Re: Just when I climbed this whole mountainside... (Wales 2009)

Ken, this photo is for you... I took it on saturday Hi Tinders, I know this photo was for Ken but it brought back great memories of the Dublin Concert in June 2008. Helen and I "stumbled" across this bar and visited it twice. Best pub we found in Dublin and great pint of Guinness. Really profession...

"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...

Re: Presale to Sligo

My wife telephoned at work at 9.20 a.m to say she had just seen that there was to be a second show on Sunday. We briefly discussed whether we could justify the cost of another concert. As we are booked in to our hotel for Sunday night anyway, could we really have stayed in Sligo, knowing that Leonar...

Re: PRESALE to SLIGO on April 24-26

Tickets in Block B Row AA, eventually after losing much better tickets 3 times due to problems with linking to my credit card verification site. It took 35 minutes. Not impressed. Never mind we thought we were going to lose out all together. Still happy now to be going and in the words of Ian McCull...

Re: Leonard for Ireland?

Confused :? . Is the Sligo concert still scheduled for Saturday 31st July. I noticed it is no longer in the list. My hotel booking has been made so would like to know if I have to try to re-schedule. Also I can not find the thread discussing the Sligo concert. Has it been moved somewhere? All I can...

Re: Italy

I am amused by, but enjoying, the speculation about additional concerts. If they were to go ahead, I must agree that the Verona Arena would offer a spectacular venue. Back in the Summer of 1997 my wife and I attended a memorable performance of "Carmen" at this venue. The natural ampitheatre provides...

Re: Lille, who is going??

Yesterday (Saturday), Helen and me booked our Eurostar from London and 3 nights in the Novotel Lille Centre Gares . (2nd/3rd/4th Mar). In light of the recent announcement by Jarkko, as this eurostar booking is non refundable, we are hopeful that the concert is still going ahead. We are waiting in an...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Madrid, September 12

What an outstanding concert. Leonard was truly in top form after promising that "we will give you everything we`ve got). He was true to his word. I see much has already been written about this fantastic evening. From my perspective, of the 7 shows I have had the privilege of attending, this was on p...

BBC 4 Prog Rock Documentary - A Glimpse of Leonard

We watched a a BBC 4 Documentary last night titled "Rock Britannia. An Observation in 3 Movements". During an interview with Rick Wakeman some Festival footage was shown. Rick was talking over this and amongst other things, for a few seconds (3 or 4 at most) a soundless Leonard Cohen was shown singi...

Thanks for all the great reports and links from the Belfast Concert. It seems to have been a fantastic night with Leonard on top form. I would like to add to some of the comments about audience behaviour which had a few posts on this thread. At the recent Liverpool concert I believe that the people ...
