Coming out of winter hibernation to say - very exciting news. Thank you Jarkko for the heads up.

Thank you to Leonard, his management and to you Jarkko (the past several days and minutes have been fun!).

February sounds good. Sounds like no problem - at least regarding the time.

What a wonderful treat for those able to get to New York. Unfortunately, after four concerts last year, I simply do not have that kind of money to throw around this year. :(

Deep sigh...

Lucky Americans...
Far, far away from Poland and, unfortunately, we still need visas to enter the USA. No possibility to obain a visa in a few weeks.

There's only one hope - according to the lyrics "first we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin" - I do hope there will be a second special concert here in the heart of Europe, maybe as a gig concluding the second European tour. Who knows...

Ummm... the Beacon theatre websire looks like a bogus or a spammers page. Any chance the url is wrong? I went directly from the link posted on the font page of the LCF website.

How lovely - photos by Lorca, meeting fans, being in New York, Leonard having chose to do this for the fans. Wish I wasn't working that weekend, and wish it wasn't Credit Crunch year - otherwise I would have taken my good friend who's never seen New York, for a weekend of delights... Aaaargh. Just the thought of is is making me tremble...

Well, many great people will be there and come here to tell us all (I can picture Maarten or someone else posting a setlist 20 seconds after the concert finishes...).

Hope some of you stay at the Chelsea Hotel (I was there last year... made friends with the guy living in Dylan's old apartment... never found out which was the room in which Janis and Leonard, er, had their chat. Though I think I did ride in the elevator in which it was said, 'Little Lady, I AM Kris Kristofferson!').

Happy concert to all in NYC or who are able to travel there. x

Perhaps it should be changed on the Files site, because that one over there really isn't the right one, I think.

FIFTEEN Pages of messages in 4 days about something none of us (except, perhaps, Jarkko) knows anything about.
Hysteria perhaps?
Ah... and 'tis perhaps only a measure of the complacency of some of those abroad, after enjoying the smorgasbord of Leonard performances available for these past many months. We in the U.S. see ourselves mentioned and, yes, we do get excited. Rising to the level of hysteria... well, that's debatable... but, for sure, it commands our attention.

And this ~ now ~ is very Very VERY great news 8) !

Thanks, Jarkko :D .
