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...

Initially absolutely delighted, however they were allocated 1 seat apart numbers 38 and 40. ...

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

We are still no further forward as can not even see half the page so although have been able to select number of tickets for the venue, there is no access to credit card. Maybe its my computer but understand others are experiencing the same problem. Anyone got any advice..... :(
