I sugggest somebody moves richardrj to anotherf post - a very distant outpost.
Ignore him tiggs. Your post is as relevant here as most of the rest of the stuff we've written and a damn sight more relevant than richard's!

richardrj - lighten up and get down off the high horse!

Zintman, what are you on? This is the pretour section!

Keep up Red Poppy. :D You've got the wrong end of the stick (is that again?) the posts have already been moved.

Let's give a hand to those quiet few keeping this place nice and tidy. :D

MADONNA - you're not American - don't let the IRONY be lost on you too!!!!!!!!

Oh heaven kindly spare us from the neat & tidy few,
who'll tell you where you're going and when the train is due;
they'll put you in a carriage and assure you of your booking
and won't listen when you tell them, you were only looking!

That came to me in a moment of inspiration.
How's the winter down there? :roll:

hey poppy.. thanks for that, I felt a bit like an uninvited guest who had sneezed in the punch bowl. I work in music and live and breath it, sometimes you forget there is a controlled and disciplined world out there. Perhaps there shouldnt be. At university many tears ago, we spent hours pondering the red wheel barrow by william carlos williams, I hope that never happens with the music and lyrics of cohen.
His work has washed over me and enriched me all my life. I would hate to think that his work, or the people who listen to it ( or the forums in which he is talked about ) would become ridgid, controlled or disciplined. I am sure that is what the great man would want :-) Have a great day.

Seats for Sale to Anyone Irish and also to those who want to

Post by daka » Sat May 24, 2008 9:15 am

Hi
I have two extra seats for Dublin:

Block A2 Seat 21 Row WW - June 14th

Block A5 Seat 107 Row S - June 15th

AT Cost.............. / around 120 euros each plus negotiated delivery costs

I hope I don't have do offer in the general 'Tickets' area of the forum as I would be slightly more delighted to enable an Irish afficionado to attend. One seat is excellent. The other is OK but not 'excellent'.

email for now is the best way to contact me as I am traveling and visit the forum only occasionally during the next week.

This is my first time to see Leonard and I was just wondering will there be any merchandise for sale at the events, I would love if there was.

I think it will be, he will probably be scarred for life now, his mum and dad prefer front row seats at Leonard to him. But never mind, eh?

That is pretty expensive, I fancy getting a tour poster though.
