Did anyone catch the lovely little bit of scat type vocal he did towards the end of Ain't No Cure - bo, ba dah (or something to that effect)? Beautiful.

"Last fall all European concerts were taped with many cameras in HD quality in 16:9 ratio for future use of Leonard and his management!"

Was Kilmainham also taped? I read somewhere that it wasn't.

Hello beckerbon,

Welcome to the forum. My husband and I had the extreme pleasure of meeting your brother and his wife in Hamilton, Ontario (at the beginning of the tour) after the end of the concert over drinks in their hotel bar. You've got some fantastic relatives.

I am surprised that no one has posted any concert photos yet. Perhaps, they are still trying to organize their thoughts after coming off the high of the concert. There is still hope that some will be posted. Just keep checking and as Jarkko already said, there will be soundcheck photos coming if you were looking for a photo of your brother in shorts. His look at the soundcheck was so humanly endearing :D .

Best regards,
Mary

However, it remains to be seen whether or not the online shop with official downloads will come true. A lot of rights issues have to be solved first.
What about video? Has Leonard's crew videoed every show, or only at those venues that required it for big screens?

Linda, thank you for the photo and the youtube link. Great stuff! There is also some detailed info on the physicality of the Kohen forming the hand gesture somewhere else on this Forum. Eventually, with Mod Marie's help, I will try to assemble LC's Priestly Blessings and related background info, including your great links, in one place.

WOW!! Thanks J. Wonderful. I am just loving these pictures.

Venice is just gorgeous - and the pics of Leonard and entourage, and social gatherings of other people, are gorgeous as well!! :D :D

Pic 6904 - love the casual attire - Bob, Javier, Dino.
And same in 6913 - the Angels in casual attire. :lol:

Jarkko - 6601, 6615, 6885 - nice!!!

Jarkko, thanks for posting these pictures. they are wonderful. The shots of Venice are beautiful and St marks, what a fantastic venue. I especially enjoyed the pictures of the forum members and their friends and families. It looks like you were all having a great time. I also like the pictures of leonard in the cafe and especially the shot of him on the boat. I just might have a new screen saver!

Oh my! The photos and their quality - STUPENDOUS! Thanks to Marco, Wijbe, Tom, Ken, and Eija for taking them and to Jarkko for posting them. It is much appreciated.

Best regards,

I love the photos Leonard looks so healthy and relaxed and it is really really lovely to see old friends again. Venice looks beautiful and that venue has to come close to being the nicest venue on the tour.

Cheers for posting the photos I now have a new selection of screensavers

Jarkko and Eija, can I add my thanks. As it was very likely the last show for me, I took my camera along to have a record. However, it failed me! So, to have this wonderful collection along with those forwarded by Andrea is a real life saver. Paula, for me it was the best venue and will be a memory to cherish for ever. The image of Leonard pointing with Sharon was taken during the sound check in 'there ain't no cure', he points to the sculpture on top of the Campo tower and urges the girls to 'sing it to the Angel'..... Magic!

Thank you Jarkko so very much for posting the photos. They are excellent! Venice is incredibly beautiful and it was so good to see everyone so casual and happy. Leonard is looking wonderful.

Just curious...photos 6969 and 6971, are they by any chance a proposal?
