I'd like to believe this is to mean that Leonard will be releasing another DVD / Blu-Ray of select live performances. More Songs From the Road?? :D

If you're referring to the cameraman in the left corner, that's one of two cameramen recording the show live for the screens of the venue (there are also many automatic cameras on stage). The whole show is broadcasted live as it happens on big screens left and right of the stage, online directing is done by Ed Sanders in every show (except for the small venues).

AAAAAHHHHH Albert! You are back with a vengeance :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D There are not enough smilie faces (sorry Ken) to show you how I feel about your videos and this one in particular because of the patter before 'Save the Last Dance For Me' and in particular because of 'Save the Last..'. He seems to so enjoy doing it!
Thank you Albert - Marie, make Albert take you to ALL the shows!

I have been trying to not watch too many of the great videos that are being posted--I want the surprise of seeing it all for myself for the first time in Verona. I did watch this one tho and WOW! What a great atmosphere and crowd. And Leonard's laughter in response to it all :-) So excited to be a part of it all. I love this forum!

A really fine review of Aug 21 concert @ VP Music Blog:

Leonard Cohen - 5 lessons from the master

In brief:

1. There is something in the water at the old people’s home;
2. They just don’t make fans like they used to;
3. If you’re going to sing into your 70’s, make it deep;
4. Maybe I should start reading poetry:
5. Become a member of a fan club;

The fan club mentioned is, surely, our forum.
Having read quite a lot of discussions on his fan page (see point 5 below), I am also both impressed and slightly amused that his fans tend to refer to him as Mr. Cohen. What a fantastic show of respect for this legend. There cannot be many people in the music industry that can pull that off.
