Good thing about sensationalist media, such as some here in Croatia, is that they quickly move on to more "yellow" topics. For them Leonard was interesting for as long as photo of his arrival was not posted on all news sites. There and then sensation died and they moved on to their "yellower" pastures. Hopefully they remain there.

Leonard Cohen jets in for Croatia holiday
21 July 2010

Leonard Cohen is spending a few days in accommodation in Croatia ahead of an upcoming concert.

The veteran Canadian singer will perform at Arena Hall in Zagreb on Sunday (July 25th) and intends to fit in a dress rehearsal beforehand, the Croatian Times reports Gloria magazine as stating.

Cohen only recently returned to touring following a lengthy spell as a Buddhist - a move that may have delighted his fans.

Some of his top hits include So Long, Marianne, Sisters of Mercy and Hallelujah, all of which he could belt out in the Croatian capital at the weekend.

But before that the performer may be putting his feet up in a Croatian villa or exploring the historic streets of Zagreb.

Cohen is not the first famous face to be spotted in Croatia in 2010, with Eva Longoria and husband Tony Parker recently enjoying a break in the country and actor Gerard Butler spending time in Dubrovnik earlier this summer.

next thing you know they'll be using "famous faces" for promotion even if they (faces) do not even land here... "Recently famous Hollywood actor Jack Nicholson flew over XY country on his way to vacation in China. Make sure to visit our hotel from which you can see celebs flying overhead!"

Leonard Cohen arrived in Zagreb yesterday (Tues), five days before his concert at the Arena venue in Croatia’s capital. He will hold a dress rehearsal on Friday, 23 July.The Canadian singer-songwriter has been inspiring generations with his numerous hits that include "So Long, Marianne," "Sisters of Mercy," "Suzanne," etc.In the mid-nineties he decided to leave the world of music and turn to Buddhism and meditation. But after his manager robbed him of practically all of his earnings, he decided to return to music and start touring again, the Croatian magazine Gloria writes.

We can confirm now that tomorrow in the LAV cafe gallery on the Stone Gate we can expect Sharon, Charley and Hattie, Rafael, Ed Sanders, some of the crew members and possibly others, everybody got an invitation. Their arrival cannot be 100% confirmed due to the schedule as preparations for the first show are due to start tomorrow at the venue in the late afternoon.

I think he's not meeting anybody, as his manager's announcement says, including Arsen or Ibrica Jusic or any local publisher or translator or musician... Even Bono couldn't went through when he tried to get backstage...

that's not fair.....surely leonard realises that saint bonehead has devoted his whole life trying to to save the world and that's all the thanks he gets

btw it's not very often a poor boy like me from liverpool gets the oppurtunity to put his bum on a phillipe starck chair so in case i'm not first through the door tomorrow night could you put a 'reserved' ticket on one for me please...

...did you sort out our nun's outfits for our sound of music tour in salzburg....i bet maarten has already got his belgian nun's outfit carefully ironed and packed..

Hi friends, COULD ANYBODY HELP ME? PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!!!

I can't go to the meeting Saturday evening as I will arrive just in Sunday afternoon, and I can't get my ticket from Tom. And he will be unavailable in Sunday!

Could anybody keep my ticket and give it me during the day or before the concert? It would be very important, I cant'imagine what could be happened if I would be in Zagreb but couldn't see Leonard.......I am very nervous, please, help me!
