Magnificent.

and, um, what does he add at 2:22? Not some _______ of a pilgrim who has seen the light.

Some "post"? Post of a pilgrim? As in, a forum post? A Facebook post? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Good catch Esther.
I guess it is "not some boast of a pilgrim" as Citizen_Kane suggests.
But "post" could work too. :lol:

A passionate Leonard Cohen - and passionate Neil Larson too. :D :D :D

just4keks: Wow front row? That would of hurt your neck!
I sat in the 13th row. Great seats! I have also posted my Hallelujah video up :)

Kennsysmith: @just4keks Hi there, yeah, i was lucky enough to be front row.
The view wasn't that steep, it was just that i had my camera sitting in my lap!
:lol:



Great video, slower version than usual I think.

I had the good fortune to sit front row and dead centre on Monday night.

And with the security guys permission was able to grab a few snaps during the second set.

I have seen Len 3 times now and all the shows are special, as we all know, but Mondays audience made it just that little bit better.

I dont know how to upload here so here is a link to a few shots.

Hope it works.

Absolutely brilliant photos.
Last Monday night was my 3rd time seeing Len too!
All his shows are indeed special but maybe front row seats rather than the audience made it more so for you this time ;-) .

Thanks again for sharing the photos.

Nice job, Mikeaus. Terrific video!

I Iove your shots of the audience cheering and standing ovation.
Nice side angle perspective of the whole stage.

Thank you for posting your excellent video.

Dear friends,

Oh what oh what oh what a show it was! :D

Thanks, sturgess66. You're fast!

I've just posted a close-up video of LC performing "A Singer Must Die". Not quite albertnoonan quality, but decent enough:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuFnq28AS6I

"Sir, I didn't see nothing, I was just getting home late"
"And save me a place in a twelve-dollar grave" - LC must have taken into account the strength of the Australian dollar :lol:

There are so many admirable reviews of both concerts, so I'll just contribute a few pictures to further colour this thread...


Image
An impressive line-up at the Acer Arena, to be sure. But I'd swap all the shows for the one on the second row ;-)


Image
I just had to take a photo of the banner.


Image
In eager anticipation... actually, Neil Larsen appeared for awhile to make some adjustments to the keyboard and Hammond. Didn't snap that, though.


LC gave it his all, as usual. But I was particularly taken with the performance of "Born In Chains". I thought the solos by the Sharon Robinson and the Webb Sisters had never contrasted so beautifully with LC's trademark gravelly voice. Anyone with me on this?

P.S. Read about how Hattie Webb paralysed me here:

OH MY!!!! Thanks for the video Lester. I love the movies!!! And what a song/performance!
And thanks for the colour you added to the thread!

I think you should sign Hattie's card and tell her - how she paralysed you!

Of course, you will have to give proper greetings to Charley too - since it is a combined card. But - actually - you could do separate messages to each.
Oh dear - I've started rambling here. :lol: :lol: :lol:

BUT - OH MY!!! Again!!

I don't think you posted a link to this - beautiful - THANK YOU!

Thanks for the kind words, sturgess66. Thanks also for posting the URL to my "A Thousand Kisses Deep" video, too. Like I said - you're fast!

Had some trouble uploading my videos to YouTube, this being my first time. Anyway, these are the videos I've uploaded, for easy reference.

Webb Sisters doing cartwheels:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7orqgdPcWGA

A Singer Must Die:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuFnq28AS6I

A Thousand Kisses Deep:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hwfMsee0RM

I resisted the urge to record more than three songs - wanted to truly savour every note of the others.

I'll say it for the last time - WHAT A CONCERT IT WAS :D
