Re: CONCERT REPORT: LONDON, JUNE 21, 02 ARENA

Lets just say that it would not be appropriate to use the word "Skimpy" in this context. :lol: Really laughed out loud at this. :lol: Where I was sitting in the cheap seats, couldn't see much at all let alone pants! Trouble is, I was spoiled at Manchester in 2008, intimate the O2 is not ! 2008 Manc...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Katowice, Poland, Oct. 4, 2010

Just back in UK today after fantastic concert in Katowice. 3 new songs were performed expertly. The Polish hospitality was great, well played Hotel Angelo where many Cohen fans stayed. The Spodek is immense ( alcohol free !), and in need of some investment, but that aside, i was so pleased to see th...

C'ant wait for the concert on 4th Oct. Got the new album today,it is truly marvellous. Watched the DVD, listened to the cd. :D The extra back stage item is very interesting too. The whole performance has matured since my first experience in Manchester in June 2008, and it is a joy :D

Staying in the Angelo too, very reasonable rate. Just a 24hr 'jolly' for me, out monday back tuesday. I did a similar thing in 2008 for the O2 Berlin, and that was fun. :D

Re: "Leonard Cohen Live in London" - DVD & 2CD - April 2009

Well I bought both the DVD and Cds from Amazon for £22-56 and I think this is excellent value and will always be a reminder of the great concert that Leonard gave at the O2. I was in the back of the second tier there so the DVD gives me an insight into what was happening on the stage and I feel it ...

Re: "Leonard Cohen Live in London" - DVD & 2CD - April 2009

Willie The Partisan was included in the NPR broadcast, as was Chelsea Hotel though not, sadly, FBR. It's well worth downloading the podcast if you haven't done so already. Wendy I agree, i downloaded said NPR concert. The sound quality is excellent, and includes bits not on the new cd/dvd. Others h...

Re: Campaign: Get Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah in the UK charts!

Leonard's recording of Hallelujah was played on Radio 2 Steve Wright show this pm. Radio 2 has a massive audience, ? 5 million+ i'm told, so good to hear on national radio ! :D

Re: Press Reviews of Fall 2008 UK dates?

The summer tour was quite well covered by the British press, they might not differentiate between the summer leg and the 'fall' leg of the tour ?

He did Chelsea Hotel tonight! Another great gig,thanks Leonard :) just back from O2, thoroughly enjoyable. Chelsea Hotel was a highlight. Because O2 wasnt full we were upgraded to the floor, this was ok apart from the fact that i felt i was in an airport terminal ! Dozens making their way to seats ...

Re: Munich, October6

I think the sound quality varies depending on the accoustics of the arena. The sound quality in Berlin was excellent, i was sitting high up in the upper tier. I sat on the floor at O2 London and the sound was not as clear. The sound team appear to have worked wonders adapting to each venue. As for L...
