Re: Sad news: Arlene Dick has passed away

Oh gosh I am so very sorry to hear of Arlenes passing. She is, and will be, sorely missed. I never got to actually meet her (though were were both in Las Vegas) but from interacting with her here and elsewhere it was obvious what a plucky and lovely lady she was. I just love that video that she took...

Re: Where will our 2014 Event be?

We're delighted that so many of you have been so enthusiastic about Cork and that it has been chosen as the next Leonard Cohen Event city! We're really looking forward to welcoming many old and new friends to Ireland and I'm especially excited to welcome you all to my home city in 2014, the rebel ci...

Re: Where will our 2014 Event be?

Well as I said, I'm really happy to have everyone over to Cork, and I've now got the support of Albert (IrishAl) Marie (IrishMar) Bernadine (tinderella) and Paula (Aloe Vera) in Dublin, and Gwen (Musicmania) in Kildare to form a core organisation group within the country plus Ruth (Somewhat_Nifty) i...

Re: Where will our 2014 Event be?

Hi Jarkko, With regards to North American travellers I know there are no direct flights from North America to Cork but twice I've flown via London to the US as it's usually not any more expensive than going through Dublin or Shannon but obviously a bit longer. For example when I flew to Las Vegas I ...

Re: Where will our 2014 Event be?

I'm going to suggest Cork, Ireland for the 2014 event. It's not as expensive as Dublin (IMO) and there are lots of places to visit in and around. There is Blarney, and the famous stone, Midleton with it's Jameson distillery, Kinsale, a noted foodie town, Cobh or Queenstown where the Titanic left fro...

Having been to a fair few concerts now at this stage I would have loved to be able to thank him in person for coming back to Ireland but alas, while I did see him walking into his hotel with Sharon Robinson, it would have been wrong to interrupt him. Good on you, burningviolin - I'm sure the tempta...

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEONARD!

Happy Birthday Leonard Cohen!

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall gently upon you
Until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

A Celtic blessing.

All good things,
BV

Why no more set lists?

I asked one of the crew for a set list after the Wembley concert but he said no. Just curious as to why set lists are not being handed out after the concerts anymore?
