Alain Bashung has released a new album yesterday: there's a cover of Suzanne on it, in French, lyrics by Graeme Allwright.

Hi, Rbtahke: I got the list here: http://www.nice.fr/mairie_nice_474.html
But, as I said in my other thread about the Nice Jazz Festival, there is no point calling the phone number on that page b/c they don't know anything about it and are not dealing with it either.

Hi, So long ago: tickets for those concerts are not on sale anywhere yet (they will be released in May) so no one knows how much they will be yet.

I will keep you all posted. :-)

Where did you get 4 April from? I received an email from FNAC (they will sell tickets for the festival) saying they would go on sale in May. I posted that email somewhere on this forum (you might want to do a search for it.)

I have no other information and cannot speculate on how much they might sell for. Sorry. Just sit tight and wait for info.

stevew486 wrote:The fnac site doesn't yet have an entry specifically for the Leonard Cohen concert but, if you search for Nice Jazz Festival under 'spectacles', it says tickets will be from 31 to 51 euros. I imagine Leonard will be at the upper end of that range. The site says tickets will be on sale soon.

I understand that the festival uses two or three stages simultaneously. These pictures show the main stage (where I assume Leonard will play) with a standing audience http://www.flickr.com/photos/benoitdarcy/143000268/ and http://www.flickr.com/photos/thethingisgav/201967396/ . This picture shows a smaller stage with a seated audience http://www.flickr.com/photos/daneski/199362153/.
Thanks for the info. Tickets will be cheaper than for the O2 Arena (even if the euro is still worth a lot of money). Not sure whether May qualifies as 'soon', though (I got an email from FNAC telling me that's when tickets would be on sale. Unless they've decided to release them earlier.

The Arènes are an idyllic site. I expect that's where LC would be performing. It's absolutely gorgeous on a summer evening.

Augusta,

if you read the earlier posts, you will see that the tickets are not yet available. You will be able to buy tickets from the places that are mentioned when they go on sale.

I know we're in the wrong thread, but since you asked: If you want to look in English, I would post a 'looking for' ad on Lyon's craigslist page...if you are comfortable doing this business in french, there are a number of similar pages. I've had great luck finding tickets on craigslist. Other than that, you might be stuck buying from resellers and getting ripped off, but it might be worth it:).
