Please, never show these photos to the police. Not sure they could understand. We had a very good brandy but only one glass. It would have been a pleasure to share it with both of you. Next time maybe.
For the police, you'll have to negociate that with Izielle, the pictures are on her camera. As far as sharing next time, I'm all for it, especially for it to be a next time! I'm starting to feel like a junky in need of more Cohen, is it just me?

Hello dear friends!

Finally, I am back at home and back to earth! Though I think, I hope, I am a transformed person post-LC Tour 2008. As promised, here is a scan of the setlist that I and two fanboys were graced with by a thoughtful roadie breaking down the set when Darling and I were unable and unwilling to leave the stage area after the May 31st show. Notice the sacred duct tape at the top of the setlist. If the fanboys are right, I have the list that the sublime Webb sisters and the one and only Sharon Robinson used. Nice!

If you want a full size version that you can print out, pm me and I will send it to you (1.4mb).

To Jarkko, and all forum workers and members, thank you for this wonderful community. Meeting up with Darling was the chantilly on my LC sundae.

Anyone has anything, recordings, videos, pictures from either of the two shows? There's a lot around from the other shows, but it's not the same when it's not from 'ours'...
I've got a couple mp3s (willing to share) but would sure like more!
Thanks.

I found this on the french forum:

edit: I realized it has already been posted before, but not being at home, I had only taken a quick look at them. Too much emotion I guess...

An article in French about the May 30th show, followed by an interview.

http://www.cyberpresse.ca/article/20080 ... ACTUALITES

It says that during the show they couldn't hear the reaction of the crowd well from the stage and that during the intermission, he asked the musicians to give more... Too bad because we were reacting like crazy. The problem was fixed for the next show where he finally could 'taste the crowd's 'accueil délirant' (delirious (?) welcome).

Anybody better than me at translating is welcome to improve on this...

Article a little bit different, with a great picture and a (very) short bio at he end: http://www.cyberpresse.ca/article/20080 ... CTUALITES/

You are so lucky to have met him. I only wish it could happen to me! Maybe a miracle will happen for me, too. I wouldn't have been able to talk, I'm sure, English or anything else! Ha.

All Blessings,
