Steve and Tri-me and all in attendance:

we are on pins and needles knowing it is happening as I type this!

Also have promised Esther a phone call tomorrow with all the reports of the first night that are posted here.

Please, all there, give as much as you can of your impressions as well as the facts (set-list, etc)

ENJOY the return of Field Commander Cohen!

Okay, this is ridiculous.

If I don't see a setlist posted in this section of the forum within the next 3 hours, I am going to kill my cat and post pictures of it.








...maybe.

Unfortunately I have a sense that people in attendance will be too euphoric to post anything for several hours after a concert, we will hear from them only after they get back to earth....

ps.
here is a clip of a waiting line to the box office in Fredericton in March:

That's what I think too, Mirka: getting to a computer wouldn't be a priority for me after coming out of such an event.

The concert was FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Leonard's voice was terrific - very strong. Band was awesome. First song was "Dance me to the end of love". Lots of material from The Future. Nothing from Songs of Love and Hate.

More Later.

What an amazing evening. I'm afraid I can't post a set list, but Leonard started at just after eight, took one intermission, and finished just before eleven. Incredible. He had a big smile on his face for much of the evening and clearly enjoyed the audience response. We were so privileged to hear him in such a small venue. He sang Democracy, I'm Your Man, Everybody Knows, Suzanne, Hallelujah (sublime), Tower of Song, So Long Marianne, Bird on a Wire, First We Take Manhattan, The Future, and many, many more. The last song was Closing Time. The musicians and singers were outstanding.

Leonard - thank you, thank you, thank you.
