Personal celebrations alongside LC celebrations in Barcelona

Post by Mabeanie1 » Wed Aug 12, 2009 2:24 pm

I came across this snippet in the article about Albert Noonan on the One Heck of a Guy website:

"We are excited about celebrating our 20th anniversary in September by attending the Barcelona concert on the 21st of that month, which is, of course, Leonard Cohen’s birthday."

Tony and I will also be celebrating our wedding anniverary (35 years*) with a short break in Barcelona though in our case the actual anniversary date falls a few days after the concert itself and at least one other person has also mentioned to me that they are celebrating their anniversary by making the trip.

It made me wonder just how many other anniversaries - wedding, birthday or whatever - were being celebrated by a trip to the wonderful city of Barcelona which has carefully timed to coincide with a certain Canadian singer-songwriter's own 75th anniversary.

A bit off-topic, as I won't be in Barcelona. But last year Cohen sang here in Bucharest on his birthday, on which occasion I found out that the birthdays of my best friend and of one of my favourite romanian singers (who was a spectator at that concert) are both on the 21 of september... Coincidences?
