Hi everybody,

It's been a while since the 4th of july, going to Montreux was very nice its a beautifull place to travel to and the weather was fine.
About the venue, as said before, was quite hot inside the hall, al least for the ones standing, very close one another, in fact i felt dizzy and i had to leave when come healing untill anthem.
My opinion its that for several reasons, for the ones like me that have attendend as much as 8 concert till 2008, the magic is gone.
Mostlly because, thera are too many interruptions; the usuall ones, people coming late, people talking, but the trouble comes with the songs not sung by Cohen, the song from the new album, and take this waltz sungd on the second half by the girls, so its almost impossible to have a moving experience in such conditions. I rather have, as someone wrote before, a much shorter concert by Cohen playing guitar.
