Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Austin, October 31 & 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.

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

Typed most of this last night but was too tired to finish it. I think Arlene's excellent report covers all of the essential, so sorry if I have duplicated anything. For what its worth, here are my thoughts: Row 1 seat: It was like having a private performance Smiling on stage : More than I have ever...

Re: Dino Soldo not in the tour band

I didn't comment on this previously, but having seen the band here are my thoughts. This, like the rest of this 10 page thread is pure conjecture of course. It strikes me that Dino, who is obviously a very talented musician and has a very strong stage presence, is probably difficult to cohesively in...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Dublin Sept 11, 12, 14 & 15, 2012

Could someone tell me what time roughly it finished at? is it 11 or 10:45? He left the stage finally at 11.00 on the dot. Allow 15 mins to exit the venue. We're flying off to dublin for Friday's concert and were wondering what clothes to take. The weather forecast is looking ok, but the woolly jump...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Dublin Sept 11, 12, 14 & 15, 2012

A great evening and a truly memorable performance. Mr Cohen and band in top form producing a fresh, polished and aparantly effortless performance that can only be the result of huge effort and very hard work.  Comparisons with the previous tour are pointless but it was at least as good if not better...

Re: DUBLIN 2012

From Dublin. The evening skies are clear this week meaning its bloody cold sitting outside. I sat in a garden less than a mile from kilmainham this evening and it was far from comfortable due to the chill. So if you are travelling for his I suggest packing your thermals at the very least. And if you...

Re: PRESALE on March 29 to Gothenburg/Dublin/Paris

Hey guys. Veteran of Kilmainham 2008 (in the pouring rain) and O2 2009 here. Missed out on Sligo 2010 and never thought the great man would tour again. I bought tickets in 2008 in hope rather than anything else, that it wasn't just another formerly great artist cashing in on former glories. While I...

Re: PRESALE on March 29 to Gothenburg/Dublin/Verona/Paris

i don't suppose there is any hope of getting a seating plan for Dublin is there? Presumably they haven't really thought about it yet given it's over 6 months away yet. I wasn't at the last Kilmainham concert and from what I've seen of youtube videos etc the seating looked really wide out to the sid...
