Hi Albert. Did you (or anyone else for that matter!) get any video of the crowd singing happy birthday to Leonard?

It was a Night, that never will be forgotten!
it was just outstanding; it blew me away! Even before the Show starts, I had my first two personal Highlights: I met O.B. from Berlin and K.R.: it was my pleasure to meet you, Misters!!
And the second thing was so obviously: the Audience was superb, you can feel it right from the beginning of the Concert... thank you, People of Amsterdam!
Leonard was in a very happy mood, smiles a lot, kneeling and moving and stomping... great to see him in such a great shape! We all heard exactly, what he says about "coming back".... but: he don't say, that this will not comes to reality... we have to wait and see; only Time will give us the answer..... But if this really was the last gig in Europe: we all can say, that it was fullfilling all the expectations wildly (that's my conclusion).
The UHTC and all the Crew-Members was absolutely perfect too: it seems to me, that everybody up on the Stage have had some Fun too, surely it looks that way!
It was a brilliant evening in Amsterdam! Will never Forget, how it was, when Leonard stood on a Stage for the last Time in Europe.... in 2013, I hope.
But: we never know!
And it was the perfect Way to say goodbye, even when it was hard (I think, for the Fans and for the Crew: everybody feel, that it was a Special Night).
And the "little Secret" was a real surprise: the new Song "I got a Little Secret" was played in a different Way: it sounded so perfect!! I really do hope, that something will coming out; this MUST be on a live-DVD!
I really want to thank, of course, Leonard Cohen, Sharon, Charley, Hattie (I hope, the cold is getting better!!), Alexandru, Javier, Neil, Mitch, Rafael and Roscoe and all the People, who make the Show possible! Thank you! It was just GREAT!!
We sure will do miss you in the Stages around Europe!
Mr. Cohen, you will alway have your loyal Fans here... If you like to go up on the Stages in Europe: we will be there, that is for sure....
You all have given us so much the last 5 Years: just thank you for this hard Work!
We will waiting and listen to your records.... and sometimes, we will look at the Tour-Pictures, seeing the life-YOUTUBE-Clips and dreaming, that we will meet again!
Thanks, it was a pleasure and we all have learned something in the last Years with your Concerts!!

I have posted some photo's on Facebook. I am especially proud of one photo, taken during 'First we take Manhattan." Someone threw, right on cua, a toy monkey on stage. I have captured Leonard, holding the monkey, while singing!

I love you for capturing that photograph! I got it for Leonard in Cape Town, South Africa - at a point that I was not even sure that I would attend the concert.

Thank you!
