Enjoy, Jenny! I've only been to one (so far), but how grateful I am for that one evening with Leonard (and a few of his closest friends :lol: ). Let us know what you thought!

susanne, madeleine, misty

WOW!!
Absolutely exquisite!

I was soaring. ( Oh, yeah, that was me dancing to the tune of 'First we take Manhattan' in section 6 row c seat number 1)

During intermission spoke to a security officer sitting in my aisle and asked him if was able to give me a rough estimate how many people were attending. Without blinking an eye he said its topping 25,000.
What an evening.
Even at the entrance of the box office there was this tangible electricity flowing in the air.
They were piping Leonard Cohen's ballads thru the sound system. People were singing, humming, sharing their memories.
It was magic.
Yes, 4 encores.
Each one more thunderous than the last.


THANK YOU THANK YOU LEONARD COHEN.
Thank you Sharon Robinson! Thank you Webb sisters! Thank you the entire band!!!
Forgive me if I left anyone out - as Iam overwhelmed with gratitude for such a display of humility, brilliance and musical genius.


PS Picture will be downloaded as soon as I return home.

Only way for me to sum it up : it was a night in Leonard Cohen heaven.

Thanks, Jenny, for checking back in and giving us your reaction to your first Leonard Cohen concert. Sounds a lot like my reaction when I first saw him back in April. It's simply three hours that changes your life. Glad you loved it. :)
