There's no need to wait until mid-August for the next bit of news. Something special is being planned for the long weekend of November 5 - 7, 2017 (Sun-Tues), in Leonard's beautiful hometown of Montreal. So keep your calendars open and your travel agent on speed dial. An official announcement and press release is expected to be released in early September.

That sounds very exciting! I can only guess that there will be some special tribute and unveiling of some kind of memorial in Montreal. Looking forward to the info and hope to be able to attend.

Sorry for all this speculation but the options are narrowing down...

'll bet that it is not a product (book or album) at all. I'm more inclined to think that something will happen either on his birthday in September or on the anniversary of his death in November.
Who said that? :D

Cohen seems to be in the spotlight in Montreal in November:

The Cohen-inspired exhibition at the MACM opens on November 9.

Looking forward to more details

Dear Jarkko
Could you please do me a very small favour and tell prime minister Trudeau or other relevant persons that the event in question has to be postponed as I am not available the first half of November. :(
Thanks in advance,
Harald

"So the great affair is over..." For those of us who won't be able to make it to Montreal in November.

Thank you Marie and Jarkko. Perhaps this announcement should have been originally posted on the Leonard Cohen events thread as it applies mainly to those who attend such events? Probably few of us in Europe would be willing/able to book a trip to Montreal in Nov., especially as we won't know until September what the "something special" involves. I just hope that some of the good suggestions made on this thread which would be applicable to the many of us who so enjoyed LC 's concerts and music will be acted on. And to those of you who can get to Montreal, ENJOY!

It's not going to be one of "our" Events but something much more.
And yes, many wishes mentioned in this thread will become reality, not this year but a bit later (here we need to introduce again the famous P-word).

I suggest to fans who are planning to come to Mtl. In November, to purchase the tickets for LC's exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art, before it is sold out.

Now, finally, a post by Jarkko which begs not for patience but just for a logical mind to work out why you might not need to book for the exhibition when it opens to the public!

I still have a nice feeling that access to the exhibition won't be the only thing going on ... but for the rest we need .. what's the word ... patience!
