However, after the tour ends in December, I plan on continuing writing about… well, whatever comes up I suppose, and I’d love to have you come along.
After having read the post of July 19, 2013 below, I could say that I certainly would love to come along.

This said, it may be that he wants to write in December. (No it can not, not the way it is written). So maybe this Australian tour? Suddenly kangaroos are jumping higher, really high, wow! And the millions species of poisonous snakes are twisting frantically.

It would be nice to have Leonard Cohen for Christmas around here.

I clicked on both links from my not so smart phone but couldn't see any information.

I however have hopefully claimed that we'd be seeing out friend again later this year :)

Is that a surprise? I somehow did expect another US (or even Australian/New Zealand) tour in the Fall, and then the final wrapping up after 6 years.

Oh, I hope not. Now that Leonard has figured out how to write on the road... I hope he'll keep going out for as long as his health and his joy in performing indicate.

Hehe, I agree - I guess THIS tour, after all, new album was in the work... with Born in Chains and all other new songs.

PS. I see now that Sylvie Simmons mentions possible Australian/New Zealand tour later this year... So that could be it after Europe as LC doesn't want to perform there in February/March anymore, after heat waves and fires he encountered there last time (as this year he insisted that EU tour happens outdoors only in July, not in September like in 2012 when they fought against rain, heavy weather and cold).

And that is only reasonable. It's enough of a joy & a miracle that he's performing at all to this standard, he certainly doesn't have to perform in bad weather!

The tour will end in December. There are no plans for 2014. So, if you want to see Leonard live in concert, make sure you get tickets to one of the Fall concerts.

We could open our traditional quiz: where do you think will be the last concert (name the city)?

Tough call. Where do I think he should play his concert? There is only one city - Montreal.

I don't think the tour will finish in Montreal.

Previous "last" shows have taken place in Las Vegas so I might as well say it: Las Vegas.

I'm going to go for the horse that's so dark it's not even in the race: Buenos Aires.

I agree with you Wendy. I posted this on the 'Australian Tour' topic on July 22.

MaryB wrote:OMG, OMG, OMG,OMG,

Could this possibly mean somewhere flying closer than Australia???? Please say it is so and make it easier for us in the mainland to get to a concert?????

(P.S. I know that in the past members have questioned 'why Las Vegas' , and the answer has been because of the caliber of the techs made it so easy for the crew. I hate LV, but LC makes 'this most unmagical of cities' worthwhile- Please, Please, Please!!!!!)

Anyone have any ideas where Leonard will play in late part of 2013?

Haven't seen any new concerts announced - should we be waiting?
There's music on Clinton Street all through the evening.

Jarkko: When you say "there are no plans for 2014", do you mean no tour plans "yet" or do you mean there is a plan not to tour at all?
