This was a very touching experience. And certainly worth all the travelling.
The first and last time I have seen Mr Leonard Cohen perform live was way back in the 90ies. I was pregnant with my daughter, feeling sick and weak for the entire 9 months but still stood happily at the second row through the entire gig back then. I had feared this to remain my first and last opportunity to see him live but fortunately history proved me wrong. Amsterdam was truly special. I second everything said by the posters above and just would like to add that in Amsterdam he was even better than back then. A lot of people around me had to shed a tear or two because this was such a beautiful and emotional experience and so had I.
My daughter obviously was influenced by her very early first musical experience and never stopped loving Leonard's music. She who is a teenager now will be accompanying me to see him again in Berlin on October 4th and in Hamburg on October 31th.
A lot of very good pictures were posted above, thanks a lot for those. Here is one I took in Amsterdam.
