I didn't mind the people standing through Tower of Song - OK so I saw a bit less but the atmosphere generated by people dancing and enjoying themselves far outweighed the minor physical discomfort I suffered. It is a gig - not a movie that I'm watching. The band get a lot of energy from the audience in these circumstances - that's why the show took off during the encores - once the audiece starting dancing an singing to So Long Marianne - in fact Hallelujah would have been a lot better if it followed So Long Marianne.
Don't worry Melvyn, I won't be. Thanks for the warm welcome to a new poster though.Melvyn wrote:Cyril wrote: By the end, everyone was standing, like a proper concert.
Cyril, the fact that you think that standing makes it a proper concert is, I'm afraid, a personal matter of opinion.
This is Leonard Cohen after all; Rock 'n' Roll it's not. If I wanted to go to a concert & stand, I wouldn't go to a seated one!
Just hope you're not in row J next Tuesday!

It was only at the end that people were standing & moving forward. Leonard & the band seemed delighted by the audience response. I was seated upstairs at Bournemouth, it was a great concert but felt a bit 'flat'. Its not Rock & Roll, its not pop music but it is Live music.
Sorry this is turning into an argument after a wonderful, wonderful evening.

Sorry to anyone I annoyed by being in front of the stage for the encores. Leonard & the band looked as if they were loving it. Hello to anyone stood near me- I was right infront of Leonard in the 2nd 'row' wearing a red waterproof jacket. There was a lady with shoulder length dark hair in front of me & a gentleman of medium height & glasses to my left & 2 very enthusiastic young ladies just behind us calling for 'Hey thats no way'. It felt like a 'proper concert' - I did come away from a couple last feeling the music was great but the atmosphere a bit flat. Didn't notice the rain much.
