Does anyone know about the band scheduled for the fall tour.
Let's hope the composition will be identical to the first leg

Thanks Jarkko for this wonderful and complete site.

As far as I know, we will see the same fine musicians on stage also in the autumn.

So we're not expecting the addition of a violin player?
We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be alright...

And what about the ladies ? I just wish we will enjoy these three marvellous artists as well.

..I guess the band will be exactly the same as in the summer, no less, no more. And of course with Sharon, Charley and Hattie.

Christine is not going to be in the band, the link on her site is old. There will be no violinist in the fall leg.

on the german homepage of munich-tickets, they have other musicians listed WITHOUT the 3 magnificant girls; take a look, I paste it here, what do you think about this?????

Auf seiner Herbsttour wird LEONARD COHEN von weltberühmten Musikern begleitet: Roscoe Beck (bass & vocals, music director) Neil Larsen (keyboard, accordion, brass instruments), Bob Metzger (guitar, steel guitar & vocals), Javier Mas (acoustic guitar, oud & misc. string instruments), Christine Wu (violin, viola, Cello & keyboard), Rafael Gayol, (drums & percussion) und Dino Soldo (keyboard, saxophon, wind instruments & vocals).

The German homepage probably categorizes as "musicians" only people who play instruments, and Sharon, Charley and Hattie are "vocalists". Well, Hatie plays also harp and Charley guitar... Anyway we will have all three ladies on stage also in the forthcoming leg of the tour!
