I think meeting someone like Cohen would only be in passing.

I'm sure that you didnt mean any disrespect to Steve and Im also sure that Leonard would have been enriched by a handshake with Steve . Artists need their audience for inspiration . Here's to a great tour

Good on you Steve. He is in the maritimes afterall, we say hello to people here. :razz:
He is here wow a dream come true.

I hope to see you at the concert I am in Row H in the center I will be with three women. You must have a digital camera. Yes, I know you cannot take photos of the concert, but there will be an intermission, I hope they will open the bars, they usually do.

Hello everybody.
Finally decided to register here.

So here's a question: according to my calculations it's 11 PM over there in Fredericton, Canada. When has the concert started?

ARE WE GONNA SEE AN OFFICIAL SETLIST WITHIN THE NEXT HOURS ??

Because I'd be willing to stay up another couple of hours, even if it's 4 AM over here, to see what LC is dishing out in this day and age.

Peace,
Ken.

(Leonard Cohen fan since I was 7 years old.)

You forgot that it's 11pm on May 10th. Still 21 hours to go to the concert.

I saw the dress rehearsal this afternoon. It is going to be fabulous.

whoops, my calculations were wrong then, lol.
(at 4 AM in the night one is allowed to make mistakes like that, isn't one? :oops: )

OK, well at least I can go to bed then. But tomorrow I want to see a SETLIST or I will be VERY unhappy.

a massive THANK YOU in advance to the person who rushes to an internet cafe after the show and posts the setlist first. :D

The show is tomorrow and I'm sure there'll be a setlist up quite soon afterward. Don't worry about pictures because I'm sure it will be well covered (first show in 15 years).

Super photo of the venue... thanks, Steven! So much to anticipate with all of this!

The grueling of the show itself, preceded by six-hour rehearsals!?! Leonard's inherent commitment to quality is so intense and having so many people merge for this tour... it has to be quite the assignment for the Jazz Captain. I want the brand names, milligrams, and dosages of Leonard's vitamins.

A great way that you handled your meeting, Steve 8) . This whole tour is going to be an energy drain and an energy source for Leonard.

Such a blessing that you were able to see [all of the six-hour?] rehearsal, Tyerxa 8) The descriptions regarding the equipment suggest that this is going to be massive music for all, filling us from the inside out.

Is it just a coincidence that Leonard is starting his tour at Pentecost . Very symbolic anyway . We asked for signs ...........
I love this interpretation, lonndubh :) .

I'm really looking forward to reading all of the anecdotes, accounts, and reports and seeing the photos and footage. This is SO exciting, to see it all begin... so many years suspended in lack of belief that it ever would... and here it is, world stage, beginning now. What a gift to all of us. Thank you, Leonard!


Love,
Elizabeth

I am sure you will hear from Steve before me. I drove past the Playhouse this evening saw the big busses my stomach is doing flips. WOW
