Re: Glastonbury (June 29)

I'm slightly puzzled by this outrage. His performances in Fredericton, Moncton, St. John's, Halifax, Toronto, Montreal, Dublin, Manchester and others have not been broadcast for those unable to attend in person; if you missed the show, you missed the show. That is typically how live performances wor...

Re: MONTREAL (JUNE 23-25)

Review from The Gazette with many pictures: Jazz Fest: Concert Review: Leonard Cohen at Place des Arts, June 23 Well, I have to disagree with his opening line, but it was a pretty good review (although a bit short, I thought). Montreal is my hometown... I would have loved to have seen the show ther...

Re: Additonal Cohen Remasters & New Album 2008 ???

also... what is going on with the new album? I suspect that it's completed and final mixing has yet to be done... perhaps during the break in the tour later this year, to release the remasters and this new album before kicking off with additional dates in 2009??? I recall two tracks leaking out fro...

Re: Maclean's about Leonard (with backstage video!)

Excerpts from the MacLean's articles worth special noting - Expecting to cover the U.S. and Western Canada next year, he promises to be on the road for a while: "As the Irish say, with the help of God and two policemen, the tour may last a year and a half, or two." Q: You started this tour in small...

Re: Five Concerts in Halifax (May 12 to 17)

I think being humble and gracious is just in his character, regardless of his level of fame or the admiration he's received. It's just him . I am reminded of Leonard's Note To The Reader, which I love: In any case, I thank you for your interest in this odd collection of jazz riffs, pop-art jokes, re...

This made me laugh. There are lots of leather-jacket-clad folks in Moncton. :P

Just got home, and still processing things. It was everything everyone else has said about previous shows: magical and inspiring and emotional and just... perfect. Wow.

Re: Does every show on the tour need multi threads?

I like the idea of one thread per city for discussion, but what about also having a thread that is reserved for press clippings-- reviews and pictures-- from ALL locations, so that it is kept neatly in one spot and easily accessible? You could also have a set list thread-- just for the set lists fro...

Re: Avoiding Scams and Touts & Dealing with eBay

CBC's Marketplace had an interesting show a couple of weeks back about ticket resellers and their use of automated programs to snap up tix... worth a watch, or at least a browse on the site:

Re: 8 new cities in The Maritimes

I'm honestly just curious about this and not complaining, as I managed to snag tickets to the Moncton show... but, any clue why there are five shows in Halifax, three in St. John's and only one each in Moncton and Fredericton? Five shows in Hali seems like a lot-- any particular reason, I wonder? An...

Re: Pre-booking to Maritimes area cancelled!

Tri-me, what were they saying about getting tickets in Fredericton? I live in Moncton but am unable to go to the Moncton show, so am hoping to score some to F'ton... do you have to be there in person or will phone/online suffice? This is giving me butterflies...
