It seems strange to me that they didn't play Anthem and Tower of Song and that they shortened I Tried to Leave You, does anybody know the reasons for it? Maybe it was only the question of time? I hope that Leonard will return them both to the set-list, very soon I'll have my first chance to see him on stage (Lodz, July 19), and I'd be happy if he plays them there. However the acoustic version of Chelsea Hotel is also excellent. What do you think?

All the best,
Ivan.

Yes, purely a question of time. Late start (9:10 pm) early finish (12:10 am) - see also show times above. Festival shows are often shorter, not just for Leonard though his shows are longer than most in the first place.

A small article - and there are pictures at the link.

Translation from Google -
Leonard Cohen Lucca enchants with his voice and his songs

10-07-2013 / Motörhead / Laura Casotti

LUCCA, July 10 - Leonard Cohen at Lucca Summer Festival has given birth to more than three-hour concert (break included), during which he never spared, nor did a 'job': he sang, he spoke with the public and, in the end, it's gone hopping. A concert that will surely remain in the hearts of the many people who have assisted, of which these are some pictures that stop in time and in the history of this magical concert.

Thanks, Linda, it's really good to have everything related to a concert in one place!

I like this passage from the 2nd post:
tonight’s waltzers (those who leap from their seats to gather at the foot of the stage)
Roman aka Hermitage Prisoner

The Arcadian dream has all fallen through
