Hi,
I look forward to seeing a few friendly faces at the Marseille concert.
I love Marseille and am a frequent visitor, but now my friends (and concert companions)live in Jouques near Aix, though continue to work in Marseille.
Let me know if anybody is having a drink/snack before.
I'm sure there must be a few more forum members attending the concert.
Greetings from Liverpool

Hi Anne, I belatedly read your post that you and your brother will be meeting for the concert in Marseille. At this point I wish I had looked at France more seriously but still hope for something "reasonable" in Moscow.

Many, many years ago I had lunch with a friend at a little cafe in the harbour of Marseille on a drizzly afternoon in February. We ordered bouillabaisse, which then took 30-45 minutes to prepare...meanwhile we sipped a delicious white wine and nibbled on bread...bread that is only made that way in Europe, with lush unsalted butter. The meal became one of those memorable feasts that one never forgets for their entire life. My memories will be with all of you in Marseille.

Anne, it was wonderful to meet you in Las Vegas!!! You are SOOO awesomely beautiful, within AND without!

I am planning on being in Marseille for the Concert on March 7th and would love to meet up with other fans for conversation, a glass of wine and/or a bite to eat. I am coming from the Napa Valley, CA and will probably stay in Marseille for the night before the concert and the night after the concert. I am exploring hotels in Marseille that are inexpensive and I am open to any suggestions.

After the Concert I will be staying in Antibes at a timeshare for a week. I saw Leonard Cohen at his last North American performance in San Jose, CA. I listen to his music almost constantly and never tire of hearing him. I especially like the CD's of his last London Concert. I am a new fan of his (I don't know how I managed to not know of him until recently) but now am entirely devoted to him and his music. I would love to meet him sometime but not sure that is possible. I would also like suggestions about what tickets to buy for the Marseille Concert. Of course I am not familiar with the venue where he will perform. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I also do pet and house sitting here in California and would love to have an opportunity to do the same in Marseille or anywhere else in France where my services may be needed. I have excellent references and I can be reached by email at msbetteann@gmail.com

Stop it! You're killing me!!! I love Antibes, and the last time I was there, I stayed on a private yacht for a week. It doesn't get any better than that! Ask me about it if we meet in Marseille. However, I am thinking that the only show I would skip of the 6 in France, would be Marseille, as I would lke to have 4 days in Antibes.

Cheers,
Ken(adian)

PARTERRE - Rang 0 - Place 024

I think this is front row, can anyone confirm?

We will be there, too. We have tickets avant scene no 058 and 059. Iwas also wondering could this be first row? I can't find seating plans with numbers.
Have a nice weekend, Christel

I have been playing around with the Marseille seating chart as I have been hunting for tickets and this is how I think the seating works. The Parterre is the area immediately in front of the stage. After that comes the Avancees or Avant Scene followed by the 1-er Gradins and so on. I think the Avant Scene is a raised area but GDP will confirm this for you (info@gdp.fr). There are 3 central blocks in the Parterre. The middle one is P3, the one to the right of stage (Dino's side) is P2 and so on. There are 16 seats in each block but no row numbers (hence all tickets are Rang 0) so row 1 is seats 1-16, row 2 is 17-32, row 3 is 33-48 and so on.

There is a good - but unnumbered - seating plan at http://www.ticketnet.fr. Search for Leonard Cohen, select the Mareseille show then go as if to buy tickets. A plan will come up which shows you where your allocated seat is but there is also a magnified area that you can slide around to look at other parts of the arena.

Hope that helps. BTW I sent a couple of e-mails to GDP to ask where particular seats were and I had prompt and specific replies back from them in both French (in response to an enquiry in very bad French) and in English (when I saw sense and wrote to them in English!)

Thanks Wendy,
I wasn't sure where I was sitting and thought I was about 14 rows back but Parterre-Rang 0- 09,10,11
sounds good.
I'm still off to Provence in (only 3 weeks time) so if I can help anyone in anyway please ask.
I'll have a drink in Brasserie les Templiers, a cous cous,a few days in Aix,Arles, and walk for miles and miles.


Wish the show was still going on, but September gives me another excuse...
