Paris, Olympia, 24-26.11.

Postby abulafia » Mon Jul 07, 2008 11:11 am

Just got the newsletter from a france ticket provider, Gérard Drouot Productions. They announce three concerts at Olympia, Paris at 24,25,26 of novembre.
Presale of tickets starts at wednesday this week, 10 a.m. (9th of july)
Here is a link to the presale (up to now not working):

Good luck with finding tickets! The venue looks great, definitely much better than the german halls he is playing in!

LEONARD COHEN

3 CONCERTS EXCEPTIONNELS A L'OLYMPIA
24, 25 & 26 NOVEMBRE 2008

PREVENTE EXCLUSIVE MERCREDI 9 JUILLET A 10H SUR GDP.FR

Après 15 ans d'absence, Léonard Cohen, l'un des plus grands auteurs-compositeurs de notre époque est de retour sur scène pour une tournée mondiale.

Après 2 concerts exceptionnels cet été en France, le 9 juillet aux Nuits de Fourvière de Lyon (déjà complet) et le 22 juillet au Nice Jazz Festival, Léonard Cohen reviendra les 24, 25 & 26 novembre prochain à Paris pour 3 concerts exceptionnels sur la scène de l'Olympia.

Pour beaucoup, cette tournée sera l'occasion unique de voir la légende qu'est Léonard Cohen. Artiste incomparable, il génère ce que la musique et la littérature ont de plus révélateur sur les thèmes de l'amour, du sexe, de la mort et de la religion.

C'est une tournée magistrale. C'est même plus que ça : son retour après toutes ces années d'absence est un fait marquant de l'histoire de la musique !

i ordered tom waits tickets from the gdp site a couple of months ago

when i ordered the waits tickets there was a grey web page, that supposedly puts you in a queue, which refreshes itself every 60 seconds to make things harder for the touts
