For me it was an amazing experience. The venue is simply breathtaking and as Leonard said " What a sky" - a beautiful evening with an impressive array of sushi to vodka bars.

As for the man himself - it was more than I expected.

So for those with tickets for tonight - you lucky things!!!!

Sarah - the clock on this site is ONE HOUR earlier than real time.
I actually posted at 1141.
But if it makes you feel somehow better then believe as you will.
The show was wonderful and I did post from the site - so please rest assured!
And it will be as good tonight & tomorrow.
And the Webb sisters are....charming.
And it was good to meet some of the Irish posters from here.
Nice people and we didn't argue! :D

One caveat - the food was pretentious and hugely expensive. Bring sandwiches or find damellon's very reasonably priced food wagon, The Tartan Trailer - you can't miss that flag. As one Irish poster whom I met said: "Sushi my arse, far from it we were raised."
I agreed with his sentiment entirely.

God bless,
William

I have had to let 24 hours pass by to ensure that I was not hallucinating and tell you all I met Mr. Cohen walking discreetly in Dublin yesterday morning.

I was walking along Lr Abbey Street [for those who know Dublin!!] at 8.45am yesterday heading to work full of LC thoughts and the excitement of the weekend concerts [going Saturday and Sunday]. This debonair immaculately dressed man with a magnificent hat passed me by. I stopped dead in my tracks, did a double take and realised that I had just passed by an icon whose work I have adored for the past 40 years!!! Mr. Leonard Cohen walking quietly along a Dublin Street.

He turned into a side street and I ran after him. I introduced myself and quite honestly turned into a blubbering mess!!!. I welcomed him to Dublin, thanked him for all the enjoyment he brought into my life over the years and told him how very much I was looking forward to his concerts. He thanked me and showing great humour and concern for his Irish audience enquired of me what if it rains at the concert? --he obviously was very acquainted with the vagaries of the Irish weather!!--I told him I would get him a large umbrella and he laughed!!!--I asked him if I could help him with directions but he politely told me that 'he just likes to check out the city himself ‘. We shook hands said goodbye and I continued on into work in a daze!!!

And they say Friday 13th is unlucky!!--not for me --I will saviour those few personal words I had with Leonard yesterday for the rest of my life

Best wishes to all and enjoy the treat in store for us tonight and tomorrow night

that's a lovely story Charco, bet you walked on air all day yesterday. It must be wonderful to meet a hero and get a good response. I have always been afraid to approach anyone that I respect in case my image of them is shattered.

Fisher
I think he was - I've spoken to two people who spoke to him.
Will look out for him myself tonight.
Hope he does I Am ...I Said and Cold Water Morning.
Gather he did them last night.
