Surely the "very high profile opening act" isn't Leonard? Was hoping for somewhere a bit smaller should Scotland be graced with his presence.

Raises the question of whether Leonard is now a ' very high profile act' to the public in general.
Maybe he is ?
Leonard's work resonates

Speculation in today's press is that the Hydro's high profile opening act will be none other than ............ Rod Stewart.

To our best knowledge it will not be Leonard.

I was gazing wistfully at my "Book of Mercy" T-shirt this morning
and noted in the mists of time that Leonard played Cardiff. How
wonderful, not just because this is an hour from my hometown.

Do hope that other venues in the UK might be considered. London
is great but so is Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, South-West etc.
And, of course, Cardiff.

Who knows what the future may bring! But am sure will be
present for another "spellbinding" performance somewhere
on this blessed globe :)

Just to lety you know, I notice that Ticketamaster.ie is selling the Belfast-Dublin ticket for one of the 2 date of Leonard in Dublin, so I suppose that there will be no concert in Belfast!!

Just had the following notifications from SongKick but haven't seen confirmation elsewhere yet:

Leeds Arena - 5 September
London O2 - 14 September

Sounds promising though....
Cheers,
