Leonard has something to get off his chest and I am so glad that he did get the Fu*k back to Canada so we could hear this....

Rafael gets a special intro also and I cant say I have ever met a "broken vegetarian"...maybe in Vegas.....

enjoy.

What a magnificent concert last night in Vancouver. Dear Leonard – one who truly represents so many things to us all. The kid with a crazy dream, wearing no disguises in the dark.

Throughout his entire narrative he exudes such a powerful presence, and in the context of ‘no disguises in the dark', he casts his shadow, complete with crooked smile, somewhere behind the smoke of all distinctions where he’s made his home. He has become the embodiment of everything he so eloquently speaks of within the realms of a most humbling dialogue, and just when we think he's left no stone unturned, he starts in again, generously contributing a little something more to the total masterpiece of all that he is – one who is at peace, accepting of his contradictions.

We witness with intensity, the way he presents his
words, within the inspiriting invitation of his song,
that makes tangible each word's poverty, so humbly
presented by the master – their echo, simply sublime.

I loved being part of such a large crowd at Rogers Arena. The concert was spectacular. Leonard did have a few flubs (yes, I heard that, too in "The Partisan"), but he made up with it with a strong performance. There was far more banter than the Victoria concert. I have to say that I was disappointed that the set list was EXACTLY the same as it was in Victoria, but I can see why they can't deviate from it just to make us island hoppers happy.
The crowd was just loving and languishing everything Leonard -- truly a memorable evening.

This video is priceless! Well done, Mar.

As I have said before, you must have taught Albert everything he knows about videography.

Mar that was absolutely fabulous! You learned well from the Master your loving husband Sir Albert and you did an perfect job.
Thanks for saving those memories! You have such a steady hand and good eye of what to film.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank You!

Now I can finally say Irish Mar was there with me in Victoria and Vancouver.
When we all heard about Victoria being added to the concert tour I was talking with Albert and Marie asking if they would come.
I said I would have my car and would take them sightseeing and hang out with them during that time.
They were so good to me when I was in Dublin and Sligo that I wanted to be able to do the same for them.
I didn't think it would happen but then Albert's Gypsy Wife my dear friend Marie was able to come.
Needless to say we just spent the last 5 days having a blast, sightseeing, shopping, meeting my family and seeing 2 concerts together. (Best part)
I am looking forward to seeing the other videos people have put up...just arrived home and wish I was back at the concert last night.
Having these videos really is great for everyone as it takes us all there from all over the world.
Again I have to say the wild response Leonard recieved last night in my eyes touched him so deeply that he seemed to love it and let go all that much more in the concert. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw him kneeling twice and the extra dance moves and words that he sang at times...
He seemed to respond to the energy of the crowds...and that is a blessing....
Cheers!

So emotional watching this, Marie. Thank you as deeply as I can go for capturing this for us.
This is what I wrote there, Marie... and am bringing it here.

Thank you.



Love,
Lizzy

Not being able to attend the Vancouver concert myself, I sent special envoy.. "Gypsy Wife"... (aka Irishmar) with strict instructions..."whatever you get, make it good".

What a magnificent video! Thank You.

Only problem is, I've downloaded a bunch (mostly your's Albert :) ) from youtube, joined them all together and put them on the iPad for the flight over from Oz, now I have to do it again and add that one!

Thank you so much Marie and Albert for capturing this knockout confession and the song and the unique introductions. A pleasure to watch this and in such a good quality! Thank you.

Coming late in to this thread, with great smile smeared on my face at this vid, all that comes to mind is:
Thank god for Ireland: for the beauty of the country, for fine hospitality, for the best crowd in the world and the most outstanding videographers.
I could not have guessed it wasn't Albert's steady hand that took this vid. Marie, you gain an instant master title and you sure are a trooper to cross the pond twice in 2 weeks :-)
thanks so much for this beautiful piece!

This is another one from "BILLIEMARGARET" - and it's terrific :D :D
Leonard looks like he is having a great time!
