Just been browsing through the clips on Youtube and reading the reports on here
The people who run this site deserve a lot of credit for the superb effort they have made to get the tour out to the the fans. An absolute top class web site.

We are going to the Edinburgh Concert and while the reports from elsewhere confirm wonderful nights let me tell you that Edinburgh will be the daddy of the tour.

The castle venue is wonderful and the sound system will create a party time like no other.

Cant wait.Just cant wait.

Hello....first post on here though I`ve lurked for years :)

Does anyone know what time Leonard is due on stage :?: Due to unforeseen circumstances I`m going to struggle to get through to Edinburgh before 7.30 at the earliest.Will have to find somewhere to park as well if anyone has any suggestions :!:

I do hope this does not turn out to be a disaster :roll:

Any help appreciated..!!

Thank you :D

Altass,

My ticket for Edinburgh says that gates open at 7pm and that LC will be on stage at 8pm. As far as I know there is no warm-up act. I can't help you with parking, I'm afraid -- from where I live I always take the train to Edinburgh -- but my sense is that street parking anywhere near the centre is a complete nightmare.

Good luck!

Just checked the weather and it is going to be sunny in Edinburgh on Wednesday.YAHOO.
I wonder if Leonard and his band come to Edinburgh the night before.
How do the band and Leonard get to all the shows.Where do they sleep etc.I know you cannot go into specifics because of security reasons but it would be interesting to know about all the preparations that need to be made for example for his concert in Edinburgh.
It is easy for the fans we just turn up and go GA GA.
Maybe this could be an item for the forum.
Getting closer to Wednesday I personally will not be able to get much sleep on Tuesday night.Will be playing some of his music Wednesday before I go to the concert.
Looking forward to being amongst his fans.
Kind Regards
Trish.

Altass - there is a parking lot (NCP) at the bottom of Lothian Road on a street called Castle Terrace, which will be a 5 min walk to the castle from there, unfortunately I dont know what time it closes. Otherwise I'm not too sure cause I dont drive! If you stick round that area you should be safe enough I know theres loads of single yellow lines round about there so I think you can park on them, its literally below the castle, next to whats called the west end of Edinburgh.

Parking

Cant believe its only a day away now, still pinching myself. My plan is to leave work early, have a bite eat and a few drinks. Wonder if they will be selling any merchandise? Wonder if he will be wearing his fedora! sooooooooooooooooo exciting

How is everybody feeling now it is only hours to go to the Edinburgh concert.
I am pretty excited and still feel as if it is a dream.
We can clearly see the castle from our back garden and everytime I look up at the castle I cannot believe I will be seeing Mr Cohen there in a short while.
See you all there.
Trish.

I'll be travelling through from Glasgow with friends, early evening. Then on to the the 02 in London on Thursday for the next leg of the tour.

Can't believe I'm getting another chance, nay two, after all these years. We'll be in the "Hebrides Bar" in Market Street before hand. Hope to see some of you there.

That was very kind of you :D

If you're short of time I'd use the Castle Street Car Park, the Meadows is a hike if you're in a hurry..

Anyone know where the band are staying? I would assume the Balmoral?
