Thanks all for your reports/ tweets/ photos/ links.
Maarten, you're a goody bag of awesome photos & vids too! You should open shop with Albert, call it 'Steady Hands Productions' ;-)

'Come Healing' sent goosebumps up my spine. 'Save the last dance' is such a brilliant closing number.
'Alexandra Leaving' is simply mesmerizing.

A fine night indeed. And this is just the beginning...
Let this week and tour unfold.

Many thanks to Maarten and the other contributors for the excellent photos and videos.

I was not going to read any concert reports until I had been to Dublin - but I didn't quite manage to last that long!

It looked a wonderful concert and I am very jealous of you all.

Thanks Mr. Cohen for all the beautiful songs you give us.

Rode from England on motorbike to Ghent on sunday. Returned today. Attended the Cohen concert................superb.
The introduction of the violin to the tour is amazing. The sound quality was brilliant, my view from the cheaper seats at the side was terrific. 4 hours of great music :D

My only complaint is with the organizers. 50c to use the toilet ! Burgers at 9 Euro ! Plastic cups of beer 25cl at 3 Euro !
Even the O2 london does not charge that much.

But, nevertheless, Leonard was amazing. He really was enjoying himself. Love the new set list.

Thank you all for your postings, photos, links etc. Like everybody we look back to a remarkable concert with very special moments and we´re delighted that Leonard is back on the road. On the other hand we´re a little bit surprised that almost no one seems to miss Dino. We did last night, more and more after each song. We missed his virtuosity, his energy on the right wing of the stage and the diversity of the "instruments of wings", that emphasized the special character of every song. He is great in "painting with sounds", and we gladly remember him sometimes using loud and jazzy colours and sometimes smooth and subtle strokes, always perfectly integrated in Leonard´s masterpieces. We are very sorry that he had to step aside. :(
