Advance ticket booking for Files/Forum members

The list of venues of the summer tour will be announced on this website on March 11 at 00.01 am European time - either Finnish time (UTC+2) or UTC/Greenwich Mean Time - we will let you know which time zone!

There will be a special advance ticket booking open only to the members of The Leonard Cohen Files and Forum, thanks to Leonard and his management.

Many people joined this Forum in the month of March 2008 and many joined during the subsequent months. You came here for the presales, you partook of the presales, you got your tickets, you saw your concerts. Now that you have been feed, you wish to bar the doors to everyone else?

Most of us discovered Leonard Cohen by happenstance. There was no effort involved. We heard a song and by some grace, some personal need, our lives were changed. Most of us were just a pawn in the universe's grand scheme that put us in a certain spot at a certain time and opened our ears and our heart. How does something so random make people feel entitled? There is no documentation that anyone has to produce to prove they are worthy to be here. The only credential required is the desire to experience Leonard.

When Jarkko began this Forum a tour was an impossibility. Those of you who joined on or after March 2008 know nothing of the Forum that existed without the word "tour" in every post. But before 2008 there was a body of work, Leonard's poems and songs, that was and remains worthy of being experienced by everyone. It is sacrilege to me that after all these years, after dreaming for so long that Leonard would just get a tiny amount of attention from the mainstream, that now folks here would be talking about excluding the very people we hoped would come to Leonard. Do I long for the days when no one knew his name? Yeah, I do sometimes. Sometimes so many of you babbling "tour, tour, tour" as if Leonard is some kind of aging Justin Bieber gets on my nerves. But guess what, there never would have been a 2008-2010 World Tour if there weren't so many of you. And there wouldn't be a 2012 Old Ideas World Tour if there weren't even more of you. So, thank you to everyone who came to Leonard years ago or months ago. Thank you to all of you who came to Leonard yesterday. As far as WE are concerned, you are all welcome here. Thank you to those who will come to Leonard tomorrow and well into the future. You are the people we have been waiting for.

Jarkko and Marie
Very well said.

I joined this forum in 2010, on the basis of looking for a ticket. I subsequently found lots of
information, & hopefully gave some, on other threads on this forum. My friends & I had great
seats in Lissadell ( although exiting there was a complete nightmare, but the sounds
& words of Mr Cohen, The Webb Sisters , Sharon R & the band, kept us happy).

Last Sunday, I gave details of joining this forum to another "fan" of Leonard's - one
of the so-called newbies (& he doesn't deserve to be outed).

Anyways that's enough preaching from me!

Well, Ted, as I said last time, it won't happen again.

Ladydi, thanks for the crappy start to my day. I am in fact a genuine fan, not some person hoping to make a quick buck off ebay. I have all his albums but have so far only been able to see him at the O2 in Dublin. When I heard he was playing Kilmainham again I couldn't believe my luck but didn't manage to get tickets for the first 2 dates, despite constant page refreshing...so last night I realised that I could join the forum for presale tickets. I didn't post because I thought it would increase my chances, but simply because I was excited about this morning, because I did really appreciate you sharing the information and because I wanted to share my hopes with other fans. Just because I wasn't part of the forum beforehand doesn't mean I'm less of a fan and I certainly won't be on here again if that's how you treat people. I got my two tickets anyway (not 'several prime seats in the first few rows') and I can't wait for the concert. You'll probably delete this comment anyway so it doesn't matter but I had to speak my mind. There's better ways of dealing with people. Have a nice day.

The Presale link has been posted in "Presale links and passwords" .
I just wanted to thank you as I bought my tickets in the presale first thing this morning! I have been a huge fan for years and missed his last concerts in Ireland. This will be one of the biggest highlights of the year! Thank you for making it happen :-) !!!
