as sad, disappointed, and heartbroken as i am to not have a ticket for this evening... it does offer some comfort to hear that there are SO many in the same boat - all having gone online on the dot that day in January... to no avail...argh...

well... i'm debating going up to the beacon to see if any of the scalpers will be there with egg on their face trying to sell their tickets at something close to face value...
it would be sad to have the audience sparsely filled because of the scalpers' greed and egoism...

to everyone who will be inside the Beacon Theater... have a wonderful evening... enjoy with deep heartedness and light heartedness Leonard's wonderful poetry and the gifted musicians and support team behind the scenes...

in the light...

outside the beacon theater tonight -- was a sellers market ... the few people tehre who were selling were asking insane amounts of $. One woman wanted over 400 - a man who was willing to pay her 300 at 8:10pm but that wasn't enough for her.
People looking had great spirit and enthusiasm.. and hope
apparently the box office released 3 tickets to a crowd of over 40 who braved the absolutely freezing temperature...
hopefully everyone in the theater enjoyed the experience and had a wonderful time...
hope the after concert gathering was euphoric!

That Forest Hills Concert was july 25th 1970. The setlist isn't known to archivists.

Could you post here what you wrote in your little book please?

Thanks,

Robin
Does anyone know the set list from Central Park in 1967 when Leonard performed (i think it was with Judy Collins)... or the one and only time he played at the Bottom Line in the mid/late 1970s...?

If you go to the MAIN page of Leonard Cohen Files, NOT Forum page, and scroll down you will see the annouoncement. Also, if you click where it says to do so: Click here to get all the details!, it will open another page with all the North Am tour info. Hope this helps.

Two Ottawa dates! I think I've died and gone to heaven. Plus a Kingston Ontario date. Amazing. Very happy Ottawa fan here.

Ottawa is group b, tickets available 25 Feb. I think.

Hey Sochijava ,

Another Ottawa fan here. Yeah, it's terrific that he's doing two shows here. I saw him in Montreal last summer and the performance was divine. Of, course, everyone here and in the media has been raving and rightfully so.
