Re: "Elaboration of a tube" line in "Going Home"?

I forgot to add:

the prior word "brief" in "brief elaboration of a tube" refers to the brief life of the human elaboration which is "Leonard."

Re: "Elaboration of a tube" line in "Going Home"?

A tube: picture a toothpaste tube standing straight up. Looks like a person with the cap in place of the head. A toothpaste tube is very malleable and can be pushed or squished into any shape the owner wants. Well, "Leonard," as a human being, is just such a malleable "elaboration of a tube" in rega...

Re: New songs for 2010 tour

He played "Avalanche" when I was there at the 3rd Montreal concert in June 2008. I thought it was the best song of the night. I was disappointed he didn't sing it many times afterward.

San Sebastian 1988 concert

now that Isle of Wight is out, is there anyone who could make a DVD of the San Sebastian concert that is all over YouTube? I love watching LC with Julie and Perla. also, how about the FIeld Commander Cohen tour. A complete version of one those concerts would work too. Watch the young Sharon Robinson...

Re: Leonard Cohen concert in Ramallah

MIrka, But of course you are qualified to attend LC concerts. It is merely that certain allusions may escape you even as you enjoy the plain meaning of the lyrics, and the music, and the backing vocals. People spend years studying the intent of famous painters, musicians, poets, etc. and get more en...

Re: Leonard Cohen concert in Ramallah

sleepygoldenstorm, One point I've made is that there was no need for this concert in Ramallah. If the Europeans and Americans there want to see Leonard Cohen, they are free to fly to wherever in Europe they wish (allowing for the harassment at the airport or bridge, etc. etc.) As LC says on his Lond...

Re: Leonard Cohen concert in Ramallah

Minna, Thank you for your posting where you say "Imagine Arabs singing Cohen's hallelujah" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHcqm6OvhcQ I would love to post side-by-side Leonard's lyrics and these, but unfortunately, I will be busy for the next few weeks. Perhaps in August if it still seems relevant. ...

Re: Leonard Cohen concert in Ramallah

The fact is that the show in Ramallah will be done without any local demand. Activists worldwide (and I saw some of them at Radio City Music Hall in NY) generally protest anything having to do with Israel, and my guess is that Leonard sees this as a chance to somehow unite the two peoples. However, ...

Re: Anxiously awaiting U.S. dates......

just a guess, but I would think an announcement around the date of the NY concert in two weeks would make sense. that way the publicity of the concert would enhance the publicity for the tour. that's what they did last year, when the first leg was announced as Leonard was inducted into the Hall of F...

Re: Toronto, the 4th show (June 9)

unless i don't understand ticketmaster, which is a possibility, there are numerous tickets still available for the 4th Toronto concert on June 9.

all you people who still need tickets, please take note.

(I was lucky enough to get excellent seats for Montreal on June 25)

Re: All YouTube & Multimedia Links

After watching the clips from the tour, I had to look at some older clips to remind myself that Leonard crouching and holding the mic close to his bowed head are not indications of aging, but are really the same way he has performed in the past. For instance, look up the performance on Jools Holland...

Re: Find, sell or swap tickets here

i thought the montreal concerts were sold out, but if you go to the Montreal Jazz Festival website, and find the 3 LC concerts, the one for the 25th still shows some available seats. (the 23rd and 24th say they are sold out) i already had my tickets for the 25, but if someone else is looking, try th...
