Love your videos Sturgess. As this is my first shot at taking a video, mine are a little jumpy. And I'm having trouble uploading more. I'll keep trying though. Here's two that I did manage to upload:

Yeah Lorraine!!!! I just discovered your videos on YouTube and was coming over to post them. You capture some beautiful facial and hand expressions in "Hallelujah" - makes me cry. And Leonard was all about focused performance that night. "The Gypsy's Wife" - what a gorgeous arrangement of that song! Wonderful performance and Dino's solo is exquisite. I was blessed to be there.

Oh - and yes!! You must persevere!! In uploading what else you have. Haha! :lol:

Thanks!

Hi Sturgess

Been meaning to post more on this thread. Had a fab time in Philly and really enjoyed the concert, had a great view. I have loads of photos and videos to upload (once I find out how). I haven't got round to it yet because I have been wiped out since I got back (got a cold and between the jetlag and everything else) but hope to do so soon :) We will continue to immortalise that great night ;-)

Well done Lorraine on uploading yours. You have a far superior camera to me so i don't expect mine to come out so well. But I will post whatever I have.

And I do have most of The Flood (except for the first word or two) Sturgess - and half of Anthem!

Thanks Lorraine - you have a terrific camera! Excellent sound and the zoom is so smooth - right into wonderful detail! Keep 'em coming - if you have more. :D

Aren't we lucky that no one bothered us about video at the Tower (security). I was not expecting that. :lol: Actually, no one bothered me about video at the Academy of Music in May either. When Leonard comes back to Philadelphia, either the Tower or the Academy - perfect. :D :lol: 8)

Trish - hope you are feeling better and I'm looking forward to seeing all your pictures and video! Such a wonderful concert.

*One of the hundreds of Leonard Cohen videos I took over the years. I'm posting my best ones so everybody can enjoy them. As a huge fan, I tried attending as many Leonard concerts as I could afford. After meeting and interacting with Leonard a few times, he actually became fond of me and went on to give me many tickets to his sold-out concerts -- along with hundreds of autographs, drawings, pictures, and whatever else I ever asked. I'm sure my tenacity, peculiarity, and me being so much younger than most of his fans must've intrigued him. I'm forever grateful for his kindness and patience with me. I miss him dearly. Took me two years after his passing just to be able to go through these videos without tearing up, it hurts not having him around.

All videos were shot by me, Mike Fulop. The videos are posted on my business YouTube page, but they're unrelated to it. I rarely sold or traded any Leonard Cohen autographs, only the occasional double or damaged item.
