Re: "Leonard Cohen Live in London" > DVD & 2CD (April 2009)

Thank you Sturgess66 for digging out all this stuff. It was remiss of me not to thank you for your contribution to the Barcelona concert thread. I found this piece intelligent and provides a good insight into what's going on with this 'resurrection'.

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

Thank you Marie and Tom for your prompt postings. Thank you Bloodbrother for your wonderful review. I hope you win the lottery so you can go to the states! Otherwise, if you only ever tally one gig, you were at a memorable one.

Finally, can we have more pleeease....

Re: Leonard consults the Kaballah and departs

Thanks Sue, this is brilliant. I have the book, read it twice, and missed this (tho' the shave thing rings a bell!). Probably my age....

Re: Leonard consults the Kaballah and departs

I remember seeing the full film 'bird on a were' in the early 70s and it was a real revelation. It disapeared after doing the rounds just once. I recall that LC was unhappy with the final product and only allowed the release due to contractual commitments. It provided a unique insight into the man, ...

Re: London RAH, 17-18 November 2008

Adam Many thanks for your review, I'm glad you got round to posting it, I can add little. I was at the Tuesday RAH gig also, my 4th of 6 shows during the 08/09 tour. I thought chelsea Hotel#2 was unusually good. He seemed to sing it to the spirit of JJ. This has happened at all the shows for me. In ...

Hello Billie and welcome to the forum. Were you at the Venice gig? If so, what did you think?

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Venice, August 3

Hi Ken

Good to see you are on form ( I had forgotten you are a scholar of the theatre). I had best not own up to enjoying the sound of music last year at the Palladium then.

Clem, you are going to make me self concious if you carry on like this. Are you a teacher, or American, or both?

Thanks

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Venice, August 3

I am studying Maarten's techniques closely in the hope that I might also get to Las Vegas and San Jose. Maarten needs to practice also for when he approaches his boss for some more time off to see Leonard Cohen.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Venice, August 3

Jarkko and Eija, can I add my thanks. As it was very likely the last show for me, I took my camera along to have a record. However, it failed me! So, to have this wonderful collection along with those forwarded by Andrea is a real life saver. Paula, for me it was the best venue and will be a memory ...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Venice, August 3

Something in the air? I don't know what happened in Venice on Monday, but above the "usual perfection" (that sounds horrible;) of the band and Leonard's standard superb delivery, there was something in the air, at least when Leonard himself was in question. Thank you Tom for your continued enlighte...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Venice, August 3

Just arrived back from Venice. A Memorable gig. It poured with rain for a couple hours and stopped about thirty minutes prior to the start, which was delayed for about 15 minutes due to poor organisation. I had read the Lucca reports from last year, so we arrived at San Marco nice and early. However...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Lisbon, July 30th.

Thank you all for your wonderful reviews (especially burning violin - you took me there). I'm soaking it all up in preparation for Venice on Monday. Monday will be the first gig I'll attend without knowing when or if I will get to see him again. Is this it?

Fabulous! Block A row H 1-2 So I've not seen him for the last time! There's more to come. The fall tour was more fun tho'. ie. An outline of the tour with significant gaps where extra dates could be added, and guessed at. What's the betting he will do Manchester again.. and definately the Point Depo...
