I uploaded another 2 videos.
Waiting for the Miracle, the first minute or so is terrible quality but I hope the rest will make it worth.

Who by Fire with Javier Mas' bandurria solo. Alas, the lighting was very poor so don't expect much...

Used PhotoFunia and a cropping of the photo Roscoe made of Leonard and me in Katowice.
It would be a perfect image for t-shirts :)

Hi Eva (I do not know you, but I enjoyed reading about your wonderful encounter with Leonard!),

This picture would be a perfect image for just about anything! What a great smile! :D

Yeah I agree, just about anything :D BTW I'll get around to scanning that setlist soon. Sick at the moment and my scanner is buried under a pile of papers and the like so yes I'm being lazy ;-)

Gwen,
The quality of your photos are always on par with Albert's videos. It was so hard to pick a favorite, but the one with Eva's rose and the one of Hattie superimposed with LC's face are truly stunning. Loved reading your review and also that your flag was so well received!
Albert,
Congratulations on your upload of 200 videos! Each a jewel. I echo holydove's sentiments - we should have started a fund so you could be at every concert! Looking forward to many more!
Eva,
I loved reading your review, especially your recollection of meeting the band members and the man himself. I am so happy that you had this experience! Have your knees stopped shaking :lol: ?

Thank you to you and all the others who post reviews, photos and videos and links to all the relevant material. It is very much appreciated!

Warmest regards,
Mary

One of my friends managed to retrieve my vanished video files from the memory card. My eyes went teary when I opened a file and got a close view of Leonard's face singing I tried to leave you... I know there are other records of almost every songs but I hope you will enjoy my contribution and the advantages of my excellent seat :)

Hi majmunka,

You did a great job with that video. Looking forward to seeing more of them. You must have had a great spot to shoot it from.

Thanks, yes, I had a great spot to shoot not only during the show but for the encores as well. I was standing at his feet :)

I know I'm kind of late, so just a quick impression. I got the tickets for the concert pretty much by accident. Anyway, me and two of my friends ended up driving 300+ km to Katowice. One of them was a hardcore LC fan as myself, while the other never even heard his songs before. After the concert she thanked me for inviting her, saying that she never thought a concert could be so emotionally intense. I couldn't have said it better myself I guess.

Anyway, the concert was absolutely astonishing, LC received standing ovation already before the encores - and the entire crowd simply stood there for the rest of the evening, thousands of people standing for roughly an hour I guess.

Finally, LC seemed to be in much better shape than during his previous visit to Warsaw. Good to see him smiling.
Cheers

Yup, lucky me :) Though it turned out I had to drive precisely 666 kilometres that night, which makes Cohen's "Drive safely home" sound quite... strange :)

BTW, what's this forum's policy on bootlegs?
Cheers
