Tips Regarding Montreal Visit

Fellow fans, We are planning a first-time visit to Montreal in August. Not only will we get to see a city we have always wanted to visit, we will get a sense of the city LC grew up in and see a few LC-related sites. My question--I guess directed towards residents--is, can anyone recommend any B&Bs o...

Re: New Books 2014

I've been reading "So Long Marianne A Love Story," and at the end of the chapter recounting Marianne's husband Axel's sad decline, the author says, "It had been a long way to the bottom. Or, as Leonard Cohen would later write: Yes it's come to this, and wasn't it a long way down." Dress Rehearsal Ra...

Re: Where is our 2016 Event??

Someone mentioned here that Dublin event sign-ups are lower than expected. That's sad, but I think partially due to what Harald alluded, when there is or may be another tour coming, some fans will be reticent about depleting funds to attend an "event," funds they may prefer to spend to see concerts....

Re: Rob Hallett exits AEG Live

Hallet stepped up when no one else would, I am grateful for that, no matter how much money he ultimately made. Making money in honest endeavors is still (I think?) acceptable. The price of anything, including concert tickets, is governed by the supply/demand function in free market societies. No one...

Re: Rob Hallett exits AEG Live

If Sylvie Simmons' book is accurate, Rob Hallet's involvement with LC's decision to tour again was quite a bit more than a simple business decision; it was a risk of money and reputation that few others--likely no others--were willing to undertake. This quote is from page 481 of her fine book, which...

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

For the inscription I nominate:

Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.

Not only does this quote characterize Leonard's life, I believe that these lines directly refer to Hydra.

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

If we are going with the bench idea, I believe that an engraved stone bench would be far preferable to a wooden bench due to durability and resistance to vandalism. I see suppliers in the NE United States with granite products in the $500 range (not sure if this includes engraving), but obviously sh...

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

An event in Montreal would be fitting, although attendance by European admirers would obviously be limited.

Re: CONCERTS IN AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND

To those forum members living on the bottom of the world (I'm still not sure why you don't fall off), hope your leg of the 2013 tour is memorable, you've had a long wait.

Don't forget to provide some videos for us up here, we're still in the throes of withdrawal!

To be brief: LC began touring in 2008 after 15-year hiatus, played 246 concerts worldwide through December, 2010. LC recorded a new album, "Old Ideas," which was released in January, 2012 and very-well received. LC began new tour in 2012, when it concludes in December he will have played about 125 m...

Re: Tour 2014?

From the Trivia Department:

If Leonard decides to resume touring in 2014/2015 and performs 132 more times, he will have played 1,000 concerts in his career.

And amazingly, more than half of the total (503) will have been performed after his 73rd birthday!

Here's hoping.....

Re: Happy Birthday Leonard!!

Mr. Cohen,

Thank you for resuming your tours, it allowed us to discover the many beautiful songs you've composed since we lost touch with your music in the early 1970's, with the added benefits of seeing new cities and meeting many warm and gentle people. Stay well, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Curt & Joann
