Re: CONCERT REPORT: Zagreb, Croatia, July 25, 2010

All right - mention of part of the female anatomy - the vagina - has apparently made a comeback here. How about equal time for the men? A mention of part of their anatomy - with a little humour. All right. Here's my personal anecdote. It is in Croatian and completely untranslationable due to lacal ...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Zagreb, Croatia, July 25, 2010

FANTASTIC! Leonard Cohen takes back his magnificent "Hallelujah!" A beautiful intense, but quieter, prayer-like performance. 6:00 -touches his heart about telling truth - no laugh, or even a smile, when he says he "did not come to Zagreb to fool you." At 6:34 - hands together as in prayer. Which on...

Thanks to hint by Paul Zagreb, I just bought today's issue of leading weekly newspaper GLOBUS - three full pages of review written by one of the most Cohen -knowleadgable music critic here, Sven Semencic. There's no web version. I will try scan it. The title itself is worth translating: "Arena woul...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Zagreb, Croatia, July 25, 2010

I felt disappointed with the set list at the Zagreb show as Leonard choose not to give us anything fresh whether a taste of something from the forthcoming new album or some different songs from the back catalogue. I also thought the band looked very reserved and dare I say even bored at some points...

Re: Presale to Ljubljana; general sale from July 5th

Any news about seating for Ljubljana show in October? It's quite difficult to make out different website's schedules of seating arrangements, for example on Eventim.si tickets for Tribuna I (first "ring") are not available at all, or am I seeing something wrong. Is it best to order via http://www.si...

Re: Zagreb July 25: meet-up, tribute concert, exhibition, press

Good thing about sensationalist media, such as some here in Croatia, is that they quickly move on to more "yellow" topics. For them Leonard was interesting for as long as photo of his arrival was not posted on all news sites. There and then sensation died and they moved on to their "yellower" pastur...

Hello friends, I am new to this forum in terms of contributing, but a long term reader and lurker from below. :) It is incredibly exciting to be just days away from seeing Leonard live for the first time, after so many years and so many songs. And there he stands (or rather, runs away from pesky pho...
