Confetti - I am, in fact, a man, though in a certain light........
The dress is simply a little thing I throw on now and then.

Tinderella - at your age the blonde can't be real though row UU is further back than you think. Still, at your age, it probably doesn't matter. I said AT YOUR AGE IT PROBABLY DOESN'T MATTER :razz:

You said it, thank you so much Mr. Cohen!

I am just so glad to be there at all, I saw that there were great seats going for the Sunday, but the friend coming with me is is booked to fly out on holidays on the 15th! Hence my sheer panic this morning!

I cannot wait, already scratching the days off the calendar. :razz:

I am sooooo very happy - I got tickets for both gigs in Dublin. Could only buy two separate ones for the 14th, but got two good seats together for the 15th. I am giddy with excitement. Thanks for all the info on this site. I only joined recently, but have been reading here for ages.

After my success with Dublin tickets, I proceeded to purchase two for Edinburgh a month later. :D :D Aer Lingus flights are only €77. The Edinburgh concert are so much cheaper than Dublin too. :lol:

Hey Poppy seeing as you think I am SO OLD AND INFIRM.... if you got a better ticket closer up to see THE MAN.... and I take it you have seen him before.... wanna swap tickets and buy your way into HEAVEN when you die. :D ?
By the way I am sure you will look fetching in a red dress but hope you still have some hair left on your head as I cannot see a dress looking so well on someone with a bald head, unless you are Sinead :D

GOT MY TICKETS!!!! Actually, got 2 sets of two in different sections - 2 bought on-line, 2 bought at ticketmaster outlet (my plan worked!!!!). Can't work out which ones are the better seats - Block B Row L or Block A2 Row YY. Block B is the tiered seating so I should get a good un-obstructed view of the stage although a little further back. These were the cheaper of the two (€105), so maybe they're not as good(or does it REALLY make much of a difference).

Anyway, I'm just so delighted that I'm at last going to see Lenny live!!! I keep staring at the tickets in my hand in disbelief!!! :lol: :lol:

Got my tickets thanks be to God.

I was logged on ready to go and had 6 tickets for Saturdays gig up on screen and then I ^%£%$"%$&^(&*&*^%^%$%$£"$"£$$£% it all up by not having the right details for the credit card to hand- had to call the owner who was teaching a religion class to Junior Certs to get it sorted- funnily enough he had his phone turned on and was willing to answer it.

By the time I got back to the net Saturday was gone but I managed to get 6 for Sunday Block A5 Row X so it seems to me I scored better seats- there will only be 23 heads between me and the stage.

I now have 2 spare tickets and am willing to sell them- It will literally cost you a leg and an arm to pry them from my cold dead hands....

i think you maybe should have tried to butter Poppy up a little more before the insults, tinderella, you probably had a chance of the swap there and then you blew it with the baldness :D :D

I adore his version of Tonight will be fine. Anyways, its only 20 euro, so won't break the bank and t'would be a nice pre Leonard gig to go to. :D :D
Going to this concert too, tinderella53. Yes, Teddy Thompson for me was the highlight of Came so Far for Beauty. Wonderful voice, just suits Lenny's songs so well.

Click "quote" on the post you want to take something from and edit within the quotation marks in the post a reply screen.

Just did a general scan on ebay out of curiousity and this came up:

http://cgi.ebay.ie/LEONARD-COHEN-Kilmai ... dZViewItem :roll:

Not too crazy a starting price i suppose, but it will be interesting to see how high it goes!

I know, the stuff on http://www.needaticket.ie is even more galling, particularly when someone here pointed out that that "company" have been bought by ticketmaster. Me thinks I smell a rat.... :x
