Hi Jarkko,

do you by any chance know, whether Mr. Cohen also is returning to Denmark - I hope so much, he will....

Let's wait for the final list. Probably the Northern countries are not included - the route takes Leonard now mostly to Southern Europe.

Would be nice if the ticket selling websites would be 'sorted out' by the time the new schedule will be announced. Really can't be bothered with them anymore as it's always so frustrating, but unfortunately there seems no other way to buy tickets.

Well, the Danelaw region might count as genuinely "northern"; I am not so sure about the rest of the UK... ;-)

But Germany is not in the south, it's north!

That's why I guess also 1 gig in Switzerland! Zurich or on a Festival elsewhere I guess/hope! :D

Been to the Kölnerena once, and I wonder if you were there, too. That was Helloween 2003 but not for a Halloween Party but for this man!
Is it Halloween Jack by any chance :p

Amrei,

no, I do not find that at all - I was just replying to Foxwood; the "Danelaw" region of the UK being the historical name of that part of Great Britain where Danish, not anglo-Saxon, laws (and with them, language, customs etc.) were predominant in the Early Middle Ages, i.e. mostly Eastern and Northern England, really - so in fact not too god for Yorkshire people like Foxwood, if it comes to Leonard not going "north" these days! :) I was not even talking about Denmark proper... So my remark should rather be read as a compliment to the Danes, who then brought the Anglo-Saxons an important part of their culture... ;-)

nice reference!
though isn't mid-70's Bowie a bit too lowbrow for Leonard's disciples?!

Hi Womanfromaroom,

I was only teasing ;-) because of the Danish reference. And because Yorkshire unfortunately not really is further north than Denmark :( .... which means (and You could already read it in Jarkko´s answer), that there probably won´t be any concerts in Scandinavia :cry: :cry: :cry:

Fortunately, I got tickets for Berlin. :razz:

Maybe one could hope for a concert in Hamburg or Hannover... that must be far enough south ...
