Just finished chasing the sheep around the hills and desperate for a bit of relaxation.

Whats this I hear about Leonard Cohen heading for the remote outback of northern Scotland?

What do you mean its too far away?

What about that well known wee "toon" of Aberdeen with its Airport and its Exhibition centre?

One of the biggest cities in the United Kinngdom with excellent road links to Bonnie Dundee.

Think a wee outback with a surrounding population of about 500,000 could attract a Leonard Cohen concert?

My girlfriend and I are busting our heads in thinking what to do this summer. We live in Copenhagen and are thinking about going to Berlin to see him. However if he's playing in Denmark, for instance Roskilde Festival or more hopefully some other venue it would be a great amount of money to save for us poor student 8)

I'm all for the way it is going with the progress of showing which dates where and when. Also I'm aware that the list as mentioned probably does not contain Denmark now or later. However this is still a mere guess for me.

Therefore I hope for just a small hint to help us choose before all the good seats are taken or the Berlin show is sold out. Nothing final or anything confirmed, just a hint on whether there might (with the stress on might) be a show here.

I know this is somewhat annoying and impatiently. But please, this is not to sound ungrateful or anything. Just a little handout for a confused and stressed stranger ;-)

Thanks.

Tue

Aberdeen would be AMAZING.

I hope there's even a slightest chance of this happening, I don't think Leonard could get a better reception anywhere in the UK :)

This is good news for many:
Looks like things are moving to a direction many members in the East have been hoping...
Some gaps in the tour itinerary are being filled with a couple of cities that balance the European routing in a very nice way.

We will know more soon!

Is the announcement on the 4th May, the last for this cycle of concerts?

No, just one concert to be added to the summer itinerary. More on the way.

Don't know if it has been "speculated" elsewhere, but, according to this (sorry, french only): http://www.venise1.com/concerts-a-venise-7137.html Leonard COULD be in Venice on August 3rd. Hope it helps... :D

This tentative date in Venice has not been confirmed. The itinerary for the rest of the summer tour is still in progress, and the dates will be announced one by one after every detail has been nailed.

Jarkko, I don't suppose you know if there is any chance / any rumours of a possible concert in London? Am looking to buy tickets as a present for my Dad and will get tickets for Weybridge... but will hang on for a few weeks if theres any chance of a show in London, Any info (or even a guess) would be great :) Cheers!

London is not in any lists I have got. There will be more concerts in the summer & fall, but according to the recent development they will be in the Mediterranean area and/or in the East. However, after all the additions I don't want to say anything definitive, but don't interpret this as a hint; it isn't.

Is that Eastern Eorope, the Far East or Eastern U.S.?
