Besides all doubts i have after the "Berlin Waldbühne Incident":
I got my Ticket! Third Row, center Block infront of the Stage. :D
Now i just keep praying untill the official confirmation is made
But even after a confirmation, i probably will belive it just when the show beginns
So long i hoped for this to happen...

For those deep in the south, I see tickets for a concert in Munich on 6th October are now on sale, but not yet for Frankfurt.

I booked tickets for Hamburg just now, I am just going to risk this not happening rather than not booking tickets and then finding it does happen. So first London (where I live), O2 arena, somewhere in the skies, 5 miles away from the stage, and then Hamburg (where luckily I can crash at a friend's place, who's going to come to the gig with me), left block, first row. :D :D :D I am so happy, let's hope it's really true...

There is my translation :

"One of the most unusual artist of pop confirms his coming for october 2008 : LC. After 15 years break, the canadian poet and singer stand again on stage. The meanwhile 73 years old singer published in his unprecedented carrer more than 15 albums and 12 volumes of prose and poems. He retires 1996 in a Buddhist monastery, where he studies Zen-meditation and became a monk. In Autumn 2008 the exceptionnal artist LC will be guest in Germany : on 31. october he will be on stage in Hamburg on the Color Line Arena."

hoping you understand my english (I'm a french girl, with good practis in german).

Gatwick - Berlin on easyjet return less than 50 GBP, out 4th return 5th Oct. ( Cheaper than my fuel bill to Manchester in June !). Tickets are cheaper too. Ticketmaster postage from Germany is 6.50 GBP, recorded delivery, so if concert is not confirmed then not such a loss if refund required.
2008 Manchester
London O2 x3
2009 Berlin
2010 Poland
2012 Belgium
2013 London 02

I`m sorry, but what with these concerts in Germany ?
No longer he has 50 % places (bought out), and a formal confirmation is missing? He will be like the confirmation, places will be missing (or else they will be " hopeless"). Once I have already bought tickets to Berlin. And "I played" into handing tickets in. He is how he is. But situation (saying gently) is irritating ".

I am greeting ,

The tour management waits until every concert is confirmed and the contracts signed, and only
then they will make the list public.
This may mean that some of the concerts are sold out by then,
because some of the local promoters seem to put the tickets on sale instantly when they get
their details fixed, and don't wait the official tour announcement.

I'm pretty convinced that the German concerts and those three in Paris are to be confirmed in
the final list. I booked tickets to Berlin, too!

After seeing Leonard some days ago in Montreux, I think I have to attend one more concert this year... I don't know either the Olympiahalle in Munich nor the O2 world in Berlin. Does anyone have been in the Olympiahalle and knows one of the O2 halls (they look all the same, don't they?) and can give an advice which concert to choose?
