Old Ideas Tour Australia?

Postby sal.49 » Fri Jan 11, 2013 11:22 am

hi!
I'm new to writing on this forum, but i signed up especially to talk about Leonard coming to Australia this year.
I,[ and i am sure many others], was devastated when the locations were released and Aus wasn't on the list!
Leonard has so many fans here, and he'd sell out a show in no time. i'm wondering if there is anyone who knows how go about begging for him to come here. i have sent an email to this address - ja@nebula.fi - which is apparently his manager? so maybe if other people sent more emails, Leonard and friends may notice. i'm wondering if there is anyone who has had experience with this?
sincerely, Sal.

Hello Sal
and welcome to the Forum!
Leonard knows very well how popular he is in Australia and New Zealand.
Let's hope the Tour will continue someday after the European Summer tour,
and perhaps AU/NZ would be included then.
Right now it is too early to say anything about so distant future.

The email address you mentioned is my own, and I am not Leonard's manager.
I am hosting www.leonardcohenfiles.com and also this Forum with a number of co-hosts.
Both these sites are parts of the fan community.

I totally agree, but as I am a New Zealander, New Zealand would be my destination of choice. His previous concerts here have been astonishing events and his following here verges on obsessional in some cases. It wouldn't matter where in New Zealand as true disciples would go wherever they had to. He would be so welcome here and the New Zealand Psyche is such that his privacy would be respected should he choose to stay for a time and enjoy some of the best food and scenery in the world. I only wish that I could afford to go to Europe or America to see him.

So sad for you. :( . Still miss the land down under, where I first really became a Leonard fan. Cremona and Mossman Bay, Sydney (1978!)

To the Oz and NZ posters on this Forum and to everybody down there who have emailed me about the tour:
If Leonard continues to tour, the next likely region is Australia/NZ.

Thank you Jarkko,
Let's hope that does eventually happen :D Yesterday I said as a guess in the Adelaide event thread maybe Nov/early Dec.
..... Of course, I really don't mind at all if it's much sooner :razz:

EDIT: Oh no, I've just noticed that you have underlined "If"..... arrrrgh!

***I underlined the word "if" to show that we always have to keep some reservartions for things that are supposed to happen quite far away in the future. Legs # 1 and # 2, over 50 concerts, have to be completed first! / Jarkko***

EDIT AGAIN: Thanks for that clarification Jarkko; and I do understand your position. I think I just got a bit over excited and started to take it for granted and then when I saw that underlined "if" I wasn't so sure.

Has anyone heard whether or not Australia & New Zealand will be included in 'The World Tour 2013/2014?
