hello andrea

the memories came flooding back this afternoon as i walked past the imagina bar in the campo st margherita ...remember back in 2009 when you organised the meet-up in 'the flying dutchman' then organised the massive down-pour of rain while were all still sitting outside enjoying our drinks and each other's company...even tom sakic managed to produce an umbrella from somewhere to shelter himself from the rain...then remember how you organised the rain to stop just before the concert started....then that mad dash after the concert over the academia bridge thru the back cracks and alley ways of venice to the imagina bar in campo st. margherita ...i think we lost a few folk on the way but i know that as usual our fearless and indomitable leader jarkko made it thru the night to sup a few last drinks with us all...

happy days and happy (very late) nights

a big thanks again from me to you and jarkko for enabling us all to come together again in such happy circumstances...ta ken

imagina bar campo st margherita 20.09.2012 and not a cohenist in sight....

Hi Andrea,
Thanks for all your hard work in organising this meet-up. Unfortunately I didn't register in time to join in with everything but hope to be able to catch up with forum members at the pre and post concert venues. Looking forward to a fabulous evening on Monday.

Hi Andrea

I didn't sign up either but hope to go to the pre or post concert meet ups.
As the weather forecast is unfortunately for rain on Monday, will the concert still go ahead? Also I have read that you need to take something to sit on, I am row 7 in the front stalls, is that the cae? Also, are you allowed to take food and drink into the arena (obviously to be consumed before the concert or during the interval?
Many thanks.
Enjoy the concert everyone, I can't wait, saw him on this tour in Ghent and London and he was awesome, I think even better than the last tour (if that's possible)!
Jackie

Hi, The weather forecast is changing every day, so it is surely not the final forecast and I am still trustworthy that it will not rain :oops:

Until yesterday it was always good weather on the preview...

I doubt that eating and drinking will be allowed. Times have changed it Italy :-(
It is even forbidden in Verona to eat on the street or on benches in the centre or on the steps in the city.
Mind the fine....(penality) they are quite severe in Verona.

See you
Andrea

...i opened an old venice guide book this morning and this ticket fell out.. i'm usually not one for the occult or the supernatural but i have taken this to be an omen for good weather in verona...so despite paul slitting the throats of dozens of his sacrifical chickens in zagreb doing his best to invoke heavy and persistent rain for the concert we can all now relax as leonard's ticket from 2009 has appeared from seemingly nowhere and has spoken to us...

...btw if it does rain we will know who to blame won't we....ta ken

tom...i hope the weather is in our favour for monday...but after being in dublin and suffering two of the worse behaved and disrespectful audiences at an LC concerts i've ever attended the weather is the least of my worries...and come rain or shine we will always have sharon singing 'alexandra leaving' for us which i personally would suffer whatever the elements decide to throw at us on monday....ta ken
