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...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Belfast, July 26

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 ...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Liverpool, July 14

Just read the report by John Etherington and will not attempt to add too much to such a well written piece. Only my own agreement with his review. We (my wife Helen and I) also attended our 6th concert since Dublin last year. Leonard was in as good form as ever and we believe that the concerns over ...

Re: Weybridge

Delighted as I am that Vega is playing, I can't help but bristle at more slightly inaccurate hype. Last week AEG claimed that Weybridge was Leonard's only UK show this year (later qualifying that in the small-print as his only OUTDOOR show), now we have Uncut claiming - presumably based on a press ...

Re: Regina Spektor

I watched Regina Spektor on the Jools Holland "Later" singing "Blue Lips" on Fri 31 May and there is a link on youtube. Link below although the computer I am using sometimes blocks youtube links so you might have to look it up yourselves. Its worth a viewing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQK7KkMVGdM

Bob Dylan at the London O2

I will start with a declaration that while Leonard Cohen is my favourite artist (by a long way) I have loved the music of Bob Dylan for many years. This was the first time I have been to a Dylan gig for 11 years (when he toured with Van Morrison, after recovering from his health problems). I have se...

Re: Concerts in Spain (several threads merged)

Waited in all day for tickets to Madrid and Barcelona. No sign of any at 5pm. Checked UPS tracking and they had delivered them to "someone" (name supplied) at just after 10.00 am. No notification had been place in my mailbox at my house. I called and eventually got through to a main depot/call centr...

Re: PRE-SALE TO BILBAO & BARCELONA & MADRID NOW!!!

don't worry Scott, seats 38 and 40 are indeed adjacent that's the way theatre seats and the like are usually numbered: from the center aisle to the left is odd numbers and to the right it's even ones Thanks for clearing that up David. I did wonder if that was the case. You have made a happy man eve...

Re: PRE-SALE TO BILBAO & BARCELONA & MADRID NOW!!!

Now in website but it will not allow my e/mail password (9 characters) as there only appears to be room in the password window for 8 or less characters. :? I think you just make up a new password. That's what I did anyway and I got through to the next stage. But it crashed after I submitted all the...

Re: PRE-SALE TO BILBAO & BARCELONA & MADRID NOW!!!

2 tickets to Barcelona row 7. :D Also got 2 tickets for Madrid, there was no option to choose seats and we were allocated row 1. :shock: Even after 3 hours battling the website we still have front row seats. Initially absolutely delighted, however they were allocated 1 seat apart numbers 38 and 40. ...
