It's wonderful, I'll be there.
Now it's time to sleep and dream about the front row.
Soon I can see if my dream comes true....

Who last summer at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp was, will agree: Leonard Cohen is an absolute topartiest.Leonard Cohen wore when his (now) legendary concert to singer Yasmine who just deceased, and knew all those present that evening very deep touch with his flawlessly produced classics.

Cohen drops this summer, exclusively for the Benelux to Ghent, not just one of the friendliest cities in the country but also the proud possessor of the title of UNESCO Creative City of Music '.

On Friday, August 20, he will at the historic St. Peter's Square for a unique concert playing a seated audience. Whose last tour schedules Cohen a closer look, the man knows that like to play a historic location. Leonard was playing the last few years in open air at the Piazza San Marco (Venice), the IMMA / Royal Hospital Kilmainham (Dublin) and the Piazza Napoleone (Lucca). The redesigned St. Peter's Square is the next location in this impressive list. It houses not only the Lady St. Peter and St. Peter's (with its unique vineyards) but also lies in the shadow of the Book.

About the emotional impact of his performances are no doubts. All media will be fully agree: the old fox still has a golden voice, flawless krijtpak, gray hat and a disarming smile. His setlist is currently a fine selection of his work very high. A look at the song titles "Is not No Cure for Love, Bird on a Wire, Who By Fire, Tower of Song, Hallelujah, I'm your man, Take this Waltz, So Long, Marianne, If It Be Your Will or I Tried to leave you and you know that Field Commander Cohen also St. Peter's Square with a smile will pack.

To the historic character of this action in full play, has chosen to only provide seating. Thus everyone can fully enjoy the beautiful scenery of this concert. The only disadvantage of this arrangement is that the number of tickets is limited. A fan warned is forearmed.

On presentation of concert ticket you can use the free shuttle buses to and from parking Line Flanders Expo! Line sets a maximum number of shuttle buses to the concert-goers quickly back and forth before and after the concert.

Thanks to the city of Ghent.
