I'm almost as old as Leonard. Does that count? All you that are going to Venice, I am so glad for you, enjoy, and I hope you have beautiful weather!

The ticket office may have issued some more - they are flexible with the rows! Ask them.

Oh come on, Jarkko, don't try to fool us... Better tell us where to get one of those Cardboard Cohens and how much it is... ;-)

Hi everyone, being in Venice yesterday it has been like to be in a fairy tale, the weather was orrible when we got to Venice, a strong thunderstorm, a bunch of water that stopped something like 30 minutes before the beginning, then more then two and a half hours of music.

meraviglioso.
