Re: Beautiful Losers and The Favourite Game

As I said, the drinking was in college. 12 years ago. Who doesn't experiment with alcohol at one time or another? I will openly admit I was spiritually underdeveloped: I wouldn't go back and change a thing.

Re: 29-May-09 Boston, MA Wang Theatre

hi Mary and Brooke and Leonard from Montreal: So sorry. I won't be attending the show in Boston. I just couldn't see spending the money to fly up (from Atlanta) and stay in hotel, etc. Money is tight---I'm sure you've heard! I was blessed enough to see him one time in NYC and you will not be disappo...

Re: 29-May-09 Boston, MA Wang Theatre

Let me be clear: I didn't meet THE Leonard Cohen. I met Leonard, a guy from the Forum, from Montreal. A bunch of us from the Forum met up at a bar after the Beacon show in NYC. I said I would be wearing a certain hat, so people would know who I was, and then I met a super nice guy, Leonard, and a gi...

Re: 29-May-09 Boston, MA Wang Theatre

Had the most amazing experience seeing Leonard in NYC. He is nothing less than you could ever imagine. I, too, am hoping to get tickets to Boston concert. Trying to talk my husband into going. It will be my second show! PS: Nice to meet you Leonard in Montreal!!! Joanna Please keep posting if you pl...

Re: The North American Tour & Presale for members

At face value, the ones at the Beacon Theatre were from $75-$250. Need I say they are worth it??!?!?!?

Re: The North American Tour & Presale for members

COuld someone explain what cities will be on the sale dates for 'B' and 'C'?
I keep reading and rereading, but I can't quite understand what date to look for the cities other than the ones listed under Group 'A'.
Thank you for any help,
Jo

Re: New York, February 19, 2009 - Beacon Theatre Show

Firstly, let me say my heart is so grateful to Jarkko and Dan (withheld last name) for allowing me the opportunity to see this legend in concert. I flew by myself from Atlanta, a married mom of two, and stayed at the Hotel Beacon never knowing what my reaction would be when Leonard walked onto the s...

Re: Beacon Concert Update

I cannot wait to meet y'all! Yes, y'all---I'm flying from down South tomorrow. Can't wait to put names with faces, but I don't have the vip reception. However, this will be my dream come true---I've been wanting to see Mr. Cohen LIVE since I was 14 and I can't believe it's tomorrow!!!!! YIPPEE!!! Se...

Re: Beacon Concert Update

You guys are making me nervous. Can't I just show up a little around 7:30 and see Leonard? Eeegads. It's not like it's going to be a bunch of young kids holding lighters and standing, is it?

Re: Beautiful Losers and The Favourite Game

Thanks, John.
Maybe I will reread it and picture Leonard as young Breaveman!

Beautiful Losers and The Favourite Game

I read Beautiful Losers in college (9 years ago) in a catharsis of drunkeness after being out till the wee hours of the morning. Then I would call information in Los Angeles looking for any L. Cohen's. It's a funny memory, and the book was a little less confusing after drinking so much. Not until la...

Re: Our Postconcert Meetup at O'Hurley's

I really hope to be able to go to the postconcert meetup. I'm coming to NY by myself and staying with a friend in Harlem, so we'll see!!! Look forward to meeting other Leonard fans---although I might be a touch younger--31. All my best. I'm going to try to wear a pink, knit hat---so look for me! Joa...

Re: Find and sell New York tickets here

I just tried for the wheelchair access and was told they are not open to person who are not disabled. Am I doing something wrong?
