Re: TOWER OF SONG: MEMORIAL TRIBUTE TO LEONARD COHEN, MONTREAL

"Looks like a great line up. A DVD would be fab for those who can't make the trip to Montreal." Quote from the official announcement "... Emmy nominated and Golden Globe winning director Jack Bender (Game of Thrones, Lost, The Sopranos, Mr. Mercedes, etc.) will film the event for an upcoming special".
