:( :( :cry: yet sadness. I hope the dates will be added and some will also be concerts in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe. Czech, Poland, Slovakia, Austria, Slovenia, Romania, Croatia, Greece ... wait! PLEASE!! In the summer I will have a significant birthday, a concert in Prague will be a wonderful gift! ;-)

I've already booked my room at a 4* hotel 300 metres away from the venue in Madrid on the 5 oct 2012! GETTING EXCITED!!! I'll try to get 1st row as in Lisbon 2009
-Madrid 1993 (standing up face to face to Leonard, leaning my arms upon the stage (no cams, no security line), my hands touched Cohen's feet!) (talked to Cohen for 20 minutes after concert!!!)
-Lisbon 2009 (1st row!!)
-Madrid 2012 (1st row centred facing Leonard!!)
-FOREVER

Yeah - big UK shaped hole on 7-10 September.

Just a thought, but I have Bestival tickets for 7-9 September. Either he gets announced for Bestival and I'm the happiest man alive, or he puts in a couple of London dates in which case the joy turns to tears.

One question for the super-fans on here. Which of the venues in Europe were particularly special last time round? I only caught London and Moscow - happy to go to pretty much any of these places announced today, but would like somewhere memorable.

Hi Im new to these boards, could some one tell me where best place to get tickets from are for Dublin? Will there be a pre sale I missed out a couple of years ago and do not want to miss out again. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

What a beautiful summer this is going to be ...

Bev - did we not read an interview recently, where LC said that a new world tour would last something like two years?
Look at the dates - plenty of space for Australia still :) ... and Singapore :P

Yours,
Amrei

Paris Olympia has got to be the one - it is a tiny 3,000 seat venue right in the heart of the city. It also has great history - Stones, Beatles etc all played there and when it was under threat of demolition it was saved by Edith Piaf, so it kind of became her theatre.

We went to one of the LC shows there and loved it. Hope to again ...

These are fantastic news. I have seen Leonard only once, 2 years ago in Strasbourg. It was without a doubt the greatest concert experience I ever had, and I've seen quite a lot of artists.

Since then I have been waiting for this moment. I'm so happy I will be able to see him again on stange.

I just have a question about ticket sales: What does "Presale for members" mean? Forum members or members of the official Fanclub?

Thanks!

Hi Suzanne,

I´m happy that Leonard is back on the World Tour, I'm going, to jump out of the skin with joy. I am extremely happy :D . My life, got spark 8).Concert in the Czech Republic will certainly also be in some of the other designated States.But I am worried about Slovakia. Although have refurbished ice rink, which fits around 8,000 to 10,000 people, so I would imagine you that there held a concert.
If it not a concert in Slovakia, so I go elsewhere, surely!


*** I will try to find something from the agency, which was in 2009 and 2010, the organizers of the concert. ;-)

What does "Presale for members" mean? Forum members or members of the official Fanclub?
There is no other fan club than this Forum of ours. You will find presale threads in this tour section.
Just log-in, find the presale you are looking for, and use the link to the ticket seller. The link will be visible at the very moment the presale opens, not before.
We may have passwords, too, which will be answers to tricky questions about Leonard and his music. IThe use of passwords is up to the local concert organizers.

Ok, fortunately Cohen doesn't have a fanclub where you need to pay in order to be officially considered as a fan.

Thanks for your help! :)
