Corrections to Wikipedia entry

Postby jim devlin » Thu Nov 05, 2015 11:53 pm

I notice that the most recent modifications to the Wikipedia entry on Leonard's tour 2008-2010 are dated October 29, just last week. However, the very first page of that entry still contains several errors of fact!!
So, if anyone knows how to add the following details to correct the mistakes on that page - cos I don't, we can all then be grateful ...

World Tour by Leonard Cohen

Start date ... May 11, 2008 [not June 14, 2008]
End date ... December 11, 2010
Legs ... 9 [not 13]
Number of shows ... 84 in North America [not 94]
... 136 in Europe [not 135; they didn't include Valencia, Sept.18, 2009]
... 26 in Oceania
... 1 in Middle East
... 247 in total [not 256]

Thank you in advance to the kind soul/s out there who may be able to sort this out for us all.

So, I've just had a go to correct the errors in the Old Ideas World Tour pages: i.e. the song-counts for 1st North American leg, 2nd European leg and the final Aus/NZ leg.
Thanks again Hartmut for the help.

It's not always that easy. Changes for some entries need to be vetted first, I think. And some entries are locked for unregistered users.

Those Wikipedia pages prompted a lot of nice memories as well as a touch of sadness that the touring seems , for sure , over.

Well, it certainly has been paid for. But is it really over, finished, completed?
