This is a most interesting question and perhaps one we ask about all great artists, especially
those we admire and cherish.
As most have have hinted on this thread, LC brings a freshness and vitality to each show,
that is unparalleled in its majesty, grace and renewal of spirit that they yield. I would argue
that attending a Leonard Cohen concert is akin to watching a Shakespeare production. The text may
stay the same but beacuse the art has universal significance, then new interpretations and awakenings
can be gleaned. The greatest tribute that can be given is that Leonard outshines "artists" who are 50-60
years younger and exhaust themslves after a mere 90 mins of performance. Just goes to show
that age is no barrier if the quality of the work if timeless.
Perhaps the best answer to this question comes from "Beautiful Losers":
"Magic never weakened. Magic never hid. Magic always ruled."
