LEONARD COHEN IN FLORIDA (OCTOBER 17-19, 2009)

Postby Roy » Sun Aug 02, 2009 4:37 pm

Will any of you be going to the Leonard Cohen concerts in Fort Lauderdale or Tampa? Anyone going to both? :D

Do you think Leonard Cohen has 20,000 fans in Fort Lauderdale and 20,000 fans in Tampa to fill up all the seats, let alone 20,000 fans in all of Florida? :o :shock: FLORIDA POPULATION - 18 MILLION. FORT LAUDERDALE POPULATION - 200,000; MIAMI POPULATION - 450,000; TAMPA POPULATION - 350,000. Does Leonard Cohen sleep on the tour bus or does he stay at a fancy hotel? I'm wondering if he will be staying at The Riverside Hotel on Las Olas Boulevard in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

I'm going to try to make it to the Fort Lauderdale concert.

I'm going to go to both, Roy. My suspicion is that when Leonard is in Ft. Lauderdale, he'll stay with Esther Miami. I'm not one to try to track him down where[ever] he's staying, anyway.

It'd be great to finally meet you. I'm wondering, too, about philrose. I know... I was shocked to see Florida on his schedule :shock: . The C&W folk are mighty strong here. Still... today, I talked with one woman who I used to work with, who told me about a phone conversation she had last night with another woman both of us worked with... and the other woman was holding the phone up to the TV and then put it on speaker phone [for better listening] to Leonard singing on some PBS program... footage of one of his concerts! They both really liked it! [These are Christian Right and C&W women... I was stunned!] They've both recently had medical procedures and neither have the kind of money needed for the concerts, so won't be going. But I LOVED that they actually liked Leonard!!! Not that it should be surprizing, in that sense, but you know, after awhile, you just tend to give up on people coming around... however, I think my point is that it seems PBS is putting him on their schedule, so who knows... between the Jewish community in the Miami area, and Tampa having some sense about it... who knows... I sure HOPE all will go well. Meanwhile, they both knew that he is MY Man! YOU know that this is not typical Cohen territory.

I managed to get tickets for Atlanta which is actually 150 miles closer to my home than Tampa. Thats 300 miles less driving on round trip and less gas expense. Seats are in the peanut gallery but I don't care. Leonard has been in my life since 1972 and I finally get to a live concert.
I'm still going to try to get tickets for the Tampa show. If I do I'll fly from Tampa to Atlanta for that show.

Can't wait.

FIRST Row in TAMPA!?!?! What time were you on the TM site to get them, Linda?? [This is what I didn't want to do :shock: !]
CONGRATULATIONS... even if I'm a bit, well, never mind... ;-) .


Philrose! I've only just come to this thread. That's great! Where is your seat??

Notice how the seats behind the stage for the Fort Lauderdale concert are not being offered and won't be used, but the ones in Tampa will be because they've got a club up there and I'm guessing some big monitors to watch the concert on as well. It could just be because there aren't that many Leonard Cohen fans in Fort Lauderdale.

I was telling my Mother that I was going to be getting tickets to see the show in Fort Lauderdale. She confessed that she already got them for my Birthday!

God Bless Mothers!

Madder Alice,

Congrats on finally becoming a member and welcome! Will this be your first LC concert? Do make sure to check back in case there will be a meetup - that is, if you are interested.

Best regards,
