LC tribute concert, Melbourne

This concert is a re-run of ones I enjoyed in 2015 and 2016, highlighting Hydra with its background visuals, whilst the performers do justice to Leonards' music, but paying additional special tribute to Leonard in this instance: http://www.hellenic.org.au/hydra-songs-and-tales-of-bohemia The venue, ...

I echo your irritation re that, Wendy, but enjoyed the show nevertheless, even though I would say I've preferred other performers doing Leonard's songs in similar shows. :neutral:

Cheers,

Re: Tributes to Leonard around the world

Below is a touching and very fitting tribute to Leonard, by way of two large posters (4m x 2.5m) placed in horizontal alignment on the external wall of an art gallery located on a busy road here in Melbourne. (I couldn't get them in one shot, as I would've been run over by the traffic. ;-))

Here's a an article highlighting how 'You Want It Darker' has bounced back up the charts here in Oz, above its earlier highest spot (6th), into 2nd spot, with 'The Essential Leonard Cohen' also cracking the top 15, at number 12: http://themusic.com.au/news/all/2016/11/19/illy-lands-1-aus-debut-as-le...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I'm not sure if this has been posted in here yet.

Anyway, it's a shortened YouTube version of LEONARD COHEN - The Last Interview (September 2016) published by David Remnick on Nov 10th:

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Words seem inadequate at such a time: I’m sitting quietly, in tearful emotion, with a mixture of sadness and joy.

Leonard has been such a big part of my adult life and spiritual world... he will continue to be so.

My sincere condolences to his family at this time.

RIP, Leonard.

Re: Australian TV

Hi Alan, I really enjoyed that RocKwiz, though I usually do anyway. ;-) Even though there were no apparent big LC fans amongst the four panelist competitors selected, I think the two musicians may have been more so inclined and there was a fair bit of focus on Leonard throughout the show anyway. I a...

Hi Ken,

Sorry for the delay, but I only just saw your question tonight. ;-)

In answer to it, I can't imagine anyone wanting to request that. :lol:

Cheers,
