Not again! Jarkko, you can't use the same trick more times!

As far as I remember, the european tour wasn't announced so "specially", was it? I'm beginning to feel that was unfair...

Well, it looks like its going to happen!!! Awesome!!!

I would guess a spectacular finale in Montreal.....which will undoubtedly be a 21st Century religious experience!!!

Now that's a ticket to get!!!

What makes you think that a finale is within our range of vision? After a few concerts in the States Leonard comes to Italy with his band! And Spain, and...

So, Jarkko, will you be tapping a spoon on a glass to get everyone's attention before making a special announcement "live" at 12.01 am - precisely - at the post concert meet???!

The Aer Lingus cabin baggage allowance isn't high enough to allow me to bring my laptop to NYC with me so I am relying on an announcement at PD O'Hurley's!

Okay, let's start guessing...Leonard and his management have decided to sever all ties with Ticketmaster, and have come up with a new fooproof scheme to distribute tickets fairly!

John, That would be the best!
Your posting about the cancerous growth of Ticketmaster depresses me.

If music fans of all genres unite, can we start a revolution?
The sports fans might join in, because they are in the clutches of Ticketmaster, too.

What would happen if all the major artists started to tour independently, like Fred J. Eaglesmith?

Ticketsnow is even scalping Dalai Lama tickets: now , how wrong is that?!


Here is my more peaceful guess:

Leonard is taking a much-needed rest from touring and will be retreating to Hydra on the 12th of June...

I'm pretty sure that it will be the announcement of the next leg of the tour. It makes perfect sense that it would happen immediately after the Beacon Theatre concert. I'm really hoping that (the other) Leonard from Montreal is right and the grand finale will be in Montreal. That would be a wonderful way to end this spectacular tour.

It's going to be very exciting to hear the announcement surrounded by fellow Cohenites at the post conert meet up! :D :D

Mollydog,

I'm sure it will be the American tour, but I live in hope of a copule more UK concerts later in the year.

All good things, John E
