Hi everyone,

I am searching for (1 or 2) tickets to the show at the Beacon Theatre.
I am a long, long time fan and I have never had the opportunity to
hear Leonard Cohen live.

Please, (1 or 2) tickets, if you can spare them.
The orchestra is my first choice but I will be grateful to attend under any circumstances.

Thank you so much.

Hi

Just for my own curiousity, i just did a search on ebay, and there are over 50 tickets for sale varying fro $400 to $3000 for 2 1, 2, or 4 tickets...
Touts win the day again. Its a pity the tickets weren't sold the same way Tom Waits organised his concert in Dublin, by attaching a passport number to it.
its an open market, if people want to spend that amount of money on the tickets its up to them, but for me people should not give hard earned cash to these touts.
As Jarkko said already, that he will be back to New York again and therefore your chance will come.
Maybe Leonard Cohen's management team should announce any further dates...

just my opinion though.

Hi all, try to get your tickets on Friday morning when the general sale begins! There should be about 1000 tix in total, and tickets in every price level. I have been told that Ticketmaster often opens the sale some minutes before the given time, so be sure to be there, logged in with your Ticketmaster user name and password.

Here's the deal. I am one of those that bought a second ticket with VIP when I realized I'd made an error. I have 1 ticket w/o VIP $250 seat Orch F/108; 1 ticket with VIP Loge K/7 (I couldn't affoed to buy 2 at the higher price.)

First, I do not even know if I will be able to attend at all due first to personal reasons, and secondly I could be on strike by then (I won't know until the end of January/early February.) If I am then I won't be able to go.

I bought the tickets with the hope that I can attend - I didn't want to miss the opportunity - but also knowing it may not be possible.

So I may have 1 ticket for sure available, or 2 tickets if I can't make the concert, but will not know until Early February.

I am one of those unlucky who didn't make it fast enough to buy tickets yesterday. Can take 1 or 2. Vern, when will you sell your(s)?

Hi, I am looking for preferrably 4 ticket but will take 2 if that is all that can be had - price range - preferrably $95 - but I am not picky! anything other than $250 which I cannot afford. I haven't seen Leonard since the mid 1980's at Massey Hall in Toronto. I joined this forum in the summer hoping to find out about a NYC date - but somehow I never get any e-mails. I will try my luck this morning with Ticketmaster, but I am not so hopeful. Very grateful in advance to anyone who can help!
Thanks, Harriet

I'm looking for two tickets, any section would be wonderful. I think this would make a great first valentine's day gift for my composer boyfriend, but we're just starting out and could never afford ebay prices! Please contact me directly at uberlara@hotmail.com. Thank you!

So, this is what I have decided to do. If I am able to attend the concert, I am going to be selfish and use the VIP portion of the cheaper ticket to attend the pre-concert event, then use the $250 seat for the show. I will then GIVE the cheaper seat away.

I am going through a seperation right now - sorry for sharing something this personal here - and Leonards music/poetry has been one of the shoulders I have been leaning on.

Anyway, I would prefer to give the ticket to someone who has NEVER had the fortune of seeing him live. I kow I have now way of verifying this, so I will rely on your honesty.

All that being said, if I can't make it - and i will not know until early february then I will post again here on the forum and offer the tickets for sale then.

Like everybody else, it seems, I was unsuccessful in getting tickets for the Feb 19 concert.
I would like to buy 1 or 2 tickets at any price.
Thank you,
