The I never really left you Tour

or

or

The Leonardcohenfiles.com Tour :lol:

"The Words and Music of Leonard Cohen Tour". This would ease things up for Leonard a bit...giving him free reign to recite some poems or get someone else such as Anjani to sing a few of his songs, if he needs to give his voice a rest. Otherwise, it might end up as the "Death of a Ladies Man Tour"!

If we just look at his last 2 albums (which he didn't tour as yet) and consider the circumstances, the available tour names become quite endless... and even if we think we've listed all the obvious possibilities, LC will bring his own choice that can only be self-evident and typically ironic! 8)
Anyway, I vote for "I am here for you" (don't ask me how).
Cheers,
Luis

I imagine it will be called after one of his as yet unheard new compositions ... though given Leonard's impish humour, it wouldn't surprise me if he called it 'Something In-Between' from 'Closing Time'.

Ha. That, too, Antero. It has that 'impetus' feeling to it. It also looks great in print, and leaves lots of options for poster and other advertising graphics, too.

How about the "I Tried to Leave You Tour", which gives Leonard the option of doing another tour when he's 85. Then (assuming that he and Roshi are both still alive) he can call it the "200 Years of Leonard abd Roshi Tour"!
