To those fortunate enough to be at the final Vegas show,

Know that I'm green as a grasshopper dipped in emerald dye :mrgreen:

I'll be waiting for the videos :D

if someone from the board wants to meet me in front of the Colosseum tonight, I can give them a USB drive with last nights show on it. I haven't burned it to cd, and really have no idea when that will be as I'm busy with school and such. But if someone wants the raw files on a thumb drive I can give it to them tonight. Maybe you can get it to other board members. Let me know. I'm taping tonights show as well. I got lucky last night, I was in the 2nd level mezzanine and was around a quiet group. I'm hoping for the same tonight. I'm on facebook-luke freteluco, i'm the only one in existence, so I'm easy to find.

Thanks for the pictures Maarten.

And thanks for the videos Albert.

And - has anyone yet figured out what Leonard is saying/yelling - off mic - at 4:27 in Albert's video?
I know he has been doing this regularly in this song for a while now - but so far "nobody knows?" :lol: :lol:
Well - except Leonard and UHTC - both Roscoe and Rafael seem to be laughing in the video.

Tour Merchandise: Bringing The Vegas Experience To The World :-)

Sadly, I am not in Vegas.

I'm in Adelaide.

But ... at least while I am stuck here, far away from where it's all happening ... I can at least *dress* the part (while I read all your upcoming detailed forum and blog reports about the final concert).

Thank you, merch.

Now if only there had been a commemorative Leonard Cohen World Tour 2010 Elvis-Style White Jumpsuit, my Vegas wardrobe would be complete :-)

Sorry, this is not really a concert report as such but I wanted to share this with someone. My husband just sent me the following e-mail:

This came to me during the RR* show. In many ways I wish it hadn't, and i hope this sort of thing doesn't happen again. But as it has made an appearance, I thought I would share it with you for a laugh. Please feel free to nudge it gently into the delete box.

And so to Las Vegas, a celebration, not a wake;
Three great years of music you never thought he'd make.
You said you'd cross the world for him; and no one's had your sweep
Be glad for all the times you've had, a thousand kisses deep!

Enjoy the show as best you can, and i'll be here afterwards if you need me. (forget the phone bill)!!!


OMG - I'm already in tears already and I haven't even left my room for the show yet.

Wendy


*Runrig - a Scottish Celtic Rock band & where I was due to be tonight until Leonard interfered with my plans ... hopefully not for the last time.

I want to see how far Wendy's jaw drops when LC uses these lines as part of his poetry recital tonight (replacing "he" with "I" obviously) :-) :lol:
