What are the chances of a repeat performance in 2012?

Have just been doing a check on YouTube for videos of every song from the 1st Lissadell concert and there are only seven missing. However we have videos of Dance me to the end of Love and The Future from the second concert. Missing completely are:

Ain't no cure for Love, In my Secret Life, The Gypsy's Wife, Boogie Street and Take This Waltz.

Can all you wonderful people who posted videos check and see do you have any of these please as I'd like to create a playlist of the entire concert on my YouTube channel. Should this be a success I will of course share the link for it :)

There is a new book out by Mary McEvoy (Of "Glenroe" fame) entitled: "That's how the light gets in". As you can imagine, the title was inspired by Anthem. In the book she describes her struggles with depression. There was an article in yesterday's Irish Independent magazine "Weekender" supplement. Maybe this belongs in another thread, but only Irish people would be aware of who Mary McEvoy is.

Will I be celebrating my 60th birthday next year at an LC concert? When will Jarkko reveal all? Tension mounts.

Hi all,

Just to add - I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Leonard Cohen in Mullaghmore as I was manager in the hotel he was staying in for the 4 nights while he was in Sligo. (our best kept secret for months prior until the public found out on the third day when he arrived after sightings of him!) He was an absolute gentleman and extremely friendly to us all, management and staff as were his crew and musicians...

Thanks for this - it's good to hear that LC lives up to our image of him! :D

And well done on managing to keep anything a secret for months in Ireland...

Thanks James. The next time he visits you, keep it secret as well but let me know beforehand.

Thank you Albert,

I wasn't there but it seems that I should have been!!
I can't believe that a year has gone by so quickly. Thank you so much for this wonderful video. :D I'm sure that it will bring back great memories to those who were there.
