Re: Jason Molina died Saturday

Very sad news, and more shocking when I'm looking at his dozen great albums - he was only 39. The good die young? Oh no. If you're not familiar with him, maybe start with "The Lioness" by Songs: Ohia, it's a wonderful record.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Berlin, Germany, August 18, 2010

To "catch" one of those "add-ons" is probably a matter of luck and I guess Leonard simply chooses to play them spontaneously, dependent on his mood. Yesterday, as already mentioned in this thread, he obviously reacted on a big poster with "We Lover Lover Lover You" and played the song after the usu...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Berlin, Germany, August 18, 2010

Maulwurf, thanks a lot for your thoughts about yesterday's concert, I find it very interesting, even if I disagree mostly. First, i agree with the daylight, I found the later parts in the dark better. But, an arena like the 02-world could stand (and stands) anywhere in the western civilication, once...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Berlin, Germany, August 18, 2010

Just a few words before work has to start. For me, of all the three concerts in Berlin, yesterday has been the best. Mainly because of the venue, much better than the awful 02-arena, first of all the sound was much better. Surprisingly, it seems for many people - even after two years of the world to...

Re: PRESALE TO CONCERTS IN GERMANY on APRIL 22!!!

Hi Arlene, There was a concert scheduled for the Waldbuehne in 2008 which was cancelled later. I had bought a ticket and remember that there were numbered seats, including the area right in front of the stage. That's why I think there will be seats in this area for our concert as well. Can anyone c...

27.7. - Leonard in Salzburg!

There's a short article online, that says that the concert of the 27th July is in Salzburg: http://www.krone.at/krone/S52/object_id__195104/hxcms/ Leonard Cohen kommt in die Salzburgarena Nach den umjubelten Gastspielen in Wien und Wiesen drängt es Leonard Cohen "auf seine alten Tage" jetzt in den W...

Re: New LC biography: Titan der Worte

Sorry for writing in german, but because the book is written in german, I hope for this time it's ok: Auch ich möchte allen, die die Bücher von Graf nicht kennen, dringend abraten. Abgesehen von der bereits geäußerten Kritik sind die Bücher vor allem unzumutbar schlecht geschrieben, ein Hohn angesic...

Re: What is going on ?

Maybe someone else had the same thought, but to turn our thinking in a more positive way - Jarkko wrote "Members might consider holding off on booking flights and hotels that cannot be changed until the announcement!" - that could also mean, you should not book any other flight etc. - not connected ...

Not so much, I think. Just think two years back, what a privilege of a discussion we hav...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Barcelona, September 21 (Leonard's birthday)

Leonard being welcomed on stage by a standing ovation (a lot of commotion going on where I was, so video partially a bit shaky). His smile at the end of the clip is so lovely, what a start to the gig! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2N-NTD5NzWk More clips to follow... Thanks a lot for that clip - he...

Re: Hallelujah! It's back!!!!

This documentary was made by Georg Stefan Troller, a quite famous writer and director from austria, so this could be interesting. Just the great scene with the cleaning women with "if it be your will" in the background (that gave me a complete new view on that song) ! But, I speak german and watched...

Re: Summer tour: speculations (several threads merged)

As everyone can easily see, I'm not posting very much in this forum. But I read it constantly, and I think, I'm not the only one who prefers that kind of participation. But for this time, I like to post something and thank you, Amrei, for your post. To everyone posting here: Don't let this get as aw...

Boogie Street in Berlin

I took a look at the posted setlist for Berlin - and Boogie Street is not included, but I'm sure it was played (it's not possible to forget the Intro by Sharon). So, if I'm not wrong, please could someone change the list. I know, it's not important ...

Re: Munich, October6

Well, for a second I had the same thought in Berlin. But I'm not sure, if we are now just used to his "new" voice - after he stopped smoking and drinking so much - so that we are no longer so impressed of it (and in Lörrach, I was really impressed by his voice, and afterwards, some of the records, e...
