Saguenay, May 30

Post by gatgoutro » Tue Mar 11, 2008 11:33 pm

There is supposed to be a show in Saguenay on May 30 (use to be called Chicoutimi/Jonquière). That's about 5 hours North of Montreal (almost a remote area!)

Peut-être un spectacle à Ottawa? But I have tickets for Montreal!

For the show in Saguenay, the site for reservation is:
http://www.reservatech.net/SelectTicket ... ateID=6255
Haven't seen the prices yet though.
Sale open on March 20th at 9:00
Auditorium Dufour is a nice venue, 970 seats. Could be perfect for a magic evening with Leonard.
Location is about 200 km north of Quebec City. An easy drive.

Just got 2 tickets for Leonard's concert on May 31st in Saguenay. Since the Reservatech.net web site was so slow, I had to revert to good old telephone (418) 545-3330. There, I learned that they have added a second show on Saturday May 31st. First show on May 30th is almost sold out apparently (1 hour after sale startup). I would have never thought that Leonard would have been so well known and so beloved in such a mainly French-speaking "remote area".

I had the same experience. I finally got through to the box office after endless busy signals, and was told that the first show had sold out. But a second show has been added on Saturday May 31st, and I got two good tickets for that! The area is not "mainlY" but almost entirely French speaking: about 99% or so. A lot of people will be making a long journey for these two shows.

I know Bonaparte, I have spent the first 30 something years of my life there and I still have many relatives in the area.
I will profit of the occasion to visit my mother-in-law who turned 100 years old last February. See you there!

People considering buying tickets for these dates should not be afraid of this French-speaking thing. People from Saguenay are the most easy-going in the world. I know, I'm one of them. :D

Saguenay rocks. When I said I was coming from Puerto Rico, the box office lady exclaimed, in her perfect english with a quebecois accent, "Are you crazy?!" "Oui!" I responded enthusiastically in my extremely limited french.
