Re: UK CONCERTS

Songwriter.......you are not the only one excited to see LC under the stars! I will have my blanket, my waterproofs, and a picnic. A flask of coffee in the car so I can sit and wait until all the traffic has cleared (rather than sitting in a 2 hour muddy queue as at Wetbridge). Saw Dylan under the s...

Re: Tickets

I counted no less than 7 very new forum members on the latest page of the thread for the Dublin pre-sale (3rd show), 6 of them first time posters and the vast majority of them saying "Help! I've never bought pre-sale tickets before. Can you tell me what to do". Doesn't that sum up the problems in a...

Re: HOP FARM (UK), 8 SEPT ON GENERAL SALE

What on earth is going on on this forum? Accusations and grumbles are flying around! Perhaps we should not forget that just 4 years ago none of us had any inkling that we would ever see LC in concert again! Since then we have had the most glorious gift of being able to see LC in dozens of countries ...

Re: When are the next dates and places?

I'm beginning to feel somewhat concerned again for the man at the centre of all this, and whether he's able to maintain his invincibility! I think I understand your concerns but there does seem to be several factors in play. The tours have been received with overwhelming appreciation and joy from e...

Re: UK CONCERTS

I remember Weybridge as a great evening. I honestly cannot remember the bad weather. I understand in hindsight that there was a lot of rain. I just remember a great afternoon and evening of music. Suzanne Vega was on stage before LC. Hopefully Hop Farm will be idyllic weather, but if it turns out t...

Re: HOP FARM (UK), 8 SEPT ON PRESALE NOW

i also just saw this : Ticket sales for Leonard Cohen’s one-off show at the Hop Farm in September look almost certain too see a second date added. A Day at the Hop Farm is scheduled for Saturday, September 8 went on sale this morning. A second date will be added on the Sunday. The all-seater show w...

Re: UK CONCERTS

John, yes you are right about the 'big three' and the rest. Unfortunately they seem to be acting quite legally and the venues don't care as long as the tickets are not fake, they have already received their money. The only way round it it to have a name printed on one ticket and restrict sales to 2 ...

Re: UK CONCERTS

Stargazer - I was happy to pay £100 for best seats at the O2 and Royal Albert Hall, but I wouldn't risk paying that for an open air show in the U.K. Personally, I wish they would clamp down on illegal downloading; stop Amazon's global domination by under-cutting (to save Independent record shops), ...

Re: UK CONCERTS

Megalos, I think you are quite correct in your assessment of how musicians make their money now. For major artists, most ticket prices seem to be £70+, even for the cheap seats. It is a stuggle to pay such large amounts but I think most of us are aware that he is not going to be touring for much lon...

Re: HOP FARM (UK), 8 SEPT ON SALE NOW

........... I gave in and shall float over the dreadful access and egress and fly with the concert. I got block A row F seats 81-83. praying for a sunny day starts now. If it is any consolation, the rain at Wetbridge certainly added to the atmosphere, and the band played on (even if they did strugg...
