Re: Who will appear in the tribute concert?

Performers at Tower of Song: Memorial Tribute to Leonard Cohen, Montreal

I am wondering when news of other performers might trickle out. I am hoping that Peter Gabriel will show up.

One of the VIP packages for Leonard back in the day included a handkerchief. I am going to bring that along--I will need it!

Re: MONTREAL: TICKETS, LINKS AND PASSWORD

Thank you Jarrko and Marie. I am very happy with my seats!

This will be a singular experience. It will be interesting and exciting to learn about the "much more"" to the lineup that will likely be slowly revealed in the coming weeks.

Re: Happy Birthday Leonard!!

Leonard, I wish you the happiest of birthdays, and hope that you are experiencing as much joy and wonder as you have shined on us.

You are only one year away from having that cigarette.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Oakland, March 2 & 3, 2013

A nickel to anyone who can recall the song or give a better description of what he was doing!
