If he's heading east, then why not Tokyo (after Mumbai)?

I'll guess Nashville. He hasn't played there yet, he spent some time living there, and it would be a great site for music fans to celebrate.

San Francisco and New York would also meet my models, but they have already been guessed.

Good thread Jarkko!

Well, Montreal has already been said and you already told us in another thread that it's not there, so I'll say Fredericton (without much hope) because it would be nice to end it where it started...

I wish I could say somewhere in the UK for the sake of my credit card but realistically, I think it will be in North America. I'm thinking Canada, rather than the US. Like so many others, I would have said Montreal but that's already been ruled out. I would like to say Fredericton or Halifax, where the 2008/09 tour started but those venues would be much to small for a final concert. So I'm going to go for Toronto which missed out in the recent tour. Rats!! I've just spotted that Marsha has already gone for Toronto so I'm going to go for Halifax, more in hope than any expectation!

PS Jarkko

Maybe we should have a second quiz on when the last concert is going to be?? I'm desperately hanging on to a couple of days' holiday (and my sanity ....) for a final short trip to wherever.

OK, my first instincts were for Montreal and New York City, but since those have already been taken, I'll go with Washington, DC. Just a guess, but, why not?

I'm still rooting for several concerts in Montreal. If enough of us wish it to be so, then maybe it will happen!

Hmmm, I suppose an acoustical set in my backyard is out of the question, so I'll do some wishful thinking and hope for Salt Lake City - the city easiest to fly into from Spokane with hubby, toddler and newborn in tow! Doesn't seem likely, but a girl can dream, can't she? ;-)

Nice strategy, Jarkko. This is one way to get us all off your back. Okay, I'll play.

I will guess LAS VEGAS. It is a popular destination city for the whole world. Given the present economy, there are plenty of available hotel rooms at bargain rates. Only a one hour flight from Los Angeles. And many direct flights from New York and other major North American cities to facilitate fans expected to travel from all hemispheres.

EDIT
Wendy/Mabeanie1 started me thinking when she wrote,
"I'm going to go for Toronto which missed out in the recent tour."

My reaction was, perhaps they did not "miss" Toronto because of a lack of an available venue. Perhaps they were saving Toronto for the final stop of the tour. Leonard's concerts in June, 2008 were at the SONY Centre. The theatre closed for major renovations just days after the concert. SONY is scheduled to reopen this Fall. SONY distributes the London DVD/CD. If Toronto is his last concert on the tour and at the SONY Centre, then "SONY" will be on eveybody's lips, world wide. Just like the BEACON was. What great free publicity for SONY.

Since you asked: “Where IS the last concert of the tour?” the answer is simple – BARCELONA, September 21, 2009 (Leo’s 75th birthday), because Tel Aviv and Ramallah is still not confirmed. If you ask: Where might be the last concert of the tour? I would say: MONTREAL!!!!!

The right place to finish should be in Jerusalem but i guess it will be in NYC.
