Re: Billy Sunday and Die Gedanken Sind Frei live in London?

For those of you interested in hearing Billy Sunday from Leonard's March 8th, 1980 concert in Melbourne, Australia you may listen to it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWgFeR1ssCU I recently uploaded an entire concert (Hannover, Germany 1979) to that YouTube account and I will be getting around...

Leonard Cohen November 11, 1979 (Entire Concert)

A fellow member of this forum was kind enough to share recordings of four entire concerts with me simply because I posted that I adored the song "Ballad of the Absent Mare" and was unable to find any live performances of the song. I have not yet been able to repay his kindness, but I thought I would...

Re: The stranger song

I have audio tape's going back to 1971, but I have found no live recording. :? Here is a live performance of Leonard singing "The Traitor" in 1975! O...

Songs from the Road - YouTube Videos

I wasn't finding many clips of the performances from the Songs From The Road DVD on YouTube, so I thought I'd throw a couple of them up there for people to enjoy. The quality is intentionally lowered. If you enjoy the videos, please remember to purchase a copy. You can find the Blu-Ray here (It's no...

Re: Leonard Singing Silent Night

Very interesting. I was unaware he ever performed this song in concert. Does anyone know the particulars of this performance? The location, date, etc...?

Thank you for sharing!

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Las Vegas, Nevada, December 10 & 11, 2010

Have there been any videos posted to YouTube of the December 11th performance? I'm particularly looking for the end of the 1st set when that woman ran up the stage and hugged Leonard. My girlfriend thinks I'm "exaggerating" the blouse & bra tossing as well. It was quite clear from the Mezzanine - I ...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Las Vegas, Nevada, December 10 & 11, 2010

I was blessed to be in attendance last night for the final show of Leonard's momentous world tour. Sitting up in the 1st Mezzanine section, I was fortunate to be sitting right next to a very kind couple - the wife is a huge Leonard Cohen fan and member here at the forum. Sadly, I have forgotten her ...

Re: Las Vegas Meetups for Dec 10/11

Oh, the concert is a week away and I'm so excited! On Wednesday I will be flying out from Massachusetts. Fortunately, my brother lives in Las Vegas so I have a place to stay for free. Coincidentally, his birthday is December 11th...but sadly he is not a fan of Leonard Cohen's work. I told my brother...

Re: Leonard does not own the rights to Suzanne?

Thank you, kalinowt, for enlightening me regarding Leonard's reacquisition of the rights to "Suzanne". I apologize for not knowing this information previously. Would anyone, by chance, know the name of the person who owned the rights to the song before this reacquisition?

Leonard does not own the rights to Suzanne?

I am watching the DVD "Bird on a Wire" by Tony Palmer. Leonard speaks before performing Suzanne and says that "the rights were stolen from me..." He goes on to say that a friend asked him to sign some documents, implying it was just the "standard writers' contract". Does anyone know who this friend ...

Re: RECENT SONGS ALBUM

Hydriot, BOTAM and W and perhaps T maybe don't do it for you, because when I just relistened to them, they seem to appeal to female sensibilities - 'chickmusic' IMHO. Mary I don't know...Ballad of the Absent Mare touches me so deeply, and I am male. Sure, it's written from a different point of view...

Re: LC 2011

I guess we will have many opportunities to see a lot of "Last concerts" :D :shock: :razz: mirka I am flying out from Massachusetts to see his December 11th show, specifically because I am concerned it may be his last show ever - at least as far as a world tour is concerned. I can't imagine that Mr....

Re: Ticketing info for the last concerts in December

December can't come fast enough... I will be boarding a plane in Connecticut to travel to Las Vegas to see Mr. Cohen conclude his two year world tour. I am so honored.
