Re: CONCERT REPORT: Perth, Australia, November 24, 2010

[apologies for the delay in getting this report published -- it's down to a combination of two factors. The first is travel; the second is that clearly I haven't been heeding Leonard's sage advice ... I have come down with a summer cold.] Tour-closing concerts are always an interesting beast. When ...

Re: THE PARTISAN, Perth Concert Nov 24, 2010

Salutations people I haven't had time to write a review yet - Ann and I spent time with Forum member Dean (from Adelaide) this morning, I will write one, suffice to say, this Perth concert was in mnay ways quite different to the concert at Sandalford - where the Sandalford concert was best describe...

Re: Travel Around Australia and New Zealand

I Went So Far For Beauty Well, I'm now back in Adelaide at the end of my long month of travelling around Australia and New Zealand to see Leonard and the band perform. As I've travelled around I've spoken to a lot of Cohen fans at the shows, and explained what I have been doing (in a way that doesn...

Re: Setlists of the World Tour 2010

Perth (24 November 2010) This was the same set list as the Adelaide show ... but the poetry recitation was varied and there was a lot of little tweaks to lyrics, introductions and spoken ad libs that made it feel fresh: Set 1 01 Dance Me To The End Of Love 02 The Future 03 Ain't No Cure For Love 04...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Perth, Australia, November 24, 2010

A Perfect End To A Wonderful Tour I'm just back from witnessing Leonard's generous and inspiring performance at the nib Stadium in Perth. This performance, which I am sure I will be writing much more about over the coming day or so, was as close to perfection as I think I have witnessed at a Cohen ...

Re: Travel Around Australia and New Zealand

Meandering Around Perth After arriving in the beautiful city of Perth, I had a few hours to spare before tonight's concert so decided to take a bit of a stroll around town. Perth is one of those places I would imagine those outside of Australia (and even lots of people inside Australia) would be le...

Re: Travel Around Australia and New Zealand

Last Journey Well the bags are packed ready to head to Perth for this evening's Leonard Cohen show, which marks the end of the Down Under tour. Of course, by this point the process of "packing the bags" is mostly down to picking up the backpack I dropped in a corner three days ago and slinging it o...

CONCERT REPORT: Perth, Australia, November 24, 2010

Down here in Australia, we are gearing up for the (hopefully) massive finale to Leonard's tour Down Under ... http://l.yimg.com/ea/img/-/100609/a_151009genaerial93-160uami.jpg The nib Arena (I only noticed yesterday) is actually a big soccer stadium open to the air.

Re: Travel Around Australia and New Zealand

Super-Cohenize Me I was just thinking yesterday while I was flying back from Melbourne to Adelaide, how much I had missed a great opportunity. In the same way that Morgan Spurlock rocketed to international fame by just (a) getting himself checked over by a physician then (b) going on a 30 day diet ...

Re: Travel Around Australia and New Zealand

A Day In Country Victoria As I've described over in the concert review thread for the Hanging Rock show, my visit to country Victoria was very brief -- pretty much just long enough to get to the show, crash somewhere for the night and drive back to the airport next morning. Of course just because I...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Hanging Rock, Australia, November 20, 2010

Photos from Hanging Rock, Part 5 -- Leonard and the Band Having Leonard and the band play a set during daylight was fantastic from the point of view of taking some good photos (particularly ones that don't look almost identical to dozens of others I've already taken). Leonard comes on stage to thun...
