Perhaps Jarkko is sleeping a moment on the road?

A lot of those "guests" will be people like me who are registered users but haven't bothered to log in.

While you're all watching I'd like to say that Monday night in Dublin was probably the best of the 7 concerts I've seen in 2008-09. The new lines in 1000 kisses deep are quite wonderful. And somehow the great classics (Suzanne, Hallelujah, Famous Blue Raincoat) are shining brighter than ever.

DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND LEONARD COHEN'S ACCLAIMED 2009 WORLD TOUR RETURNS TO NORTH AMERICA

Los Angeles, CA - July 22, 2009 - To the delight of his legions of fans, Leonard Cohen will once again return to the U.S. this fall for the final leg of his critically acclaimed 2009 World Tour. Since taking the stage earlier this year at New York's Beacon Theatre-his first stateside performance in more than fifteen years-Mr. Cohen has enchanted audiences, earning rave reviews and sold-out concerts across the globe. The highly anticipated 15-date trek kicks off October 17th at BankAtlantic Center in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and culminates on November 13th in San Jose, CA, which is the fourth Northern California date of the tour. Tickets for the newly added concerts will go on sale beginning Monday, August 3, 2009. Additional tour information is available at http://www.LeonardCohen.com and http://www.AEGLive.com.

While the acclaimed singer/songwriter/poet is currently dazzling crowds across Europe, his fall return to the U.S. will mark the final engagements of the intimate, superbly crafted concert tour. Encore performances have been added in a number of cities, including New York for a fourth and final show; Philadelphia for one of the last concerts ever at the soon-to-be-closed Wachovia Spectrum; as well as a third concert in Chicago, IL.

The second North American leg will extend Cohen's phenomenal series of concerts, which have been overwhelmingly received both at home and abroad. Countless five-star reviews have followed the tour across the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. As the London Daily Telegraph plainly stated, it is "an extraordinary night of music," while the UK's Champion Newspapers remarked that concertgoers "were more reverential to the great man…and appeared to hang on his every word." The Liverpool Daily Post stated that Cohen "seemed to be more a man worshipping than simply singing hits…the care with which he shaped, uttered and offered each word gave the song a sacred, prayer-like quality."
Mr. Cohen's current band features Sharon Robinson and the Webb Sisters (background vocals), Roscoe Beck (musical director & bass), Neil Larsen (keyboards & Hammond B3 accordion), Bob Metzger (electric, acoustic & pedal steel guitar), Javier Mas (bandurria, laud, archilaud, 12-string acoustic guitar), Rafael Gayol (drums, percussion), Dino Soldo (sax, clarinet, dobro, keys).

In conjunction with the tour, Columbia Records released Leonard Cohen's Live In London on March 31, 2009. The CD and DVD release contains a musical chronicle of the legendary musician's historic July 17, 2008 concert at London's O2 arena.
