Hi Hydriot,

Being one of the two ladies you referred to as handing the huge bouquet of roses to Leonard, I must do justice to the other lady and correct that it was she who had been thoughtful enough to get the beautiful roses for him and who managed to attract Leonard's attetion. Thanks for this! I only recognized the moment and rushed to hand my own little present to Leonard - a sprig of rosemary to cherish the golden voice. (Though having just checked Wikipedia for potential medicinal use of rosemary, neurodegenerative diseases and lice are listed as the top indications, moreover allergic reactions were mentiond as undesirable side effects... I sincerely wish my little present only did what it was supposed to do!) Leonard naturally received the roses with a hearty smile and a humble bow, only after a split second he seemed to realise the [miserable] herb was also ment for him. But then he kindly held it in his hands with respect, next to the hundred roses, til the end of the tune. Let it symbolize simplicity.

Thank you, Leonard, again for the unforgettable moments with you, the band, and your songs. And many thanks to all the new friends I made, great to meet you all and finally have faces to the "famous" names. Hope to meet you again, perhaps Hydra next summer. Special thanks to Jarkko and Eija for being there, I look forward to meeting you again - in Finnish!

Miia

Good to see you also Marcus

On the long stem rose front, Leonard did pick one off the stage (I can’t recall the song but it was during the encores), and held it a while. The video crew zoomed in on it at one point, and whilst I couldn’t make a positive ID it was similar to those seen at the Troubadour!

Hi astranger,

The Webb Sisters did one quick, effortless flip during "The Future". It gave a nice little added flourish to the show.

you are so right hup "white girls dancing " thats not dancing it was so not LC style

No, Gregor, I don't think so! It is just so not a certain image of what LC style should be like, according to some people, but I don't necessarily agree: I liked the cartwheels, they lighten up the atmosphere, especially when Leonard later introduces the Webb sisters and specifically points out the "acrobatics"... ;-)

Thanks,
It was the best I could manage with my tiny camera. I had great seats, with thanks to Jarkko's link. I was there both nights and I think Tuesday just edged ahead of Monday. I was glad to hear The partisan, I love this arrangement. I thought things were a bit subdued (on stage, that is) on Monday, although as previous posters have mentioned he is not introducing the band as much as those two unforgettable nights he played for me in Dublin and 10,000 people listened in. Now if he had just played Avalanche. Oh well, its a very minor complaint. I never thought I would ever get to see him sing, not to mind being lucky enough to do so 4 times.
