I can really relate to what you're saying Tom. I find myself emotionally so invigorated yet worn down at the same time after these unforgettable experiences, that I cannot listen to LC for a while. If I do I am afraid for my emotional stability, and if I don't I am afraid to lose it too. There really is no way about it, but to attend more concerts if it is possible.

No, that's us, Forum members and Croatian fans, in first row! Big THANK YOU to Mr. Mladen (Siple Events agency) for giving us best seats even until the last week!

I would like to support Tomsakic in his thanks to Mr Mladen and Simple Events for the seats we were given. :D Attending this concert was a surprise birthday gift for my husband. So front row seats in front of Javier Mas were beyond anything I could have hoped for - my husband could hardly believe it. :D :D :D

The concert was fabulous - Mr C was having a lot of fun with the band, even serenading in Spanish :D We have not been to a concert since last year - is it possible, but is Mr Cohen's voice even better???!!!!

Ljubljana is a beautiful city, with lovely people - we felt very welcome. I hope to return for another visit one day.

Another very happy fan........Jen

In their texts, the Bible deals with such topics as human relations to a completely real and not very romantic point of view, but still with vedrostjo and faith in the wonder of human appearance. The concert was almost sold out. Ljubljana audience's love might (also) be because of his never depleted and regularly celebrated charm, boundless creative fitness indispensable praise of accompanying singers, a variety of instrumental support, tireless more than two hours of concert performances, all together, and yet something else. All of this has been well received audience at last night concert.

Debt concert in two parts has brought his many hits and some new ones in typical Cohenesqe refined interpretation. Visitors are captivated concert with his voice.

I wrote this after meeting majmunka in the Graz topic:
"In Zagreb I recognized Tom from all the pictures posted here on the forum and wanted to go and say hi, but somehow I felt a bit out of place there - maybe I will do it in Ljubljana"
so Tom - I hope you did not mind... :)
Here are some pics from the concert in Ljubljana:
