@ Video
Dear Video, I can only support what Evie wrote to you. Grab your chances while you have them. You won't know, if you get another, this thread is mainly speculation, wishful thinking and hope.
And if we really are so lucky, then be sure, you also will take your second chance, as the first concert will inevitably turn you into an addict. ;-)
I also have been a fan of Leonard Cohen for 30 years. But these last tour's concerts have a magic and a power that I never dreamt of, even though I knew all the texts and all the songs and have seen Leonard Cohen perform live in 1988 and 1993.
It's not the same and I can't explain why.
You will have to feel it and just one thing I can promise: You will not regret it.
So take your chance while you still have it!
Yours, Amrei

LEONKA,

Can you imagine how I feel. I am just seeing Leonard for the first time at the Las Vegas Concert. :D :D


Hi Chcerise gal,

I think I know how you feel when you saw Leonard with your own eyes the first time in Las Vegas :lol: . When I was in Katowice at the concert, so I sat up in 12 Board seats, I think it was the Sector A. Although it was not near the podium, but I can feel the magnetic waves, which came from the stage. Had me if someone asked for something, so did not answer I because,my mind floated, for sky :D. The magical and exciting atmosphere, of the concert I took as much as possible take. In Katowice me the concert passed quickly.
For in Bratislava, I enjoyed it from first to last second exit from the stage of Leonard. As if,the concert lasted more than 3 1 / 2 hours. I sat in a 5 row of seats, so stage was at hand. My eyes are focused (almost) only on one point. I would like to experience again, but it's questionable whether that will happen.
I think it would tour again, so probably will not Bratislava. Because I looked at the plan states the World Tour 2008-2010, wherever Leonard had concerts. But I am not a magician. :roll:

Wonderful news, but let's not get all ageist in our comments again.
Les Paul was still performing at 93, so here's to another 17 years, at least :)

Just hoping I live long enough!

Hi Leonka......Your words are an echo of my heart..After more than forty years of listening to Leonard, the very first note still sends me to a fantastic place..I cannot really describe this place, but it leaves me drained and exhausted but with a heart so full of love to give to all...and In my daily life, it actually happens..I see the difference and I nod my head and say thank you to Leonard..I came late to the tour....terrible sorrow kept me buried and away from life for five years...But I found him in Florence and my world had beautiful colors again...Seeing him, made him real. He will be with us forever, in his words and music...but like everyone else, I hope he stays well and wants to color our worlds again..I am the same age as Leonard and I know how hard it is to be young in heart and mind while the body is screaming at you to slow down...He is a rare gift to us and we should be satisfied..but we are also human and we want more....I hope we all have our wishes granted....including Leonard............Jeanne

Wonderful news. As one of Leonard's fan for 30 years, I listen to his deep soulful songs almost every day. I have seen Leonard Cohen and the great band twice at the concerts in Istanbul, Turkey and Lille, France. I feel I am very lucky to live in same period with such an excellent man. Waiting for a concert in Istanbul again. Pleaseeee...

Hi Jeanne,

In my mind and heart is Leonard since 1998 8) . Some of my friends say, that -I can still, listen to music from LC. So I asked them the same question, but the singer, whose are they like. They said that they listen to more singers, I replied that Leonard is one that I can listen to every day. Because, with Leonard on the three meanings, namely: songs, poems and prayer. As already regarded as musical art, it will succeed only by hardly anybody. Leonard songs have comforted, cheer up and it makes me happy in my whole life.
I feel this way and I still feel that way.

At concerts, ceased, take all the stress, and take all the positive energy that beamed to us from Leonard and band. I am happy that I live in a time when I can see the live Leonard. Leonard songs in openly thinking about love and life in different stages, it's beautiful, passionate, but especially amazingly true!
Find the connection between mind and body is a source of research what we find.I believe that here in the forum I found what makes me humble, responsive and where I can relax the mind. . 8) ;-)


***Therefore I hope in my heart and mind , to see Leonard again in concert in 2011. :( ...... ;-)

Check out the World Tour news under the cancelled concert in Cambodia. Robert Kory in an email reply concerning the cancellation appears to confirm that there will be another tour after the release of the next recording.

Here you have his words, we still can have a hope...

"We remain committed to playing Asia; I have explored many avenues; our technical rider is a deterrent to many Asian promoters who know their business; nevertheless, Leonard plans to tour next year after the release of his new record. I will continue to try to organize a tour in Asia."
