I hope Leonard is feeling better soon and gets some rest.
It was so nice of Dino to let us know....
I can only strongly second that ! Thanks to all of you!

Thinking of your protesting... I hope, Leonard, you will take your time to fully recover instead of performing on Monday at any cost!

You was quicker than my help:) I am still recovering from my heart attack here.

Only two shows to go, that's what's on my mind,,, and then rest before US tour and then Leonard can finally live like a retired poet:) Knowing Leonard, he was probably really upset when they didn't let him go back to the stage. And I simply cannot imagine the horror of seeing him fainting down. Let's home somebody stupid will NOT put that on YouTube.

Sharon Robinson's tweet:

Leonard is fine. Bad case of food poisoning but he's fine. Tour continuing on as planned.

I am glad I only read about it all after Leonard's feeling better and not yesterday. Thank you for all the information, everyone. I hope he will indeed recover and be able to have a wonderful birthday on Monday. Hope he will take it slow and postpone the concert rather than endangering his health again. :(

May he get well soon with all the good vibes being send his way.

Dear all,
We too, just got this terrible information from my nice who knows about my passion and she did send me the link (see below) and felt shocked.
Thank you Marie for better news, lets hope he is fine and can relax to go on with his plans.
Leonard obviously needs to relax.
Tom you just got the right words and as you say , let's hope no youtube of it.
Thank you Dino and all the group of course....
Leonard take care of yourself PLEASE . Leonard we wish you all our very best, we are on our way to Barcelona (flight in 4 hours) and hope to see you there or know you are there in good health (and we understand if you do not feel to give the monday's concert, the important thing for us is that you are well ).
Love and hugs
Andrea & Marco

I send the warmest of warm thoughts on the wind to wish Leonard a full and speedy recovery. It is great hear he feels fine now. But in the end, for me, health is more important by far than one concert more or less. A really well deserved break is soon in sight in any case!

Oh my goodness! I hope Leonard is recovering :( I am setting off to Barcelona tomorrow but will completely understand if he doesn't go ahead with the concert - take all the time you need Leonard, and best wishes for a speedy recovery.
