A lot has happened last night while I was sleeping! Special thanks to Marie who was on the alert and posted the press release right away!
Rescheduling the whole tour has been an immense task for Robert and everybody at the tour management and AEG. They have
given priority to the most important thing, Leonard's recovery. I am sure that the next Fall will bring us a wonderful tour!

Jarkko,

I'd like to thank you for the considerate way you and the team have handled this difficult episode. Like everyone here I wish Leonard a speedy and pain-free recovery.

Are we safe to assume that tickets for the March shows will be valid for the September shows? And is there any news on refund arrangements for those of us unable to attend re-scheduled shows?

All best,
Commonweal

AEG and the tour management wanted to announce the news as soon as the new dates were fixed. The local organizers are now working on the necessary arrangements.The details will be available soon.
As far as I know, the March tickets will be valid for September, too, but if the new timing is not convenient for the ticket holder, there will be a refund. - We will have all instructions on the websites as soon as we get them.

Well Jarkko does need to Sleep once in a while lol!

yeah lizzy how does he do it I hope I am as fit when I am 75!

"For Leonard Cohen - Ken Sunshine / Tiffany Shipp, Sunshine, Sachs & Associates, shipp@sunshinesachs.com / 001 212-691-2800"

I see that Ken Sunshine is *quite* the big-wig: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ken_Sunshine

Isn't this a new PR person/company for Leonard? I've never seen the name mentioned before.

Sorry to hear that Leonard is injured, I wish him all the best for a speedy recovery. At least the waiting is over - patience may well be a virtue, but I sure don't have it! Thank you Jarkko, Marie and the management for letting us know as soon as was possible. Here's to the autumn tour!

pssst - anyone wanna buy some non-refundable Eurostar tickets? Lille is lovely in March I hear... :lol:

Many thanks for the news; so good to know its better than many feared. Best of luck for the recovery and best of luck with the new schedule - both for those of us with new arrangements to make and to those with a fresh opportunity to get to one of the new shows.

Here's to a return of harmony to the forum!

Thank you Marie and Jarkko for your patience with us. I`m sorry to hear that Leonard is injured but I`m glad that he is getting good care.

Dear Leonard, get well soon! Keep yourself warm (especially your back and toes), eat well, spend time with your family and friends, laugh much, and rest, rest and rest! We all love you and we will wait until you are completely recovered.

With warm and healing wishes,
Viivi

Thanks for posting this news still before the weekend.
It seems that all that bending and kneeling has done no good indeed ! I wish Leonard a full and "take your time" recovery.
As to the postponed concerts, I certainly hold on for Lille but I already cancelled my hotel reservation for Strasbourg while I'm planning now to go to Marseille instead. Obviously there are no decent seats left anymore (I only need one), the best you can have right now is on the 15th row.
So if anyone has one spare ticket in the first ten rows, or isn't able to make it on the new date, please let me know !

BTW, I wonder if they are planning "to do something" within the eight days left between Lille and Katowice.
Belgium is very near ... :)
