Quiet bunch I see- I have to bump my own thread. I see elements of old age and possibly Alzheimer's... constantly needing to be shown the place.

Very simple...Leonard has forgotten that there are other places in the U.K. apart from Hop Farm.

Yes John, perhaps we can show him the place where London is, plus Liverpool, and maybe a few other places in between.....

UK fans hold on tight only one in 2012 but this will be a long tour! ; )

Just a reminder what Rob Hallett posted on the Forum just over a month ago.

If it doesn't happen the way Rob says it will, then he is the one to have a grumble with ;-)


Rob Hallett is head of AEG in London, who are the international tour organizers
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2017 and fifty years later.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.
