Tours Down Under over the Years

Postby PinkColt » Sat Oct 30, 2010 11:21 pm

Hi from NZ just went and saw Leonard a few days back - tooooo incredible, writing a review, can anyone please tell me how many times he has been in NZ over the many years of his gracious artistry - I'm guessing only twice 2009 and 2010 but I may be so wrong please let me know

Hi PinkColt,

Welcome to the forum. Most people are asleep who could answer your question fully. As far as I know Leonard was also in Australia in 1980 and 1985.

Here is a link to him singing Coming Back To You Midday Show with Ray Martin (says 1988 but I think it's 1985) -

There also was an interview with Mike Walsh in 1985 on YouTube but it is gone now. He tells about the meaning of his writing Dance Me To The End Of Love.
He has also visited here in Adelaide for the Adelaide Arts Festival but I can't remember the year but I did see it on TV then. It may have been to promote his Book Of Longing.

Thanks Bev.
The San Sebastian video I had seen, but I don't recall ever watching the Australia video.

8th Melbourne, Comedy Theatre
9th Melbourne, Comedy Theatre
11th Adelaide, Apollo Stadium

1985 Tour in Australia
May
21st Brisbane, Concert Hall, Cultural Center
24th Sydney, Entertainment Center
25th Melbourne State Theatre, Victorian Arts Center
26th Melbourne State Theatre, Victorian Arts Center

I hope you find this helpful. :)
