This is lovely - I'm guessing that the video is from Gothenburg - there is no indication where it is from.

EDITING - this video is not from Gothenburg and not from Sligo. It is actually one of Albert Noonan's videos that someone else has uploaded. The video is from Dublin O2, July 20, 2009.

It's definitely not from last Thursday's show as 1,000 Kisses Deep was not included in Goteborg. In fact, I think the only time this recitation has been included in the setlist for any of the 2010 shows (so far) was the second Sligo concert on August 1. Maybe the video is from Sligo?

Thanks ! I was just in the setlist thread looking - and you are absolutely correct. So far - Sligo II is the only place this has been performed. I'll post it in that thread but leave the link here as well - it is quite beautiful and does contain extra verses.

What is the recipe of a two-days unlimited happiness? A marvellous Leonard Cohen concert in Gothenburg and a beautiful sunny day on the lovely Gothenburg Islands. I enjoyed both of them! ;-)

It was my third, and undoubtedly the most beautiful concert! He was amazingly strong and visibly happy to be in Gothenburg. Plenty of magical moments on the stage, gripping dedication on Take this walz to a Swedish poet with adorable Leonard dancing walz by oneself on the stage. Unforgettable Gipsy wife and Who by fire – great, great Javier!

Touching Anthem at the and of the first part and dizzying encores. Nearly 4 hours of miracle (with 15 mins of delay and a „few minutes” of intermission.)
Three new songs: Darkness, Feels so good, Born in chains, unusual Singer must die – strong, strong interpretations. I’m your man maybe less strong than usual.

The band was magnificent as allways – but I wached just Leonard from my third row seat. He was so close that seemed to singing only for me. :D :D :D :D :D

Swedish audience just loved him. At the begining it seemed to me a little bit cold but Eva explained that this is the swedish manner: a huge respect on the part of the audience.
But at the and they did not want to leave him – and he did not want to leave them. It was a kind of magical liaison between Leonard and the appreciative audience.

I feel very lucky and grateful to have been there.

And one more thing: Leonard Cohen Forum People are very very nice people! We had a meeting just before the show and I could know other lovely new people from the forum:
Marc, Hanne, Rachel (Holydove) make, Liam (Liamberney), Kath, Arlene (bridger 15) Marsha (friscogrl) AND EVA (courage) WHO ORGANIZED EVERYTHING AND I WANT TO THANK HER KINDNESS!
Imagine: she knew that my plane delayed more than 3 hours, she came to the airport, I was already on the airport bus, she just jumped on, picked me down and brought me to my hostel by car.
Same after the concert: it was rainy and she (and her husband) droped me back! THANK YOU EVA, THANK YOU INDEED!

Plenty of memories, nice people – a real comunity of people loving a MAN!!! Thank you friends.

Friday morning was a lovely sunny day and I started to tour around the pretty Göteborg Islands. I was alone with the beautiful last night memories in my heart, I walked all the day, enjoyed the delightful Swedish wildlife: open air, blue sea, green grass, sheeps, charming red wine-colored cottages, blackberries, rocks, and silence, silence, with Leonards’notes in my mind.

Next stop: Firenze. Oh my God: what a summer! :D

In Berlin, struggling for the past three days to upload my Gothenburg files with yet a 3rd laptop rental. The Radisson Hotel has been terrific trying to find a suitable laptop. They finally found one that is workable, however it has a German style keyboard but the underlying operation is a QWERTY. For instance I have to remember that a z is a y and a y is a z and the @ key is somewhere else. I have a headache, really

I have stories and pics from before the concert. And stories and pics, including another Dino and red socks report from after the concert. But as Mod Marie always says, business first.

Getting an actual set list during a frenzied scene was thanks to the wonderful Mickey Sullivan, musician and guitar technician, with his big smile.

I was extremely impressed to see 40 songs on the set list that the troupe has rehearsed and ready to perform on cue. We heard LC calling out songs a few times. The actual order of the songs at the concert was slightly different and we have Liam Berney to thank for his accurate report posted right after the concert. And in another thread, it was reported they are rehearsing yet other new songs. Wow. It is incredible to fathom.

Anyway, I am going to upload and post one youtube at a time because transmission conditions here are not the greatest.
btw. I sat in the first row off to the side behind Dino. The stage left camerman was in my sightline the whole time. Also the first row was quite a way back from the stage, about the equivalent of 10 rows.
