Help needed with old tour dates

Postby Maarten » Sat Sep 27, 2008 12:05 am

Hi guys,

I hope someone can help me out on this one...
I've got an old concert poster of one of Leonard's concerts, but I can't seem to put an exact year on it. The poster says

The Poet of Rock Music
Leonard Cohen

Montag 21. November
Dienstag 22. November

Circus Krone
München

So I thought it would be easy to search for the exact year in the Tour Section of the Files, but couldn't find a match there...
Then I checked the Leonard Cohen Live pages, but without any luck...
Finally I looked up in which year(s) November 21 was a Monday. Since the poster has the cover of the "Greatest Hits" album (1975) on it, I started in 1974. This came out:
November 21, 1977: Monday! (no Cohen tour that year...)
November 21, 1983: Monday! (no Cohen tour that year...)
November 21, 1988: Monday! (tour between April and July...)
November 21, 1994: Monday! (no Cohen tour that year...)
November 21, 2005: Monday! (no Cohen tour that year...)
November 21, 2011: Monday! (hopefully another tour...)

So what happened here???
I think my poster is an original. It's about 80x60cm I guess and I've got a similar one which says "Jahrhunderthalle, Frankfurt, April 25". I looked it up and that must be from 1976. I guess the mysterious poster if from about the same time.

Were there ever any plans of Cohen doing a tour including Germany around November 1975 or 1976 that were cancelled? Or is my poster fake (which I doubt).

HELP!

Below is a picture of the Mystery Poster as I like to call it these days...

The poster can also be seen at Jarkko's site:
http://leonardcohenfiles.com/posters.html

At the bottom of the page, it's referred to as "Germany 197X"
Mmmm... if even Jarkko doesn't know...

Anyone who thinks he's smarter than Jarkko, when it comes to LC?
