I have been at both types of concerts, and the exhuberant ones by far outweigh the 'reverential' sssh kind of ones. Not because it is better for the audience, but because of what I've seen happening onstage.
Neither extreme appeals to me. When I talk about the 'best' concerts, these were the ones where the exhuberance was there, but there was that proverbial 'you could hear a pin drop' at all the right moments also. The performers were treated with the utmost respect and given the proper credit. No brutish behavior please.

The accompnaying music is by Monsieur Camembert, featuring the vocals of Elana Stone. This is a trial video clip using the wonderful Pinnacles Movie Maker programme Ann just bought me as a gift - she watched me struggle (as everybody does with the infuriating, terrible Windows Movie Maker), which crashes every half hour or so. Anyhow, I will no doubt make a far better clip of all these, once I get to know the programme, meanwhile, if like me, you're a Cohen fan, sit back and look at the album.

this is my thrid attempt (I've deleted the other two), I hope it brings joy to all - those who were there and all Cohenites around the globe.
The music is from a Boo... shhhh! recording of the Cologne concert, 1st July 2009.
