Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Sligo, Ireland, July 31 & August 1, 201

Brilliant Albert. Thanks, this brought back great memories of the first of two fantastic nights in Sligo. We were seated mid way back on the Saturday so can tell you that the whole audience all the way back were on their feet singing along to this one. The light rain shower as "we washed our eyelids...

Re: Leonard Cohen March 8, 1980 (Entire Concert)

I completed the upload of the entire Melbourne, Australia concert at the Comedy Theatre. You may find the entire playlist at: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=AEFE703F05E6C876 A couple highlights, in my opinion, are the songs "Billy Sunday" and Leonard toying with the audience by jumping int...

Intelligent Life Article Pre 2008 Tour

I recently discovered, in a GP waiting room, this article in the Economist Magazine Intelligent Life. I am sure that it must have been discussed at the time, on the Forum but I could not find anything so it might be new to others as well. I found it quite interesting and amusing that, although compl...

Re: Songs From the Road - new live album - Sept 14, 2010

I am very much enjoying my copy of SFTR, as I type I realise I haven't actually watched all of the DVD just yet but I listen to the album driving to and fro. The sound quality of the CD is really really excellent, it makes my car stereo sound like an expensive addition to the car when it's just the...

Re: Leonard's Recent Meetings with Cohenites

'You thought that it could never happen to all the people that you became...' Still can't quite believe it, but I met Leonard today in Lille! I've always cherished the hope that I would meet him one of these days, just so I could thank him for how much his work has meant to me, but what are the cha...

On the mail we had in nov 2009 it says " You will collect your tickets at the venue 1 h before the show at the "production" desk. An id document and a copy of the confirmation e-mail will be required." Scott. I think a lot of us have to collect the tickets there. Wybe Many thanks Wybe. See you at t...

Re: Lille, who is going??

Hi, Looking forward to the meet ups and, of course, the concert. Does anyone know when the tickets will be available for collection at the venue? I was unable to get hold of anyone at the venue by phone. Will it only be on the day of the concert, if so, from what time? Or can we collect prior to thi...

Re: Honolulu - Portland - Las Vegas: PRESALE INFO WITH LINKS

Nightmare with credit card verification and lost several very good tickets as the process took over 30 minutes, but ended up with section FORCH4, row LL, on Friday night in Vegas and section FORCH2, row EE, on Saturday night. Certainly not down to the presale link. Happy with these and can not wait....

Re: Dance me to the end of Love

Whoops, maybe in the wrong place. On BBC Radio London, midnight last night, Jo Good played 'Dance me to the End of Love' sung by Madeleine Peyroux. Different, but I rather liked it. (I since found it on You Tube) I was waiting for Jo to credit Leonard for the song, but she did not. Pity. She should...

Re: Songs From the Road - World Premiere in Krakow

After the concert in Helsinki he said that "The Partisan" was the best rendition of the song ever, and now we will be able to see that footage! I suppose the debate will continue as to the best versions of each song on this new release. All I will say is that if the Helsinki version of "The Partisa...

"Suzanne" wins BBC Radio 2 show stopper vote

Just voted on the BBC Radio 2 Simon Mayo Drive time show. He plays a "show stopper" as part of the transition to the next programme. Tonight the song was a precursor to Mike Harding's Folk show. There was a choice of five artists. Fleet Foxes, Tim Hardin, Donovan, Joni Mitchell & Leonard Cohen's "Su...
