I have just watched Ingrid's videos - good stuff.
I must say that during 'whither thou goest' the 'object' that looks like Fred (same colour/size etc) is, I think, the flower/s that are passed to Sharon Robinson. You can see them more clearly, in Sharon's left hand, a little later in the video.

Dave
I happened to have the data stick with my Antwerp photos on in my bag so I checked the Whither Thou Goest shots. Sorry but there is definitely no sign of Fred; as Dave says, the object is a small bouquet of roses in some sort of coloured cellophane held in Sharon's left hand. For what it's worth, there is no sign of any wilt. I was going to post the photo but I have no technology here to blank out Roscoe's son's face and I don't feel it is my place to post a photograph of him on a public forum.

Good to know that Fred still visits us Dave!

Wendy

Indeed it are roses! The lady who gave them was standing just next to us. By the way, who is FRED?

Ingrid - check out The Monkey and the Plywood Violin topic which has now been moved to this Summer Tour section - all will be revealed to you :lol: .

Thank you all for your reviews of this concert and welcome to all the new posters - hope you stay around this wonderful forum. I could feel the heat and all the love for LC from all these great reviews. It's so nice to know LC was received so enthusiastically.

And thank you Maarten for all the lovely photos. Loved the one of Sharon in particular.

Best regards,
Mary

Lovely pictures, Maarten, of an amazing concert! Thanks for sharing, as I did not take any this time (I was in the 19th row).

Leonard was so very much "alive and kicking"! He seemed at least five years younger than in Brussels or Bruges. How does he manage that? Once again, he gave us an unforgettable evening, which will live in our memory for ever!
Thank you so much, Mr. Cohen, for adding your beautiful music and words to my life , ever since I was young. It really means a lot to me. And due to your music, I recently found a really nice new friend, isn't that wonderful too? Ja Bart1979, ik heb je wel herkend! Groetjes aan mijn "maatje", en nog eens bedankt voor de Cohen-cd die je me donderdag gaf. Inderdaad héél mooi! Van Anjani Thomas heb ik ook nog de CD "Blue Alert", waarover je op deze site meer kan lezen. Ze ging hiervoor aan de slag met een aantal onafgewerkte Cohen-nummers.Cohen was mede-producer.( Ze zingt trouwens ook "Nightingale" op "Dear Heather".)
I came so far for beauty, I left so much behind...

A fantastic concert again last week in Antwerp. Even better than last year in Rotterdam, where we saw and heard LC for the first time in our life. I still can't stand forgetting LC after the sixties and rediscovering him so much later, but not too late! Next month we go to Colmar and who knows to another concert in september.

Tinkie:
For the blessings at the end of the concert, Marteen is right ...he said "...don't catch a summer cold...." and by the way ....at the very end of the show, who throw the banana on the stage that Leonard picked up with a huge smile on his face ?

I really would like to know because it was so surrealist, so improbable... so funny and so nice to see that fans care about the monkey !!! what about the plywood violin ?

All the best
Tinkie
The Flower and Banana was thrown on the stage by Corrie Roeleveld.

Hello there everybody,

I am new on the forum. I attented the concert in Antwerp, 2009, Fourth of July. Enjoyed this concert very much. I am looking for the playlist that evening. I thought Mr. Cohen and his band ended the concert by the song Famous Blue Raincoat (o.c. there was at the end Whiter Thou Goest).

Thank you all, most kind regards,

Bert

Late comment.. but was there too with my wife. And Sir Cohen, you have touched us in a way that Music can do, but does rarely. Thank you.
I have been following you for +20 years now, having been introduced to your music through my parents.

We are sure to relive this experience soon.. in Nîmes we'll be present :-) !
