Hi!
Do you know if Leonard Cohen will return to Italy this year to give more concerts?
Bye

We don't expect him to do that.

I just noticed an exchange on the Webb Sisters' facebook page that indicates they will be in Italy this year:

Giuseppe Crisafulli Can you tell me if you will do with Leonard Cohen concert in Italy in 2010?
Sorry for my English! I admire you very much ... I really like you

I would suggest Leonard and the band the beautiful city of Verona.
There is a big ancient open air ARENA which would be a wonderful location for a Concert ;-)
Dreaming is allowed...isn't it ;-) ????

Hi Andrea

A concert in the beautiful arena of Verona would just be heaven. If this happens I will definitely see you there!!

Hi Andrea,

I can visualise the concert in the areana. I sang there with my choir at the famous Verona choral festival so I can recommend it highly as a venue. Oh what a show that would be. Leonard and the band on a balmy Verona evening singing to the heavens. I am there already!!!!

In song. Paula

Can't believe you sang there! Amazing! That's a far cry from Parnell Square! What an experience, you'll have to fill me in!

I am amused by, but enjoying, the speculation about additional concerts. If they were to go ahead, I must agree that the Verona Arena would offer a spectacular venue. Back in the Summer of 1997 my wife and I attended a memorable performance of "Carmen" at this venue. The natural ampitheatre provides fantastic acoustics which would suit Leonard and the band tremendously. I might even be tempted to sit further back on the old stone steps. The view is excellent from nearly all vantage points. It gets my vote.

Hello Italy,

I just read at a Dutch holidaywebsite about Umbria that Leonard will be (among others) at the Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia, which will be held from 9-18 july 2010.

Link: http://umbrie.web-log.nl/umbrie/

Wish you all a wonderful summer.
