Who will appear in the tribute concert?

Postby MaryB » Fri Sep 15, 2017 3:48 pm

While we are waiting patiently, I thought it might be fun to speculate as to who will participate in this Montreal concert - here are my thoughts;

All band members and backup singers, recent and past
Adam Cohen
Rufus Wainwright
k d lang
Judy Collins
Billy Joel
Jackson Browne
Susanne Vega
Bono
Willie Nelson
Tom Waits
Elton John
Don Henley
Peter Gabriel

I know I'm aiming high, but some of the above see highly possible - anyone else?

Perla won't be there unless she cancels her residency at the Cafe Central in Madrid (6-12 Nov).

My guesses would be the first 3 that Mary has mentioned plus Serena Ryder and Coeur de pirate. Maybe Steven Paige.

Perhaps there will be some readings as well.

Just imagine Leonard as a hologram on stage surrounded by all the band members of the last tour(s).

Dang it Wendy and Leslie,

I guess my search for tour dates wasn't thorough :oops: I didn't even check Perla's tour dates 'cause I wrongly thought she would be a given :( I went back and looked up Rufus again and still couldn't find tour dates for him around the time of the concert - please enlighten me Leslie. Like Perla, (mea culpa) it just seems right for Rufus to be there?

I basically tried to think of artists that have covered LC, placed him in high esteem, and could show up, some of them surprising us all. Plus, that it is taking so long to put this together might have to do with the fact that these are major artists and the logistics of having them appear are probably staggering to put together.

There have to be singers I have missed......

When this was announced, I was excited for a moment that Bob Dylan might appear at a Leonard Cohen tribute concert. Alas, Dylan has a concert scheduled for that date as well.

Mary I apologize...Rufus does not have anything on his website in early November. I looked a couple weeks ago and must have read it wrong.

yopietro,

Glad to see someone else aiming high besides me. Sorry for your sake that he won't be there...

Leslie,

No worries - at least Rufus is back in the running :D

Wendy,

I did check tour dates for all I listed, except for band and backup singers - still surprised that Perla won't be there!

I listed Jackson because I vividly remember (since Bev in Australia is a fan) him being at the LA rehearsals - he is certainly a possibility.

With your incredible knowledge of concerts and the mechanizations of putting a concert together, how likely is it that the chemistry would work with the artists listed? What would be a good roster?

I would give any tribute for a recording of the Man himself, songs, poems, shared silence.

The evening should surely be all about Leonard. I have a concern about big names like Bono deflecting attention away from Leonard to himself but he's done it before so I'm probably being a bit unfair. Any line up should work perfectly provided love for Leonard and his work is the dominant theme.

I'm a massive Jackson Browne fan myself. He has his detractors but he can be very generous of spirit and I would love to see him part of the line up ....

If we could only add the people L.Cohen would ask from the tower of song ..
