This is exciting... Will we have to do something immediately because you are giving such an exact time??? Is it for Americans only (because the time is given for the Eastern Time zone??) or for all fans??

Thanks for the 'heads up', Jarkko. As usual, you're very helpful.

anyone else considering going over to the US from the UK/Europe? assuming this is news of a US/Canada tour, of course!

It doesn't seem too hard to guess what the news will be... Pity I won't be able to afford it (but hope to see Leonard sometime in 2009)!

All the best, John E

maybe its a new record, recorded without anyone knowing so.
Or maybe leonard has been chosen to join the Obama office or maybe Leonard will become the first singer-song writer in space, or maybe they will finally release the Book of Mercy recording, or maybe there will be a film about leonard, or ...

Sounds ominous. The 'Files' are closing down, or being taken over by Sony, perhaps. This is understandable. Takes a lot of energy, and Jarkko is not getting any younger. He's being running this site for many years, so one day, of course, it had to happen. You did a good job, my friend. May you have a relaxful retirement and enjoy more time with your family, and maybe focus a little more on some of the other interests and hobbies I am sure you have had to neglect. I wish you well, and thank you for what you started here. With gratitude - Geoffrey

Ominous? I'd rather think it must be something positive, like a special concert for his Russian fans here in Moscow! Leonard, don't forget that you have a lot of Russian fans, we are waiting for you!

No. The release of an album or information of a tour has never before warranted warning of a forthcoming announcement in this fashion. This is not good news, my friends - I have a bad gut-feeling concerning what's about to happen. If it was good news Jarkko would have said so - he would have given an indication. All I am saying is 'brace yourself'.

Sure. Or maybe he has decided to be frozen alive by a cryonics firm and resurrected in 100 years when they have found a way to halt or reverse the aging process - so that he can do a tour on Mars.

Relate, I'm with you! That would be incredibly WONDERFUL news! Anjani has such inner and outer beauty and so much talent! Initially Jarkko's message was so exciting but then Geoffrey brought me down to earth :? . Sigh...
