Hi Masterthief,

Thanks for putting the setlist up! I will do my best to update my list of setlists as often as possible so the aussie fans can prepare for the concerts if they want to (or print out the previous setlist to make notes during the concert).

Anyway, there doesn't seem to have changed a lot. Can you please let us know where the first set ended (after Anthem, I suppose) and how the encores were divided?
In case any of you want to review one of the previous setlists, go here (updated soon with the first Pacific concerts):

Enjoy your part of the tour, you guys have waited long enough!

Take care,
Maarten

Intermission was after Anthem. Didn't really keep notes on encores as he skipped on and off so quick. I'll talk to my partner to try and jog our memories.

I'll try and keep better notes in Auckland. Only other show for me is Melbourne 5 Feb (front row!). I have a ticket for 10 Feb but will probably have to give it up as I need to get back to New Zealand before then.

Well Done, Masterthief.
Looks like we're in for a repeat of the November 30 Manchester concert when we get to Brisbane next week.
Thanks

Re: Amazing concert last night (28/01/09)

Postby lyndac » Thu Jan 29, 2009 3:51 am

The concert last night (Sydney 28th Jan) was amazing - I have waited 40 years to see Leonard Cohen live and I will never forget last night. Just one thing - is there somewhere I can assess the words for the recitation Thousand kisses Deep - I have the words of the song from the CD's but I thought the verses last night were different? would appreciate someone's help?

Did anyone catch the name of the Spanish musician at the right of the stage who played a bazouki-like instrument? Keen to hear more of him.

Thanks
