She is in Ourense, waiting for the concert to begin!
Leonard Cohen actuará ante 4.000 personas en el Paco Paz
Ourense - 12-09-2010 Unas 3.900 personas asistirán hoy en Ourense al concierto del músico canadiense Leonard Cohen, que forma parte de la programación diseñada para el Camino de la Música del Xacobeo 2010 y cuyas entradas se agotaron el pasado miércoles.

El pabellón Paco Paz abrirá sus puertas a las 19.30 horas, según informa la Consellería de Cultura e Turismo en un comunicado en el que apunta que el recital comenzará a las 21.00 horas.

Desde su regreso a los escenarios en 2008, el artista, a sólo diez días de cumplir 76 años, ha ofrecido alrededor de 200 conciertos en todo el mundo.

En la actualidad, Cohen se encuentra inmerso en una gira europea que este domingo le lleva a Ourense y que será el preludio del lanzamiento de un nuevo trabajo de estudio, pasados siete años de la publicación de 'Dear Heather'.

En la ciudad de As Burgas, el cantautor repasará los temas de 'Live in London', grabado en directo y que supone un recorrido por los grandes temas que marcaron sus 40 años de carrera profesional.

El concierto, que será el único que Cohen ofrezca en España, se produce sólo dos días antes de que salga al mercado su último trabajo, 'Songs from the Road'; al mismo piensa asistir el conselleiro de Cultura, Roberto Varela.

Está previsto que Cohen se desplace unas horas antes a la ciudad de As Burgas, aunque ni la productora que gestiona el concierto ni tampoco la Consellería han querido precisar detalles a este diario, limitándose a asegurar que su llegada será discreta y que ni siquiera concederá entrevistas.

Leonard Cohen will perform to 4,000 people in the Paco Paz
Some 3,900 people attended the concert today in Ourense Canadian musician Leonard Cohen , part of the programming designed for the Way of Music in 2010 and whose Xacobeo sold out on Wednesday.

The pavilion will open Paco Paz at 19.30 , according to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in a statement that notes that the concert will start at 21.00 .

Since its comeback in 2008 , the artist , just ten days of his 76th birthday , has offered about 200 concerts worldwide .

Currently , Cohen is immersed in a European tour that takes you to Ourense Sunday and will be the prelude to the launch of a new studio work , seven years of the publication of 'Dear Heather '.

As in the city of Burgas , the singer will review the themes of ' Live in London ' , recorded live and that is a tour of the major themes that marked his 40 year career .

The concert, which will be the only one that Cohen offers in Spain, comes only two days before it's released his latest work, 'Songs from the Road ' , at the same plan to attend the Regional Minister of Culture, Roberto Varela.

Cohen is scheduled to move a few hours before As the city of Burgas , although neither the concert production company that manages the Department nor the precise details have wanted this newspaper , but merely to ensure that his arrival will be discreet and not even granted interviews .

Leonard Cohen, escala peregrina
ourense pic.jpg
El autor de Suzanne' celebró ayer en Ourense su único concierto en España.RosA VEIGA

Zen on stage, Leonard Cohen, dark suit and hat, picking off yesterday in Ourense songs that have made his voice and style in legend, beginning with Dancing to the end of love. Knee on the ground in much of his repertoire, started cheering with each of his classics, demonstrating their communion with the micro and accompanied by a female chorus of three voices and a group of musicians, who squandered his show intimate quality.

Ourense is the only concert of this tour that has occurred in Spain

And is that in a concert of this poet and novelist no place to strong emotions, except to miles to see it, without having to enter the hand (a problem suffered some who had purchased entry associates) as the capacity for 4,000 people was sold in advance. And so seats, a majority or even gray hair who was allowed to attend the concert with babies, without fear that a cry broke the cadence of the concert.

On the eve of his latest album sees the light after almost seven years and a few days of his seventy-sixth anniversary, meeting on the 21, Cohen went on a tour Ourense endless and so necessary to him as desired by stalwarts. It will be, yes, his only concert in Spain.

And surely among his supporters last night there were many identified the need to remake yet another setback after the embezzlement sentimental accompanied by personal economics.

It was an intimate show with a repertoire of legends

A novice might think that age has an impact on the Canadian musician, but actually gives the impression that he would not know it otherwise. His voice aged for personal experiences and scars the soul, deep and penetrating, sculpted with every low note the walls of the venue chosen for the occasion: a sports field that once lived successes glory of a CBA team, like yesterday welcomed the magic one of the living legends of contemporary music.

Ten to fifteen years are many successes and frustrations in and off the stage and perhaps a combination of musical and personal existentialism, which appeals courts under their thousands of fans around the world, identified with his poems to music. While at the concert last night, which was part of the Road Music Xacobeo, there was no place either for sorrow or for depression.

Here we had the privilege of hearing some of the compositions that will shape his next album, Songs from the road, stuffed full of constant eye to the past and influences supported by Cohen himself, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Van Morrison and Judy Collins. The audience stood up and at the end of the first part. And a comment was repeated: "Grandpa is great."

Goes on sale today their latest album, Songs from the road '

His immediate horizon ends in Las Vegas on December 11 after a pilgrimage from here takes you to France, Germany, Russia, Australia or New Zealand, among others. And if sarcasm and Ourense retranca were in hand, do not forget that Las Vegas was the Termini station to legends such as Elvis or Sinatra.

OURENSE - 09.13.2010
They spent nine minutes in the afternoon when the lights of the big track two sports Pazo Paco Paz and the musicians came on stage. Behind, Leonard Cohen, running at the speed of a great man of 75 years of age. There is then the apotheosis of applause from the nearly four thousand followers from all over Spain, do not want to miss the Canadian endearing voice hoarse, sometimes torn.

He began, like last year in Madrid with 'Dance Me to the End of Love' and so continued for nearly four hours, only interrupted by a break of twenty minutes), we must remember that its recent performance Lisbon spent three hours in duration.

With the end of every song there was a flood of long and warm applause, shouts of enthusiasm of a devoted audience with a memorable performance, also of the 'monk' busdista, nicknamed "The Quiet, with its timeless black suit and matching hat.

Three showgirls enriched his performance and even surprised when, in the middle of a song, two of them made a pirouette, gymnastics and went on singing, as usual.

COLLAPSE IN THE PAZO

The Pazo Paco Paz doors were opened two hours earlier, but even then there were long queues to get inside. It was a unique opportunity, historical, to enjoy an unforgettable singer, as it were.

And among the thousands of attendees, many politicians, as is natural in this type of events, beginning with the president of the Xunta, Núñez Feijoo, or the chairman of the Regional Government, José Luis Baltar, with his wife, Alicia Blanco, or Parliament vice president, Baltar Blanco, next to Feijóo. Nearby, the Regional Minister of Culture, Roberto Varela. Cidrás Ignacio Santos, manager of Xacobeo; Camilo Ocampo, sub-delegate of the Government, and Isabel Pérez, Councillor for Culture of Ourense, did not miss even one song. So to add tens of conocidadspero faces, especially in anonymous public, Cohen enthusiastic about a more natural than ever
