Extra Concert for the Fans on February 19, 2009 at The Beacon Theatre, New York
See Leonard Cohen and his tour band at this very special concert in New York on February 19. He will play especially for his fans and US media. Later - in April 2009 - his World Tour will continue in the USA and Western Canada.
Thanks to Leonard, his management, and AEG Live, all the best seats have been allocated to our members. This will be a memorable, full-scale concert with all the beloved songs!
The concert begins at 8 pm. Before the concert, we will have a VIP reception at 6 pm at the Beacon for a limited number of members - plus special guests (Leonard is not expected to attend the pre-show reception).
The tickets will be available on Wednesday, January 14, at 2 pm New York time (EST). You will find a link on this page to the online reservation system of AEG Live. The link and a password will be shown here when the reservation begins. Maximum number of tickets per order is four. Multiple orders will be cancelled.
We will have fan tickets in all price groups:
Orchestra: $250 and $125
Balcony 1: $95
Balcony 2: $75
Balcony 3: $65
You may also buy a special ticket with admission to the VIP reception. Only a limited number will be available in every price category on first come/first served basis. The surcharge is $10 which will include a special gift pack available at this occasion only. There will be a tour photo exhibition arranged by Lorca Cohen. We also hope to get the live DVD on pre-sale at the Beacon but that cannot be guaranteed. The DVD, the complete concert at the O2 Arena in London last July, will be released on March 23.
Tour merchandise will be available, including a special T-shirt made for and sold at this event only.
Please note that there will be no book/album signing!
Several fans are hoping to organize a meet up after the concert at a restaurant or bar near The Beacon. It will be an opportunity for fans to discuss the concert over a couple of drinks. More details about this meet up will be posted on this page.
