Cool! Sorry for having overlooked your post, Mary.
My next guess is Santa Barbara and he takes a limo for his way home.

I say Athens, Greece. Unlikely, but we've got feelings, too. :razz:

Oh tangle of matter and ghost
Oh darling of angels, demons and saints
And the whole broken-hearted host
Gentle this soul..."

So far, I notice Tokyo (bridger15), Osaka (gabri), Kyoto (somewhat_nifty) and Nagoya (majmunka).

I sometimes can't remember where my car keys are, but when I read Jarkko's 2010 challenge, I immediately remembered something Javier Mas said in an interview.

In a November '08 UNCUT article, Javier Mas mentioned "Japan" as the country that would follow Australia but it didn't happen back then. So, I thought, hey, maybe this time.
I think we’re now going to do Europe again, and then Australia and Japan after Christmas

Good catch, Wendy. As I am not allowed a second guess (though why that should stop me), I am throwing my support in with mnkyface, Honolulu.

Same UNCUT series, this time a Roscoe Beck quote
then I think we’re going to Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia

Phnom Penh, Cambodia November 27th :lol: :lol: :lol:

DrHGuy has posted a link at his site for for a blog - Andy's Cambodia -
http://blog.andybrouwer.co.uk/
The new edition of AsiaLife came into my possession today and it confirms that the first of the Mekong Sessions acts to perform in Phnom Penh will be Leonard Cohen, the 'godfather of gloom,' indoors at the Olympic Stadium on 27 November. Cohen is on a world tour and Phnom Penh will be his only SE Asia date.

A friend of mine who lives in Saigon told me about the article in AsiaLife yesterday. I found it at http://www.asialifehcmc.com/LowRes_pdfs ... aIssue.pdf
Article about Mr. Cohen's Cambodia concert on pages 48 and 49. You MUST read it!!

LEONARD COHEN COMES TO CAMBODIA
Seldom has a musician of Leonard Cohen's stature performed in Phnom Peng. Mark Bibby Jackson talks to the men responsible for bringing the groundbreaking concert to Cambodia

Well well well... the internet makes it about impossible to keep any information hidden.
Please note that the concert has NOT yet been confirmed, and some information in the article may be premature.
BUT: this is - to the best knowledge available today - not the correct answer to our Quiz!

Very nice article pironi - thanks. 8)

And - Jarkko - some of the information is premature? I am guessing that the statement "Phnom Penh will be his only SE Asia date" is perhaps incorrect- based on your saying "BUT: this is - to the best knowledge available today - not the correct answer to our Quiz!"

Phnom Penh will not be the last date? :lol:

Having read through this thread - I've found many sane and rational guesses (as well as some just hopeful).
As many of the good guesses have been taken - I feel compelled to respond with the improbable, and suggest that he 'might' duck into Peking for a knight. :)
