Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Ghent, Aug 12, 14, 15, 17 & 18

This concert was absolutely amazing. The setlist was great (Some nice surprises (I never would have believed that Leonard would play "I can't forget") and all the Old Ideas songs sounded fantastic). Especially the ending was very exciting because I was convinced that after "I tried to Leave you" it...

Re: Dino on facebook: no tour for him this time

I hope I'm not posting this twice. I tried it earlier and it didn't come up. Anyhow, I think the way I'm feeling is a BIG part of simply being SHOCKED by this news. I have heard (over my 41 years of being a Leonard Cohen fan) lots of versions of his songs, and all of them were lovely. I will be see...

Re: What songs does he play on his 2012 tour?

He didn't sing Marianne for the first two concerts in Kilmainham 2008. He did on the third night :D :D I like to think that inspired him to continue singing it. He must have heard the huge crwod singing it loudly on the way out from Kilmainham that night.......like an Anthem :!: It will be forever m...

Re: Old Ideas in Guardian Best Albums of 2012

My son in law always teases me with the "Laughing Lenny", so must have been around for a while!! Reminds me of what some people (obviously not fans) used to say in the 60s, about selling razor blades with Leonard's albums. As we say in Ireland "f*ck the begrudgers" :lol: :lol: :lol: Said son in law ...

Re: A Thread of Thanks

I just found this thread and want to add my thanks to everyone involved, but especially of course to Leonard.
I love this forum, which I discovered by accident in 2008 when the rumours of a tour started. How privileged we are!

Re: DUBLIN 2012

Have been away with family for the last month, didn't have internet access, and arrived home to discover there's a 4th concert!! Too late for pre-sale of course, but got good tiered seats. We were quite happy with tiered seats in 2008, so hope they're as good this time. Wow, how lucky we are to have...

Real Alan, you sound as paranoid as myself about midges :!:
Of course there will be midges in Dublin, given the right weather conditions. I carry insect repellent wipes (from Boots) .
