Re: Leonard's Recent Meetings with Cohenites

I only wish we had arranged to meet up after our breakfasts. Next stop LV for you? ;-) Jill Yes, we should have done that - it would have been nice to have shared the moment with you both. Thanks for your company, and I appreciate you both seeing me back to my hotel safely on Saturday night. As for...

Re: Leonard's Recent Meetings with Cohenites

"So let me tell my story...." (BOLH) This is a continuation from my Lille concert report. I'd travelled to Lille on my own-this was a first, but no problems- had a fabulous day on the Saturday. Not much sleep Saturday night, awoke too early on the Sunday with a head-ache, enjoyed a generous typical ...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Lille, France, Sept 25, 2010

Have very little to add to these other well-written reports really; another special day to remember. Enjoyed the meet-up which was informal and friendly - good food, good beer and wine, good company. The concert was, as always, memorable - audience quiet at first, but 2nd half more relaxed and a noi...

Re: Lille, who is going??

Thanks Victorine, and others, for arranging the meet-up in Lille. It was good to put faces to names and eat, drink and chat together. Thanks in particular to somewhat-nifty for the whisper in my ear as I was in the Eurostar queue, that Leonard was in fact within a stone's throw away.....and so off I...

I know as an encounter it's not exactly up there with Frost/Nixon,

Oh yes it is! I know who I'd rather meet! and yes, I too met him this morning at his hotel. Have only just got home, so will tell my story and include photo shortly.

Re: Lille, who is going??

Please count me in on the Lille meet-up!
Am arriving about 2-ish on Eurostar, staying in Hotel de la Paix - wherever that might be.... - and have to collect ticket before concert. Somewhere not far from the venue sounds good, either before or after the concert - in fact, preferably both! :D

Carlowmike, I still prefer the original inscription - without the 'With Love'. It's brief, simple, yet says it all. Just an opinion!

Re: QUIZ 2010: where is the last concert

That's it then - last concert is in TVLCOTTIH :?: (the name however does resemble the name of a a village in north Wales which has a pub, but certainly no arena)
After all, if Jarkko is attending a concert there........

Re: Sligo-Help for newbies.

The Visitor's Book signed by Leonard when he paid a visit to Drumcliffe is now in safe-keeping, it will be preserved and put on public display at a later stage. Good - I remember reading in some previous post that one member could not find his signature and hoped it had not been 'removed.' Also, I ...

Re: QUIZ 2010: where is the last concert

Just read Jarkko's brief post re. Helsinki concert last night. Reading the concert places he is attending this year, what / where is the place after Gent??? I'm sure I hadn't noticed it there before.
