"Leonard Cohen's only UK show"?

Post by golo99 » Fri Jun 19, 2009 4:06 pm

I'm a bit confused. I received an e-mail earlier today from AEG Live UK (from the address concerts@enews.aeglive.co.uk). The title of the e-mail is "Leonard Cohen's only UK show" and the e-mail consists of a poster-style image advertisining the concert in Weybridge with "Only UK Show" in big letters on the image too.

Does this mean that the Liverpool and Belfast gigs have been cancelled?

If not, what's going on? Surely this is false advertising and AEG could get in trouble for it.

Like I say, I'm a bit confused. Has anyone else had this e-mail?

Hi Golo,

I had the same email this morning and did think the same. I didnt really take too much notice as I am unable to be at any of his UK concerts - only the Tel Aviv one. Am sure that Liverpool and Belfast are NOT cancelled and it is just poor advertising so dont worry!

I received the same message and followed its link. If you read the complete info on their website, you will find a note in small print that Leonard will also give an indoor concert in Liverpool. All summer tour concerts in Europe will happen. On the other hand, the list we have now is final - no new cities will be added to the European itinerary.

Which small print corrects the "only UK concert" statement to what extent? I think they must be confusing music making with smoking? Oh yes, the great outdoors! If it happens outside its a concert. If it happens indoors its a non event.
