WANT DETAILS OF LEONARD'S TOUR???

Post by lizzytysh » Sat Jan 26, 2008 5:16 pm

Hi ~

Welcome to the Forum :D . No one knows anything about the details of the tour. When anything is known, however, you can know for absolute, positive sure that you will find the information on this site. We will all get it all at once. The info [whether presented all at once or in progression of date, location of country/city, time, and venue... it will likely include how to get tickets and maybe even the prices; if not, the prices will definitely be available at the purchasing locations] will be in a thread in the News section [at the very top of the index ~ the section you're in right now] in a NEW, clearly-marked thread initiated by jarkko, indicating in a very clear way ~ "Leonard Cohen's Tour ~ Specific Details" or some such ~ that this is the information everyone wants and is anxiously waiting for.

We're expected to hear something in February. Even though that's not a guarantee, that's what we're hoping. When anything is certain and that NEW thread appears, this thread will disappear!!! [Or sooner ;-) ]

I hope you'll stick around and join in here in the meantime, or at least keep watching the News section here. We all share your enthusiasm, curiousity, and anxiousness for details :D .


All the best to you,
Lizzy

Almost every post on Google Alerts or Yahoo Alerts in reference to Leonard quote Jarkko's post on the upcoming tour.

I contacted Ed Sanders at Leonard's management office and no sites, venues, or dates have been determined.

I'm beginning to think that admission to these gigs should be by secret handshake only!

Maybe the secret handshake should be followed by the question "why do you stand by the window" - only the correct answer gets you in!

Let's see:

1) February

2) Why do you stand by a window?

3) Secret Handshake

4) Thread disappears

5) Obtain tickets to Tour 2008

I just wanted to make sure I got the steps and sequence right.

(John E. Send secret handshake details by pm. Thanks)

all good things

Okay, I think I got it... but why DO we stand by the window? Is it the thorn in the bosom? Continuous stutter, perhaps... word into flesh? Arms of the high Holy One? What if I get the answer wrong?? :shock:

I just signed up for the email list in hopes concert tour dates will be included and sent out to members right away. I want seats right up front.
Last night we watched "Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man" and ever since then I've been downloading songs from iTunes and reading up on his bio.
Even though I was a young adult during the '60s & '70's, I never picked up on him during that time. I've got some catching up to do!

My favorite line is the one: "Everything has a crack in it; That is how the light gets in." (from Anthem).

Nice to meet you all!

Looking forward to any details which come to us!
The tickets (US) are priced at $750 (least the scanned image i saw was.
However, I will travel anywhere in EU, and pay the piper accordingly.

I have always been taken by leonards music & lyrics, and missed out 15years ago (working offshore & bad weather cancelled flights)
