lover lover lover It is official, Kingston was the wildcard hot ticket of this tour. Chelsea Hotel, La Manic, and the second set is still going strong.

@StellarJana The Leonard Cohen crowd is interesting; a lot of Mom Dates. And a standing ovation as he walked on stage. #ygk #cohenygk

Lover, lover, lover!

Another great night. Thanks to Cate for organizing the "I'm your Man" dinner!

A more subdued and grayer crowd than my two previous concerts, but they got into it by the end.

Highlights for me were: Lover, Lover, Lover and LC performing Chelsea Hotel alone, just the man and his guitar. And La Manic. He took some time with the anglo audience in Kingston and explained a bit of the history of the Manic Hydro electric building project. He translated the first sentence for the audience: "If you knew just what a drag it is to be here at La Manic, you'd write to me more often." I wonder if we might hear the translated version at some point?

Missing from the set list was Heart with No Companion and The Partisan. Plus in encores he skipped I Tried to Leave You and ended with Save the Last Dance for Me.

My 8 year old daughter was pretty exhausted by the end, but I think she enjoyed it. She was able to get Javier's set list, two pages long in extra large font. A pretty good souvenir from her first ever concert! Not surprisingly for a little girl perhaps she just loved the Webb Sisters. And the violin. And LC made her laugh out loud a couple of times.

A great night.

What a lovely review Paula. I'm so glad your daughter entyed the show and has her special souvenir.

I wonder what Leonard has in mind for his US audiences. I suspect we have heard
The last of La Manic, for this tour at least.

I'm not sure that this relates to Kingston - but was a tweet from last night

@LauraCalder - My editor gave me these handkerchiefs for Christmas. She got them for free...at a Leonard Cohen concert. pic.twitter.com/cpjeXPot

@stargonenova - There are no words for how amazing Leonard Cohen was last night. Once in a lifetime experience.
@billmilliken Recovering from Leonard Cohen. That old man kept me up way past my bedtime. What a performance!
@billmilliken good man that Leonard Cohen! Last of the great Canadian poets!
@foodiePrints He is a great poet. Every musician on stage was as great in their way. What a combination!

Lover, Lover, Lover was a complete surprise. The arrangement was very different than the last tour, more upbeat. Yes Lisa, I hope someone managed to record it. I also hope someone captured Darkness. During Rafael' s drum solo Leonard was kind of chanting. I got the impresssion it was a bit of shared joke with Rafael!
