Re: CONCERT REPORT: London, UK , September 15, 2013

It's Leonard's old world charm which makes him unique as a performer. Who else bows and takes their hat off to the other musicians and singers on stage? And, of course, the charm is reciprocated. His fellow performers also bow to him with sheer love and admiration. I've been a Bob Dylan fan all my l...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Leeds UK - Saturday 7 September 2013

So glad the Leeds show was a huge success and one of LC's best songs, Anthem, was back on the setlist. I last saw LC in Leeds as a student 41 years ago on the 1972 tour. And my abiding memory then as I looked down at the stage from the university refectory balcony was how full of joy he was for the ...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Cardiff Wales, 3rd Sept 2013

Just came back from England last night and after having seen two phantastic concerts in Brighton and Cardiff. The Cardiff setlist as posted by Zwirnie is how I remember it. I was standing right in front of the stage and when after "Save the last dance" I saw him talking to the musicians and they we...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Bournemouth UK - Monday 26 August 2013

Concert report for Bournemouth in today's mail on Sunday magazine Thanks, Jilly, I don't normally get round to the Sunday magazines! The five-star review, by David Bennun, is in the Mail on Sunday's Event and all fans will agree with him when he says Leonard Cohen as a performer is now "right at th...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Brighton, AUGUST 28th 2013

I have snatched an opportunity to catch up on this, as a little Hors D' Oeuvre for Birmingham next week. Thanks to all for the posts. John Etherington, like others special thanks for your great review. You always tell a great story and your Manchester Opera House 2008 was also epic. I'm praying tha...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Bournemouth UK - Monday 26 August 2013

I think it's a matter of balance and a little bit of sanity in relation to enjoying the concert and not becoming obsessive about any type of photos or recording . I'm travelling from 4am tomorrow morning to get to the concert so it's always a concern what you do with the camera if there's strict ru...

John Etherington wrote:I must add that (although I like it) "I Tried To Leave You" has become something of a cliche, and because it's long and rambling it's the last thing you want to hear when there are so many songs and so little time (especially if you've got a train to catch!).
Have to agree.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Brighton, AUGUST 28th 2013

Shame about the non-appearance of Anthem (again). After re-appearing at Odense and Oslo, it seems to have vanished once more. Maybe fans at other UK shows will be luckier. Come on, Leonard!

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Bournemouth UK - Monday 26 August 2013

I was apprehensive about this venue but I needn't have worried. Much more intimate than the O2, Leonard had the enthusiastic audience in the palm of his hands. He started at 7.40pm and finished promptly at 11pm, presumably because of the curfew. Even so, with a 20-minute interval, Leonard and the ba...
