greetings to all-
My real name is also Denise- and LOL, funny, I, too, am a DeadHead.
My husband is the big Leonard Cohen fan in our family, although I do really appreciate and cherish his music. Since I go to many many shows without him, (RatDog) I thought that this show would be a great present for him!
We are making a day of it. Coming in from CT early in the day. Then having an early dinner before the show.
I'm also really looking forward to seeing the renovated Beacon Theater.
See you all there :D

Hello to All, I am (relatively) new to this forum and wanted to say how thrilled I am to be finally seeing Leonard..My best friend is coming to the concert with me from Toronto - she and I spent half of our lives in South America and the caribbean and as teenagers we often could be found enjoying and deciphering her worn out album 'Songs of Love and Hate'. Isn't it amazing how widespread his music is?
I now live in NJ, but we are planning to spend the night in NYC, this way we can enjoy the post concert get together. We're both sooo excited -it's our first LC concert - and we really look forward to meeting some of you. Feel free to email me if you'd like to say hello...
The best to you all!

Like some others, I'm relatively new to posting in this forum, but I'm neither a new visitor to this wonderful site nor to Leonard's work.

What I am new to, however, is seeing Cohen in concert, which I'm thrilled to be doing for the first time on Thursday night. I'm flying in from Florida, staying in Midtown for a couple days to enjoy the city (which I have visited a few times in recent years). I look forward to spending the evening with 2,800 people who appreciate Leonard's music and work as much as I do.

Hey DPG1976 ~

Welcome from another [sorta] Floridian. You're going to find yourself in awe come Thursday night. Leonard is truly awesome. I'm so glad that so many world over are getting the opportunity to see him in person. As someone has already said, I'm especially glad for Leonard's being able to directly experience the love of so many that has been there so long for him. For him to see for absolutely, positively sure how deeply he is loved and respected worldwide. I'm so glad, so grateful. You'll see what I mean.

and Lizzy....I'm probably going to have to carry a box of tissues...think I may be crying a lot ;-)

That's how I spent the beginning of the intermission on Leonard's first night in Montreal... didn't think to bring kleenex, though. At least you're looking ahead and being practical :) .

Awww, Iris. I'm sorry you'll be there only in spirit, but glad for at least that.

Hey, Box of Rain, with the unique, concept name... looking forward to meeting you. Who the heck will know who anybody is, of course... name tags, anyone ;-) ?

For anyone not going to the reception, or if you are alone and looking to walk with someone to the post party, or if you are so inclined...maybe we could still meet up/linger for a while in front of the stage after the show...that might also be a another spot to say hello.

So excited!

I'll be wearing a purple and red feather boa, my blouse has beads and tassles, believe it or not...kind of embarassing but...it's beautiful and a special occassion so I will do my best! Might be easy to spot! Hope to meet you!
