I was there on Sunday and again I was very moved. Like the silent, touched audience.
As a fan since the early seventies and after once seen him life in Brussels (a very long time ago) and in Antwerp ("I am your man"), I feared he would never come to Europe again.
And now he serves us so generously!
Bruges was intimate, heart-moving, warm and unique.
In Brussels the advantages were the seats (not unimportant for +50) and the full view, that lacked for many in Bruges. It was also great to hear "Famous Blue Raincoat", not performed in Bruges.
The success of "The Partisan", of course brought intensely , was also due to the French, I think, in a partly French-speaking town.
I was very happy to introduce my son and his girl-friend to my idol since more than 30 years.
They also enjoyed the concert deeply.
I am happy his message seems to become more universal than ever an that he himself seems to enjoy the wide approval of soulmates.

Thank you, Leonard.

Hi everyone,

To Ayllina : you posted a message on this thread on 22nd of oct asking if there does exist a possibility to watch the 19 Oct Btussels concert and Am I wrong to say that I later saw someone replying that a site does exist, giving the link to access ? At the moment I just can not find this link which I have not activated, nor the reply. Would you be kind enough to put some light on this ?

Hi everybody,
Terve Jarkko,

Please find below hyperlinks to two articles (French blogs) that sum up very well the two concerts in Brussels.

19 October: ... ional.html
=>Enjoy it!
=>A sentence worth highlighting: "Je suis anéantie, terrassée par le poids de mes propres joies et de mes propres chagrins passés ou à venir." (I am wiped out, brought down by the weight of my joys and my sorrows, be them gone or still to come).

20 October: ... e-concert/
=> Some beautiful pictures!
=> A sentence worth highlighting:
"La quasi totalité de l'industrie Belge de la musique était dans la salle ce lundi. Même les photographes qui d'habitude rentrent chez eux après les trois chansons réglementaires de prises de vues étaient restés. “C'est le genre de concert qui construit la légende du lieu…”."
(translation: Most of the Belgian music industry representatives were in the hall on Monday. Even the photographers, who usually go home after taking shots during the three prescribed songs, had decided to stay. It is thanks to this kind of concerts that a venue becomes legendary.
