I'm not sure if this has been posted yet. On the tour page, the first concert is being shown to take place in Austin, TX Canada.

Southern Californians, delight. An early posting of the NA tour announcement listed THREE concerts for Los Angeles. They are now showing just one date, April10. Perhaps they are considering extra shows in LA? I hope so. If I can get tickets, I will go to all of them.

From the early annoucement:
10-Apr-09 Los Angeles, CA, USA Nokia Theatre
11-Apr-09 Los Angeles, CA, USA Nokia Theatre
11-Apr-09 Los Angeles, CA, USA Nokia Theatre
2009-San Diego|Los Ang|Nashville|St Louis|Kansas City|LVegas|San Jose
2010-Gothenburg|Berlin|Ghentx2|Oaklandx2|Portland|LVegasx2
2012-Austinx2|Denver|Los Ang|Seattle|Portland

Does anyone know if prices will be posted before the presale? I saw someone asked this on another forum, but it wasn't answered. If not, does anyone have any idea how much they might cost? I'm wondering about the Grand Prairie show particularly. I remember prices for the Beacon show were posted, but they now seem to be gone, and I can't remember them. Does anyone know?

Also, I suppose all shows start at 8 p.m. local time? If not, when will this be posted?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

That is great news that Leonard will be coming to Ottawa on this leg of the tour. I went to his show in Hamilton last year and of course want to see him again. I was wondering if the ticket prices are known for the Ottawa and Kingston shows?

For venues using Ticketmaster, they have posted 5 U.S. dates and 3 Canada dates so far.
Go on ticketmaster.com and search for Leonard Cohen. The screen that comes up shows those dates.
If you click on the "more info" button in orange, another screen comes up and at the top of the page in the middle you can see a button for "ticket prices." You can click it to get the prices - except for Vancouver - no prices shown at this time. I live in Maryland and Columbia is supposed to start presale on Monday but the venue is not listed yet. I hope ticketmaster gets that info up by the time the presale is supposed to start on Monday morning!

I was just wondering if presale tickets will include all price levels? I'm not sure I could afford paying "best available" prices at this point... BUT - very excited!!!

That coast to coast website lists tickets (at outrageous prices, of course) for sell for all the concerts of the tour (or so it seemed at first glance).

Even worse? Someone is SELLING the password for the Canadian shows on Ebay - for $29.99. I guess it's conceivable that this person might be getting the password from another source, but methinks we have a traitor in our midst! Whoever you are, go frak yourself!
