I wonder if we will get a pre-sale? There is only a very narrow window for one i.e. tomorrow.

The Guardian says presale on Thursday; general sale on Friday. We'll see if they're correct ...

Would be nice with reserved seats. Can't say I'm into huge open air concerts. But good news regardless.

"his only UK appearance of 2012"

so why is it buried away on the wrong side of London for 90% of the country to get to! Given the site's rep for holding disabled parkers back for two hours I'll have to miss this one!

Are there no similar suites in the MIDDLE of the country?

Poor show this, very poor!

Yes, well ... not totally unexpected but still very disappointing.

As I'm sure you know brokenhill, there are loads of suitable festival-type sites in the Midlands alone if that's what AEG were looking for. Warwick Castle(occasional concerts) , Catton Hall(Big Session Festival), Weston Park (V) to name a few off the top of my head. But it takes two to put these sort of events together and it sounds from the press releases as if Hop Farm have worked pretty hard to bring the "Day at the Hop Farm" idea to fruition.

Let's hope Leonard comes back to the UK and ventures north of Watford in 2013.

I live in Kent, so for me the Hop Farm (whilst not ideal as I would have preferred an indoor London gig) is still pretty good.

Yes, I think most people in the UK would much prefer an indoor venue, me included. Let's hope that 2013 might bring us the Albert Hall again or a similar size venue.
Meantime, since I live in the south, I'll do my best to get to Kent on the 8th Sept.
That's assuming it's definitely happening.

Much as I swore to never go to an open air event after Wetbridge, as I only live about 30 miles from the Hop Farm, and at it appears to be a spin-off event, I think I'll try and go. Glad we don't have to pay £150 for a weekend ticket tho'! Hate festivals because of the hours sp[ent sitting in a car trying to get in and out!

That's what I call good News!
Let's hope, that a view more European Tour Dates will announced soon....I am waiting for another German Concert or one in Switzerland... but let's be realistic: we do have the chance to see Leonard on Stage again! We will travel to Kopenhagen, Berlin and Verona. Can't wait to see and hear LC once again!
Wonderful places to perform, the Weather have to be fine!
We really looking foreward to the Events!
Thank you very much, Leonard Cohen!
I am sure, we all will have a great Time at the Concerts!

It does indeed say that:

Tickets go on sale to members of Cohen's fan club on Thursday, and on general sale on Friday.
