I thought fellow Cohenites might be interested in a Tweet this morning, (Tuesday 15 Jan 2019) from one of Aussie's best known writers (latest book on Mutiny on the Bounty), commentators, ex Rugby Union player and Republican! He's nominated Leonard's first concert in the Hunter Valley as the greatest concert he's ever attended and Karen Middleton, one of Aussies most respected political journos responded immediately.

Hi Greg,
I also saw him at the Sydney concert November 16th, 2013. He was a couple of rows behind me, unmistakable in his bandana.

Hi Greg,

I was at that remarkable Hunter Valley concert at Bimbadgen Winery on January 31st 2009 that Peter FitzSimons refers to (though I didn't run into him). 8)

It was certainly the best concert of my life, but for reasons I won't go into. ;-)

Cheers,
Andrew :D
