The concert was great, started at 8:10 ended at 11:45. Same setlist as in Salzburg - except that Leonard played I Tried to Leave You on his guitar. Very enthusiastic audience, the security guy had to send back a lot of people 'cause they tried to line up in front of the stage from the start of the second part. (Actually, they refused to go back to their seats and settled down sitting on the floor :)) The encores went like in Salzburg: singing and dancing. There will be photos later, I met Maja who had a nifty new camera and took really amazing photos. And promised to post them tomorrow or after tomorrow.
Leonard seemed to enjoy the show very much. He was very lively, sometimes even mischievous, smiled a lot especially during the encores. The venue was very small but the noise (cries and applouses) were even louder than in Salzburg, sometimes on the verge of being hysterical :D

One more tidbit: just like in Salzburg, there were no screens. That could be inconvenient for the back rows but no screens means no cameramen moving constantly before the front rows :) I appreciated it very much.

Are there screens or not depends on the size of the venue. So there were cameramen and screens in Zagreb, no in Salzburg.

It really was a great show. For me far better than Zagreb. (Cannot really compare it to Wiessen last year as it was my first Leonard concert and feelings on that one cannot be put to words) Somehow I like it better if the venue is not too big.
It was really nice to meet Majmunka. (In Zagreb I recognized Tom from all the pictures posted here and wanted to go and say hi, but somehow I felt a bit out of place there - maybe I will do it in Ljubljana :))
Majmunka and I had the best seats in the house :) I agree completely with what she wrote about the concert. For me it was such a great show that when I got home last night I was really thinking about not going to Ljubljana. I know this sounds strange, but I know that beeing in the firts row directly under the stage cannot be topped. Such a great memories were made yesterday.
But still - how could I miss the first concert Leonard is going to have in my own country? So I am again looking forward to October. And I think row 5 will work as well. Or maybe I will get lucky and digg up some 1st or 2nd row seats. :D

I made a huge amount of photos yesterday. I still have to go thru them all and take time to upload them. But I promise to do that soon as some of them are just amazing.

Gorgeous video Maja. And lucky you. You really were "front and center.!" Thanks!

Leonard is wearing that bracelet again. :D

Sweet to hear the audience singing along so quietly with him! At 2:28 Leonard does something a bit different with the melody line - goes up a fourth at the end of the phrase?

Thanks for sharing!
