OK, Wendy, you concentrate on the album release date and name of said album, I will make discreet enquiries at to, when, if, maybe, possibly, the tour might start :lol: ;-)
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2018 and over fifty years later.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.

I would like to add that if Leonard were following this thread, he would surely underline the theme expressed in song by Forum members ( and Leonard himself for a few lines!) before the start of second set in Las Vegas:


Talk of love not hate...
We're all on one road....we're only passing through....
sometimes happy, sometimes blue"

Leonard from Montreal

"I feel the management made a mistake by giving passes to a forum member for them to hand out per their discretion. The meet and greet
should have included all active forum members or none at all."

I agree!

after all Las Vegas was supposed to be his last concert.
Is it OK to read between the lines here? We are waiting with open arms :shock: :shock: :shock: ;-)

My thoughts exactly!

As I told some people already, (and I know that it sounds just like a made-up story out of jealousy or worse :D), when I was waiting in front of a venue in 2009, I saw him getting out of a car just a few meters away and although there were only two or three other people around, who went there to get some things signed, and LC seemed to be really friendly to them, I didn't go there. I can't really say why, but I didn't. Therefore I think, if there was a "next time", I wouldn't walk up to him either.
Maybe if I met him in the supermarket - to discuss the perfect color of watermelons or the perfect number of plies of toilet paper 8)

I would (of course) love the chance to pay “extra” in order to “meet and greet” our master, Leonard Cohen! The experience would be such, that I am sure it would even prolong my life by so many years – Needless to say, this would be money well spent!

In addition, I exercise, drive my car, and eat, to Leonard Cohen. This gentle man is 'pure' and outstanding - bravo!
