Re: Leonard Cohen Concert Inspires Oscar Winner-Best Documen

I saw the documentary. It is okay, but cannot hold a candle to last years winner "Searching for Sugarman", which was also music-themed and was exceptional.

Leonard on "How I Met Your Mother"

Well, LC has finally entered into American popular culture. In tonight's episode of the popular sitcom, How I Met Your Mother, on a list of all things Canadian to be grateful for, he was named.

Re: FIND/SELL VIP BAGS AND/OR LITHOS FROM 2013 OLD IDEAS TOU

My package arrived yesterday for the Oakland concert over a month ago. My dog likes the whistle, but what is the purpose
of the 8x10 bag, which does not even have a tour reference on it?

Re: Searching for Sugarman

Zeehaen - Rodriguez is currently on a world tour. I believe he is now in New Zealand and Australia, then on to the US and Europe. You can check dates on: www.sugarman.org. Sue7 - I agree that the role of his music in fermenting the anti-apartheid movement is greatly overstated in the movie, but the ...

Re: Is it becoming slightly stale?

Steve Wilcox - you are absolutely correct. I'm one of 200-300 who have seen multiple concerts and I am tired. Those of us among the regulars have to realize that LC is now in every sense of the word a SUPERSTER - and the vast majority of the audience are newbies. What to me is stunning is that all o...

Re: Is it becoming slightly stale?

I am a lifelong LC fan - since 1968 or 1969 - I forget. I have been to eight concerts since the current tour began. Last Saturday in Oakland will be my last LC gig unless there is a substantial restructuring of the concert format, set list, etc. They have been fantastic and I never thought I would e...

Well Searching for Sugar Man won the Oscar for best documentary on Sunday. Those who have not yet seen it should try to. A remarkable movie.

Re: Julie Felix Gemini Concert

I loved Julie Felix way back when. But is it not amazing how Leonard's worldwide popularity now totally outstrips so many artists who were his early career contemporaries and who were much more popular than him at that time - I mean come on - #17 on Pollsters list of the top 50 grossing tours of 2012!

Re: PRESALE TO ALL CONCERTS (Except NY) NOW

The Paramount in Oakland now has an interactive seat map so you see exactly where your tickets are. This option did not seem to be available at 10am yesterday when the tickets first became available.

Re: History of songs performed twice in the same concert

The Royal Albert Hall - 1976 - Leonard came back for multiple encores and on the final one he asked the audience if it was ok for him to sing a song for the second time - I can't remember the song - hey
it was 36 years ago!

Re: Searching for Sugarman

Did anyone see Rodriguez profiled on 60 Minutes on Sunday? He now has the #2, 3 and 6 best selling albums on Amazon, doing better than Dylan, Van Morrison, Barbra Streisand and Taylor Swift.

I've been listening to some of the old stuff and hearing "Love Calls You By Your Name" after so long just bowled me over. Love to hear it live.
