction is in such reviews. My family read through all the reviews in the Australian papers, saying, "ooh, this reviewer gets him... this one doesn't!" Anyway, I think this one does. My favourite ...

Re: Thanks for the tour and generosity

On the topic of turnarounds: I had the cute idea of posting an ad on Facebook which read "I have a spare ticket for Leonard Cohen on 10th Feb, to go to the highest bidder. Cash not acceptable, think creatively..." I thought it was a terrific idea, given how many people I know who couldn't afford tic...

Re: Melbourne Tuesday 10 Feb

dce... I have no idea whether Leonard would really call someone a bastard in that context... how well do we know him, after all? The Leonard I have conjured in my own imagination would jest in such a way, no malice in it, just a joke shared between friends, and certainly a fun play on words (did no-...

Re: Melbourne Tuesday 10 Feb

Hello, friends - it's Honor, here. After the Rochford concert and the Rod Laver one on the 5th Feb, I couldn't resist spending the last of my pennies on tickets for the 10th... I knew the expense would be forgotten sometime during the opening bars... For those of you eager for every detail: Someone ...

Re: Rochford Winery - the first Australian show

Of course, Davido! Here are the extra songs (they're listed under a Unified Heart logo) ... Heart With No Companion A Thousand Kisses Deep (I presume the sung version, since the listing notes: 'F minor') There is A War One of Us Cannot Be Wrong That Don't Make it Junk (I'm thinking that about my poo...

Re: Rochford Winery - the first Australian show

Oh, wasn't it wonderful? I jotted all the songs down, but was later given a band-member's set-list, with some notes. I've included them below. There is also a list of ten songs at the side that they didn't play... maybe we didn't shout hard enough for an encore... On a personal note... I wore my own...

Re: petition for U.S. dates?

Oh, my goodness! Can this be true? I was counting on a U.S. leg of the tour... I have an accommodation offer in New York, which means I could (just) afford to travel across the globe from Melbourne especially to see Leonard perform. At the moment, flying to AND staying in Europe is quite beyond my h...

Re: First song to be performed

I can see him singing Back on Boogie Street, as it's a song he recorded since he last toured... but I like the suggestion of Minute Prologue. Incidentally, my uncle's the chaplain at an all boys' college in Melbourne, and I believe he once opened assembly by singing that song unaccompanied. Brave ma...

Re: What should his tour be called?

ha-ha! Yes! Tell me about it, Rob. I'm looking at a round-the-world ticket before I can even reach the right hemisphere! (but what an incredibly fun, unexpected adventure to be contemplating, despite all those bills' being due!) With that song now in my head... I suppose the "Coming Back to You Tour...

Re: Leonard Cohen: TOUR 2008

Thanks, Lizzy, it's lovely to be welcomed by people on the other side of the world. After switching off the computer and falling into bed last night, I dreamt I was walking in snow... and, Thanks, Dick. How nice! You may quote me any time. But how difficult it is to persuade someone of Cohen's magic...

Re: Leonard Cohen: TOUR 2008

Oh, you lucky, LUCKY people who are at least on the right side of the planet! Now I have to figure out if I can afford to do something wild and drop everything and go overseas especially. The temptation's huge! But the cost! Also huge. I'm one of those people who have just "come out of the woodwork"...

Considering it's what we've been waiting for all this time, surely...

Oh, I WON'T settle for second-best! Can't we have him? Otherwise, I'll have to pack my bags and head on over. I was too young to be allowed to go when he was last here in Melbourne in 1988 (I think...) But my mother promised she'd take me next time. I've been waiting ever since! It's so exciting to ...
