Re: Meet Up in Boston

Hello everyone, I do have a bit of an update. After speaking with the rep at the Revere, we do have a couple of options. First of all, to reserve a private room is very expensive. They would require a minimum $750 food order so I think that is out. Next option is for $250 plus a flat fee gratuity w...

Re: Where will our 2014 Event be?

I must say, it's much harder to get an Irish visa than to visit Schengen countries for the Russians (and I'm afraid, for citizens of some other countries too). Personally I will not make a journey to Ireland, although will perhaps attend the Event held in Belgium or Croatia (not in Schengen, but na...

Re: Where will our 2014 Event be?

Well as I said, I'm really happy to have everyone over to Cork, and I've now got the support of Albert (IrishAl) Marie (IrishMar) Bernadine (tinderella) and Paula (Aloe Vera) in Dublin, and Gwen (Musicmania) in Kildare to form a core organisation group within the country plus Ruth (Somewhat_Nifty) ...

Re: Meet Up in Boston

Catherine, maybe we should try for the private room anyway: if you send me the quote from the hotel I will try to collect the minimum payment via PayPal from those interested and book it. We've had great success with PayPal collections for the Madison event and other projects, we're still more than ...

Re: PRESALE TO NEW YORK AND BROOKLYN

First off, I am in the front rows of section F5 thanks to this forum and the presale. Cheers. Anyone else worried about these shows getting cancelled? There are an enormous amount of tickets available at all prices and all sections. It looks like the only parts sold out are floor. I feel like it's ...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Austin, October 31 and November 1

Do you think he's referring to climate change? The Flood was written in 1973, climate change was not high on the public agenda at that point in time. So I think it is safe to say that the poem was originally referring to a metaphorical flood. This can be further supported by the fact that it was wr...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Austin, October 31 and November 1

And there were two references to Hurricane Sandy last night (Nov 1): Leonard dedicated "Banjo" to the people of New Orleans, New Jersey and Staten Island. After reciting "The Flood" (as an intro to Anthem) Leonard said: "Now I do have the proof" which might have been a reference to the recent floods.

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Austin, October 31 and November 1

Reciting lines from a song as an opener is something that Leonard used to do in prior tours, but not in the tour of 2008-2010.. Hm ... I seem to remember he did that in 2008 - 2010. - E. g. for "If it be your Will", "Born in Chains", and "Anthem". I have two things to say about that: 1. Of course, ...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Austin, October 31 and November 1

Night two in Austin was also fabulous! Some points that I found interesting: Leonard set up "Alexandra Leaving" (performed by Sharon) and "Coming Back to You" (performed by by the Webbs) by reciting a few lines from each song. Reciting lines from a song as an opener is something that Leonard used to...

Re: The Summer 2002 Quiz

That would be too easy to answer... The last concert of the 2012 Old Ideas Tour will be in Brooklyn!! :lol: BUT we could ask "where is the first concert of the 2013 tour" (in which city)? Of course the correct answer might be "nowhere. There is no tour in 2013", but what would be your answer if the...

Re: Dino Soldo not in the tour band

Amen to that mutti & Cheshire gal. I wrote much the same sort of thing a couple of weeks ago: For goodness sake, let this thread die and just enjoy the music whilst Leonard is still willing and able to play live for us. Wendy Maybe, just maybe, we can draw this to a conclusion now? Wendy Yes, please.
