Nice banner! LOL!
The concert at the Westerpark in Amsterdam was one of the best I ever been!
Nice to see so many Cohen addicts there!
I'm looking forward to Leonard's concert in Berlin and Hamburg!

It took me some time to figure out how to show the pictures that I made in Amsterdam. You can see them at

I hope it works.
I was standing front row and could almost taste Leonard. Hmmm, that would have been nice ;-)
Enjoy them.

Wasn't in the right position to take good pictures of Leonard Cohen, so I took more pictures of the crowd and the merchandise: http://www.flickr.com/photos/midnightco ... nardcohen/

Hello all,

just wanted to let you know that one last article about the Amsterdam concert has appeared on the internet (in German):
http://www.spirit-fanzine.de/index2.htm

then click on "Heroes", then on: "New! Leonard Cohen" .

Is anyone also going to go to Oberhausen? If so, see you there, maybe!

Hi Maurice,
you're welcome!
Yes, I hope to meet some of you fellow-Cohenites in Oberhausen, too! Just let us arrange something at the end of October; we could go for that Irish pub that has been suggested, for example, but we should probably transfer the discussion to the "Oberhausen meetup"-thread!
Oh, I SO much hope that Leonard is going to sing "Avalanche", "Famous Blue Raincoat" and "Gypsie Wife" in Oberhausen, too... ;-)

A 13-minute MP3 entitled 20080713_Leonard_KohenConcert_Amsterdam can be heard here: http://radiozamaaneh.com/azadeh/2008/07/post_117.html
Sounds like a reportage with impressions of concert-goers & fragments of songs from studio releases.

That is a handsome photo set. And she actually managed to get quite a few that show Leonard's eyes, which isn't so common, given the double challenge to a photographer of the shadow of the hat brim and Leonard's way of closing his eyes at moments of lyrical intensity.
