Re: Munich, October6

Hm, to be honest there's one thing I didn't like that much: When I was in Lörrach, what he said to the audience all seemed so true and personal. But when I saw the show in Munich for the second time, most of what he said seemed identical. Of course I'm not saying he wouldn't mean it, but a little a...

Re: Vienna Sept. 24 meet up ?

I enjoyed the concert, Konzerthaus provided a splendid background for Leonard, the audience was strangely mixed: gentelman snoozing in the first row next to non-Austrians trying to express their enthusiasm in a more extroverted way. I asked a Polish expat living in Vienna for 20+ years about the au...

Re: Leonard coming to Australia !!

Funny how "TomD", the person who wrote the first post in this thread and was so sure he was right about Cohen touring Australia in 2008, has gone very quiet since that first post.

Nice to see this up, pity the sound quality isn't better though.

Re: Vienna, Sept 24 and 25

I would say that was extremely unlikely to have been Cohen.

The 25th show is up on Dimeadozen now but the sound quality is not great.

Whatever. The point is, there will be some kind of official DVD and it will be taken from a number of shows.

Re: Vienna, Sept 24 and 25

We were at the Konzerthaus on 24th and noticed that it was being filmed. There were at least three discreetly positioned cameras that we spotted. Did anyone notice if there were also cameras filming the concert on the 25th ? Yes, there were cameras on the 25th as well. I think lots of the shows are...

Re: Vienna, Sept 24 and 25

I was amazed how quiet the sound system was, you couldn't hear a word Leonard said between songs and even during songs someone ten rows away breaking wind would drown out everything. The problem with having three different gigs in the same building at the same time, I guess. Certainly, I spent 600+...

Re: Vienna, Sept 24 and 25

Any review of how the second night was different from the first? I thought the second night had a slight edge over the first, but not by much. The setlist and performances were of course identical, but I thought the second night audience was slightly more vocal and enthusiastic, which Cohen and the...

I was at the front last night and shouted for it, Leonard definitely heard the shout but he didn't play it anyway :(
