In this one, Leonard actually moves across the stage quickly and then jogs in place while singing "I've been running through these promises..."
:D

Toronto did not disappoint.

I was soundly impressed by Leonard.
The Hanger became the most intimate venue ever!

Despite arriving from USA with just over an hour to spare,
I was reinvigorated and energized in no time.

They gave it all, and then some!Image
Thank You Leonard and co.

Or to shove some stuffed toy in the face of the poor woman beside you so you can get video of it in your hand. Maybe it's the Canadian curse of politeness that no one said anything at the time, but have a little common courtesy at future shows please.
I'll second that! - I had my own encounter with the 'monkey' woman at the end of the show - someone who travelled so far ;-) and has apparently seen him so many times should realize the class and politeness of the whole touring company right from the man himself to the crew. :idea:

I believe it was - he ended it with "Sincerely.....a friend" instead of the usual.

the concerts were absolutely fabulous! Was so lovely to see and feel his energy, mastery and playfulness.... along with his appreciation of and gratitude for his fellow incredibly talented artists!
Certainly concerts to remember! Thank you Leonard!

I don't remember him interjecting something like this before in this song. I'm IN LOVE with the way he says it. :lol: :lol: :lol: I think it's the inflection he puts on "what". So sassy!!

I enjoyed that too :D Also got a magical moment in this song the previous night when he sang "G-d damn mountain side". The last time I'd heard him use those words was in magical Lissadell.

Great photos Judy. I'm currently having my 1st look at my photos. Will post some later and then write my review for both Montreal and Toronto.
