Re: QUIZ: where is the last concert of the tour?

Dang, James, I was going to say Moscow. So I guess I'll go for St. Petersburg instead (not the one in Florida). Still nice and close to Helsinki ... .

But of course it should be, has to be, ought to be, please, please, please, Montreal.

Re: Cohen nominated for Polaris Prize

Interesting. Some stiff competition, but I can't imagine that LC wouldn't at a minimum make it to the short list. We won't have to wait long to find out - the short list will be announced on July 7th.

Re: Ottawa Meetup

Hi all - I have made a reservation for 20-25 people at Darcy's McGee's after the concert - around 11:15. Not sure that we really needed a reservation, but it never hurts (Ottawa isn't exactly Paris or New York - pubs typically are not full after 11 on a Monday night). I told them that we would proba...

Re: Kingston Mini Event/Meet Up

Don - what lake is your cottage on? Is it within an hour or so from Ottawa? I unfortunately can't make the concert in Kingston, but I might be able to sneak away for a few hours on Saturday.

Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Re: Ottawa Meetup

I should be able to make Sunday night at the Georgetown as well, sounds like fun. I used to live on Belmont, so know the street (and all the previous pubs on that location) well. I'll be bringing at least two people with me, three if we find a sitter for the kids and I let my husband come. I can't w...

Re: Ottawa Meetup

I will commit to reserving us a spot at Darcy McGee's on Sparks Street for after the concert(s). Anyone else planning on attending either of the concerts please let me know if you would like to join us at Darcy's after the concerts. Bill's Bar - yes, it is an Irish pub - well, at least a pseudo-Cana...

Re: Ottawa Meetup

Is the plan to meet afterwards or beforehand? We are having dinner with friends before the concert on the 25th, but would love to meet up with a group after the concert. Darcy McGee's is quite a nice and large pub across the street from the NAC. There will no doubt be quiet areas in there on a Monda...

Ottawa: looking to swap a single May 25 for a May 26

Hi there - I would love to swap the single extra ticket I have for the May 25th show (Row D, Seat 14) for a single ticket for the May 26th show. I had thought I would sell the extra ticket I have for the 25th, but have finally decided that I would prefer to go both nights! That said, if there is a f...

Re: LC interview with Jian Ghomeshi on CBC - aired this morning

rmm, Jian has never hosted The Hour - not to my knowledge at any rate. Perhaps as a guest host. Could you be confusing him with George Stroumbolopolous? (I don't really know how to spell his name properly, my apologies). George is the regular host of The Hour on CBC TV. I don't much like him or that...

2006 Cdn Songwriters Hall of Fame Gala event

Hello - three years ago I watched the 3rd annual gala for new inductees to the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame. LC was inducted, and Willy Nelson, k.d. lang and Rufus Wainwright all performed LC's songs for him. It was a fantastic show. In his recent interview with Jian Ghomeshi Leonard referenced...

Re: LC interview with Jian Ghomeshi on CBC - aired this morning

I must agree with UrPal, there were a number of 'stupid' questions. I generally enjoy Jian Ghomeshi's interview style, but I found the questions to be entirely unoriginal. While I of course enjoyed hearing LC speak for some 40 minutes, I learned nothing new, gained very little new insight. I think J...

Re: LC interview with Jian Ghomeshi on CBC - aired this morning

Another interesting short read about LC's recent CBC interview. This piece is the producer's take on the whole process of interviewing Leonard Cohen - the difficult handlers, trying set-up and of course the immense pleasure at actually meeting and speaking with the man himself, at his Montreal home ...
