Other less publicized Leonard Cohen Dates- The Secret List

Postby mickey_one » Mon Nov 17, 2008 2:38 am

Am I really the only one going to the Vatican City gig. There has been no discussion of the gig on the Forum and for this I blame Jarkko who has been far too busy eating curry in Brick Lane instead of attending to his highly paid contractual obligations on this website I created so many years ago.

You forgot his very exclusive concert in The Sea of Tranquility...

Due to the amazing sucess of this tour, Boris Johnson (Mayor of London) has been in contact with Leonard's management.
I am unable to reveal exactly what was agreed ,due to security reasons.However my understanding is that a short set list has been agreed for the Olympic opening ceremony.
I also have been given assurances that 10,000 tickets will be made available in advance to members of this forum (thanks once again jarkko!) and these will shortly be on sale.
As I have privileged information I don't feel that I can leak any of the set list but I feel his songs fit the occasion perfectly.
As always more news will be realised via this forum.

I was shocked to hear of the cancellation of the Olympic Opening Ceremony Leonard Cohen Concert and I feel that his rendition of the National Anthem at next year's Cup Final is a poor replacement indeed.

You say don't be silly but...

Now Leonard has been freed from his Olympic responsibities I have it on good authority he is looking for further sporting venues in which to further showcase his talents.Hence the cup final date.
Padma ,the Queensway Ice Rink as a venue has not been fully ruled out yet.BUT there are one or two issues concerning the skate hire that have yet to be sorted.
Fingers crossed.
Watch this space.

breaking news...
The working title of "Leonard Cohen on Ice" that has been leaked to the press has NOT been confirmed by the tour management.

The one that makes me laugh out loud is RAH On the Stage. Visions of Javier Mas being forced to stand while you sit in his red velvet chair.

Which reminds me...what IS with all the oriental rugs onstage?? I am sooooo afraid of someone tripping, I haven't been able to go to any concerts since July. ;-)

Ahh....so someone has finally spotted Padma's gift to Leonard.
I guess that her bathroom is looking pretty bare these days.

It's not just the bathroom that's bare - my rooms are all bare .........maybe - when the tour is over, he might return them to me?

oh yes there was, you just ain't in the Inner Inner Inner Circle (and nor is Jarkko btw). I must confess that the Wednesday evening gig was nowhere near as good as Thursday's. Must go now, Leonard is on stage in an hour
