Re: PULA, CROATIA (Aug 2), PRESALE NOW!

looking forward to get to know Croatia Ah yes, happy memories of holidays in what was then Jugoslavija. Actually Pula didn't have a lot going for it except the Arena - it was hot, crowded and "touristy" even then and smaller Porec further up the coast was much nicer, but there were some lovely excu...

The UK concerts will have to be over by September 19th., Zimmy - if not, those organising the Galway walking weekend beginning on that date will be very upset!

Re: What happens until the Summer tour?

Lightasabreeze and Evie, you have a great record of long-standing loyalty to LC.
I hope you will be rewarded with many UK concerts....eventually.

(Glad you enjoyed Kilmainham, Evie :D )

Re: What happens until the Summer tour?

Well, I'm in the 40 year club as well Alan, I'd never have thought it! :lol: Maybe you should start a "40 Year Club" thread on the forum! Yes, from what I read of LA I'd prefer Kilmainham as my final LC concert - the mood was just so joyful. (And all the coming and going is not as intrusive at an o...

Re: What happens until the Summer tour?

I'm fortunate I have many happy memories of seeing Leonard in concert over (whisper it ! ;-)) 40 years. Now there's a pedigree - one of very few on the forum who have been LC supporters from the Isle of Wight on ! Zimmy, I think you have well earned the right to express your opinion ( "fed up waiti...

Re: What happens until the Summer tour?

What's "negative" about saying "lucky people" ? Envious yes, negative no. The last leg of the previous tour was in N. America, so I tuned in after Christmas hoping for the rest of the European dates, and found instead a "Major Announcement" of another N. American tour, properly presented with all th...

Re: What happens until the Summer tour?

Leonard is in his 79th year. I hope he has a good rest so he is strong and fighting fit for the next tour. Wendy Would that it were so! None of us would begrudge him the well-deserved rest. But now we know what happens until the Summer tour - a full N.American Spring tour - lucky people! Meanwhile,...

Re: Bruce Springsteen Tour 2013

I was going to take a break from him this year but then he announced Cardiff (my closest city), so not-going would have been a bit crazy. Yes, Diane, same with me! Couldn't resist ... The sound was fine in the RDS, but then that's an "intimate" venue! Anyway I'm happy to have secured tickets withou...

Bruce Springsteen Tour 2013

Delighted to hear Springsteen is coming to Kilkenny - now there's a venue I can get to without expensive flight/accommodation costs. Plenty of notice, too, for concerts at the end of July - not so for LC concerts, unfortunately. So I am going to raid my LC kitty for Brucie! After all a bird in the h...

Re: Are ticket prices too high?

Are ticket prices too high? What a silly question!
How long is a piece of string...

If you have loads of money, no they're not.
if you have very little money, yes they are.
It's all relative, as Einstein would say.

Re: Hope for Europe? (Several threads merged)

Poor Leonard, I know he would love to perform in every country in our Universe but that is not possible. What a charmingly naive view of the music business! I wonder how much say Leonard, or any other performing artist, has in choosing venues. If he said " I would love to go to X " would it happen?...

Re: Tried to exchange tickets

Not only some crumbs..but a cake. Promising. :D Ann: A concert in Ireland would be "la cerise sur le gâteau". Hi hazey - no cherry this time ! :( And the cake will be on the table for another month - might have gone off a bit by then. Might check in then to see what slices are offered to Europeans....

Re: Tried to exchange tickets

***there is a cake reserved and waiting on the table for the Europeans... Just be patient... / Jarkko***

A whole cake? Great! Sounds as if it's baked and ready to serve soon, so!
(Must be patient...must be patient...must be......)

Hope one little slice of it is reserved for Ireland!

Re: Tried to exchange tickets

Had rows 1 and 2 in Toronto last month, but to the side. I think the best seats I had were at Lissadell, row JJ and Leonard was a dot on the stage. Depends a lot on the crowd too. I wouldn't go back to Wembley even if I got front row centre, but would take anything if he went back to Sligo. (I know...

Re: Hope for Europe? (Several threads merged)

The first US gigs are in two months and the last three, from now. The first European gigs are 5 months away, and the last more than 8. That's all very well, Jarkko, but only the "leisured classes" or the self-employed can follow a tour in the Spring. Most ordinary workers in Europe get their holida...
