Meet Up in Paris - 24, 25, 26 of Nov.

Postby Patrice » Thu Nov 06, 2008 9:24 pm

Friends,

Original post by Carine in the Gatherings section :
carinem wrote:Dear everyone,

We (the french fans of Leonard Cohen) are organizing a meetsup just before the concert at the Olympia the 24th, 25th and 26th of November.
Because it will be hard after (11:30 PM) for those who are working or taking the train or plane the next day ...

So you are all welcomed to have a drink together, take pictures and discuss of our great artist just before getting in the hall.
The meeting is between 6:00 and 6:30 PM at the entrance of the Olympia, then we'll go somewhere to have a drink. (see update!)

I'll be the one in charge of the 25th meeting. Hope to see you all !!!
:D

Carine.
Carine is in charge of the 25th and I want to thank her here ! :)
Albert is in charge of the 24th (thanks to him !)
Judy is in charge of the 26th (thanks to her !)

Important update by Patrice.
The gathering place is a sandwitch bar near the Olympia Hall. When you turn back at the entrance of Olympia, you walk on your right, you cross a street, and just after the Café de L'Olympia, you have the sandwitch bar, located 2 rue de Sèze (although the phone directory indicates 4 rue de Sèze).
Don't forget to wear the badge !
Time : 6 PM (since 5:30 PM for 24th only).
All material including badges, maps and further informations are in English and French language here:

Both dates, Judy ? Wonderful ! :D

Well... we have currently no "leader" for the 26th...
Maybe you ? :?:

Let's wait and see for that date, there will be more participants than expected - I hope!

Hi All,
I wasn't there but really wish I was.
From dimedozen I've downloaded the 25th. November Olympia concert and the following set list was included.
Thanks for the tapers and thanks Maarten for all your efforts. I've also posted it on the setlist link so if any alterations are required, they need to be made there also.
A thousand kisses deep is the spoken version.

If anybody wants a copy,particularly people who may have been there, please let me know


Leonard Cohen
Olympia (2nd night), Paris
November 25th, 2008

Taped & edited by Eric78
Audience recording from the 26th row, center.
Lineage: Zoom H2 with internal front mics (16bits/44100 hz) > USB > Soundforge 7 (level adjustment, track splits, fades) > DBpoweramp>flac
Despite the level adjustments, the applauses are a little bit loud and there's some volume fluctuations during the applause between the tracks 2 and 3. Nothing disturbing though, a very good recording IMHO.

First set : 61:32

01 Dance Me to the End of Love
02 The Future
03 Ain't No Cure for Love
04 Bird on the Wire
05 Everybody Knows
06 In My Secret Life
07 Who By Fire
08 Chelsea Hotel N°2
09 Anthem

Second set : 65:37

10 Tower of Song
11 Suzanne
12 The Gypsy's Wife
13 The Partisan
14 Boogie Street
15 Hallelujah
16 Democracy
17 I'm Your Man
18 A Thousand Kisses Deep
19 Take This Waltz

Encores : 42:57

20 So long Marianne
21 First We Take Manhattan
22 Famous Blue Raincoat
23 If It Be Your Will
24 Closing Time
25 I Tried to Leave You
26 Whither Thou Goest - outro
Look after yourself and (each)others. All the best Dave ♫♫♫
