Leonka...you are so lovely! For over a year or more I have loved your posts...your enthusiasm...your love of Leonard! You have made me cry and laugh and smile for hours! Now we also have Gallina! Thank you so much, both beautiful ladies, your words have touched my heart and slightly broken it. I can feel deep within your emotions at this time. I think it will be very difficult for me in Las Vegas. Let's keep strong and believe that perhaps, god-willing, our wonderful Leonard will once again do a tour after the release of the new album.

My love to both of you.....

Diana

ps...Arlene is so right....Leonka, you DO rock!

This has been the most exciting and so filled with joy thread!!!! I'm at the end and then I realize I have been sitting here with a grin from ear to ear the whole time - my face hurts. All you ladies with your reviews, comments, links have provided me with the most pleasant feelings. Thank you over and over again!

Even the oh so accurate google translations did not dampen my spirits - they simply enhanced them. Thank goodness we know a bit about LC's life and this tour. But, when did he become royalty? And I can't figure out how 'Baron Cohen' has had 'a break for 54 years'? :lol:

Now ladies, I saw a photo of LC with two of you, and then photos of some of you with band members. Please, may we have the stories that went with the experiences?

I love, love, love this thread - thank you all again!

Warmest regards,
Mary

I love what you wrote! You so beautifully captured the extraordinary experience that many of us have shared during this tour.

Link to a wonderful article in today's newspaper:

Today, 11:33

The only requirement Cohen was secured by a security guard, and by, information,new time will go before the concert, take a walk on the hill in Koliba-Bratislava.

Leonard Cohen in Bratislava: Before the concert, the happily smiling>>

To walk before you can meet the legend! The acclaimed Canadian singer Leonard Cohen played the day before yesterday its second concert in Bratislava.
And in his case is confirmed - the bigger the star, the smaller the mannerisms.

Leonard Cohen played on Wednesday evening 3-hour concert, his feet nearly 4-thousand spectators in the hall NTC. Concert of the legendary singer will not miss even the Prime Minister Iveta Radičová ,and MinisterJan Figel. After Cohen to add half an hour and only, he only-only night flight from Vienna airport.

"Slovak organizers have received from his team's requirement that Mr. Cohen wants to see before the concert to Koliba," the source of a New Time.
Although the Cohen enjoyed a visit to Slovakia, sheep cheese and other typical specialties, not tasted . Since it is a convinced Buddhist, brought with them their own chef. "He enthused Bratislava, I would still back here," said the organizers Vladimir Kroupa.
Leonard says, there that would like to Slovakia to return.
But as a tourist on vacation? Or ........ :shock: 8) :razz: :razz:

Hello Arlene and ladydi,

my gosh, :shock: I can not be me, personally. So with that I have not counted, phew.
Otherwise I am quite shy, man, preferring to hold in the background, not to be too forward.. Geez, the showcase will definitely retouched :shock: :D . Here in the cafeteria it was still cool, but as we came in with SuzanneT Sibamac Arena, so there it started to warm up. My face was red as a traffic light. :lol:

That, I have to sing? But at home it still is it could still listen to even look at a poster ..... and now it would be a small concert. 8)

Would start like this:

............ Ah, the moon's too bright
The chain's too tight
The beast will not go to sleep
I've been running through these promises to you
That i made and i could not keep
Ah but a man never got a woman back
Not by begging on his knees
Or I'd crawl to you baby
And I'd fall at your feet
And I'd howl at your beauty
Like a dog in heat
And I'd claw at your heart
And I'd tear at your sheet
I'd say please, please
I'm your man

Or will all the mice run away,because it can not listen. ;-)
