I had talked myself into flying into Paris for one of his shows,(I still have credit cards!) but then was unable to get tickets to the show... :cry: ...I'll just wait and hope for the U.S. NYC would be awesome...

It'll be more than worth it - enjoy! I've been abroad to see favourite artists a few times and its great a holiday and Leonard all in one :)

It was said in Montreal Gazette that after his acclaimed 3 shows at montrealjazzfest that LC planned to have another concert in Montreal
I'm going to make a prediction that the absolute final show(s) of the entire tour will take place in Montreal. There's a saying "you can't be a hero in your hometown" but Montreal has been a proud supporter of their son-that-is-Leonard-Cohen since he was a young poet.

How cool it would be to play the last show of one's career, walk quietly alone a few blocks to one's home, close the door, retire, wake up the next morning in your own bed, get up, make a pot of coffee and wonder if it was all just a 40 year dream.

After a long overdue tour of Québec? (With a special welcome to maritimers, of course) ;-)

"We asked for signs ("Anthem") about a tour.

Well, only a depletion of Leonard's energy ( after all, he will be 74 next month) or a Zen finality when "enough's enough" ("Never Any Good") would stop a North American tour.

He is on a roll now as more concerts keep being added to the Fall Tour and just seems to love "the whole damn thing"("Closing Time") "Diamonds in the Mine"are just an added reason!

Have not seen any posts on this subject since Aug 2008. Any updates to announce in OCT 2008?
Any news would be greatly appreciated.

I know, I know....nothing has been confirmed!!!!

Another sliver!

Just a note to say we went to Berlin. Had a wonderful time. Met several of the band members together with the Webb Sisters and Sharon Robinson at the fan party before the concert. The concert was great. All in all a wonderful time. Definetely worth the trip. Can't wait for LC to come to California so we can see him again.
:D

It has been "secretly" announced tonight (by his son) that Leonard will be coming to Vancouver, BC either in March or April. Which most likely means some additional US tour dates too... I'm sharing this with the forum dwellers...
