Re: DUBLIN 2012

Does the fact that it's freezing mean less of an issue with midges?

Re: is it ok to bring my 7 year old to a Cohen concert

Interesting points, Andrew. I've got in the habit of distracting my kids with a spurious question whenever the relevant lines are about to be heard! When one of them printed out the lyrics to "The Future" and stuck it on her bedroom wall under a photo of Leonard, I was a little concerned in case her...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: London, September 8 & 9

Hi Lorca1999, yes my girls were wearing the hats (at their insistence, I should add). It gives me huge pleasure to give them the opportunity to see a show of such incomparable quality, though despite my best efforts I'm not sure they can possibly realise how lucky they are. I've mentioned this befor...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: London, September 8 & 9

I entirely agree with that, Vicomte - it amazes me that these shows seem to get better and better. As for the appeal to a younger audience, I took my 11 and 9 year olds to the show on Saturday and they absolutey loved it ( my 6 year old was disappointed to be left at home but you have to draw the li...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: London, September 8 & 9

I made it to the Green Man on Sunday but somehow failed to identify any Forum members! Ah well, maybe next time. Another magical evening, and I can't improve on the reviews above. Roll on Dublin!

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: London, September 8 & 9

I couldn't agree more - a wonderful night indeed. Leonard seemed in great fettle, and voice, and seemed to be really obviously enjoying himself. The band sounded brilliant and yet again the Webb Sisters and Sharon elevated the experience to new heights - incredible. I thought the audience a little s...

Re: Lots of good seats for Wembly released

John Good luck with your Sunday logistics! I know what you mean about the concerts creeping up rather suddenly. I confess I bottled out of a trip to Hop Farm and am now facing 2 visits to Wembley, one to Dublin and one to Paris inside 3 weeks. I am thrilled about this, though my wife thinks I am ins...

Re: PARIS meet up?

I would love to meet some of you, but I am going to the gig on Friday 28th and won't arrive in Paris until my train from London gets in at 18.47 that evening. By the time I have dashed across town I suspect the Friday pre-meet will be over, I may struggle to attend the post-show meet due to family c...

Re: Why everybody should read Presale to 3rd Concert in Dubl

Thanks so much, Lizzytysh! It was such a wonderful incident, and made a huge impact on me too, as well as creating quite a bond between me and my elder daughter (who has pictures of Leonard, her with Leonard, her and me with Leonard on her bedroom wall). We owe the experience to Somehwat Nifty and G...

Re: Why everybody should read Presale to 3rd Concert in Dubl

"Welcome, Barbara. I love to hear stories of parents introducing their kids to Leonard. And you did double duty -- two generations.

Re: PRESALE TO the 3rd CONCERT IN DUBLIN

The words of welcome are appreciated. Some of us are by our nature more reticent than others when it comes to posting on public sites, and the tone of some of the posts has at times been a bit offputting. But I recognise that each is entitled to express his or her view, and I wouldn't want to change...
