Lou - my sincere apologies to an upright German. How could they dare to charge you extra fee. Didn't you show your passport ?

Tom & Henning: I think there is no big risk if you book tickets before the show is confirmed here, but only if the seller is eventim, ticketmaster etc. type of OFFICIAL SELLER in the country in question. That probably only means that they put the concert on sale before they've got permission from the tour management. BUT: You have to get your tickets at the nominal price + booking fee. Be aware of touts/scalpers who are already selling tickets at much higher prices to non-existent shows, and shows not yet confirmed. If you have booked through an official agent and the concert happens to be removed from the schedule (never gets confirmed), you will anyway get your money back (you will loose the booking fee).

I have discussed the confirmation issue with AEG Live and the tour management, and in the future we hope to get the confirmations before the tickets go on sale. The holiday time may cause some problems but that's how we hope to do it.

Also note in another thread that we have now 50 good tickets for members to six UK shows!!!

---Greetings also from Eija, Linda and Dick from the amazing Canadian Rocky Mountains. Yesterday we were surprised to meet Dan Scanlan and her lady companion at a cafe in the middle of the mountains. They are on their way to Edmonton, too.

Hi, people... One thing I know for certain: everybody was so excited when first news in relation with Leonard Cohen having a concert in Belgrade were published and we were so looking forward to it... :D Dates of 10th or 30th of September were being mentioned. Now; suddenly everyone kept silent about the issue! :( Anybody...? Any explanation...? There are so many of us that want to hear him. For me it would be first time being to his concert, but probably it would also be the last chance for majority of us to see the Big Gentleman here in Serbia and entire region, since this is - as we all now - his farewell tour... I appreciate the feedback on this one...

The final dates will not be confirmed until early August, and true - Ljubljana and Belgrade are still missing, although announced by local promoters and venues. I guess we have to wait (although, there's almost no room left - only some dates between Prague and Bucharest and Prague, and one date - supposed for Ljubljana - is now turned to 2nd date for Vienna...). After that we will know. I only know that Zagreb is dropped out long ago; other two cities were in but now...


PS. I noticed that Serbian newspapers (and ONLY Serbian) are keeping to call this tour "Farewell Tour". I don't know who came out with that false news (maybe because of his old age?). As Leonard did not perform live since 1993, this is more like "Comeback Tour" :lol:

I'm in Edmonton and my information may be a bit outdated, but I don't think there will be shows in Ljubljana nor Beograd (unless they have added really late to the plans!). We'll see...

I hope for the sake of all his fans in Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia, etc., who don't easily get EU visas, he will choose Belgrade or Zagreb over Ljubljana.

This does not appear to be a complete list of the confirmed shows. What about Paris 25-26 November? I thought these dates were already confirmed - and they're the dates I have tickets for!!
