I would like to join EvieB in asking and indeed begging for a date in S. England. Preferably at the Eden Project in Cornwall - then he could stay in my spare room, which even has a sea view for him. And it is a lovely venue with plenty of potential for a Weybridge-style atmosphere.

In fact, remote, could you add another pic in the very SW corner of your map? Thank you :D

Sorry not sure how to do that now it's all online, but what I can suggest instead is that I come and stay in your spare room with the sea view; I can sing too, you know, it's not just him! :D

If they're going all the way to Hong Kong maybe they could stop off in Bangkok and do a show.

Helsinki

Me and my wife missed Leonard's previous visit in Finland due to a very happy thing: we were about to have our first baby three weeks after the concert in Helsinki. And we are desperate to see our all time favorite live in concert. So welcome to Finland again, Leonard :D

Congratulations! And now your then-unborn-baby could probably even join you and sing along! How wonderful! :D

EmilyB, Cornwall sounds great and after he's been there he could come over to the Isle of Wight where I have a couple of holiday chalets - unfortunately not befitting such a great as Leonard, nevertheless we have good hotels here also.

Love Eve x

I have said it before but obviously have to repeat: there are no dates in the UK in the tentative itinerary.

Hi Jarkko

If you read the first post of this thread, this is for fun, a wishful thinking thread... a thread for the dreamers that we all are... :D

All best

Ok, but the itinerary is still "tentative" right? - so permit us to dream just a little bit longer...

Please come back to Holland .... Amsterdam or Rotterdam will be fine.
I'm sure it will be sold-out again...

Interesting...everyone is basically saying "Come to _____ AGAIN".
Gotta figure the tour will move on to places where he "used to play" instead of repeating the same ones which have been played.

SOOOOO.....

... here's (again) hoping that they stop by Honolulu on their way to or from S America and Japan. Otherwise, another long "road" trip is in order for the boys of the Aloha state.

And don't forget---if they DO come here---EVERYONE is invited for a big Leonard on The Beach fest. :D

haha---just about everyone 'mote! We've been passed over in favor of every city from Oakland to Antwerp. From Auckland to Vegas to Zagreb.

Our problem is that it's a wonderful place but just too darn far away from everything else--- not logistically easy to include in a tour. Unless it's part of Japan or Australia/NZ or maybe a westcoast swing. It didn't happen with the other possiblities (west coast and Aus/NZ) but it turned out they didn't go to Japan either so maybe we will get our shot.

Looking back over the last couple years, they've toured extensively in Europe, and throughout Canada twice, all the continental US (imagine what its like for us here to see, say, Oakland/San Jose get 4 shows!) and even a lot in Aus/NZ.

Sitting here on the sidelines, I gotta believe they are going to S America and Asia next. We're hoping they want to take a little stopover here in Hawaii between S Am and Japan. Whether we get a show or not, it looks like Sifa and I will be hitting the tarmac again---going east, west, south, or north we do not yet know!

Yes, please, Romania, in Timisoara / Temeschburg / Temisvar, also known as “little Wien”, open-minded city and open-eyed on everything great happening around the world, both peaceable and rebel, our beloved city deserves to be “blessed” by this great presence, as much as any other beautiful and hospitable city in Europe.
We have a majestic Baroque Square and not only once, walking thru it and having Leonard Cohen’s music close to me, I thought his voice and this place go wonderful together. We were so lucky to see him twice in Bucharest, the human miracle was perfectly repeatable and the magic won’t vanish.
Timisoara happens to be on the west side of Romania, close to Hungarian and ex-Yugoslavian frontiers, so not very far from Zagreb and Ljubljana…
There are only three of us on the forum calling for Timisoara, but Leonard Cohen has many fans/friends here, I know one of them published a book on him and last year he shared with us, readers, the soulful story of his brief encounter with LC himself before the concert. Maybe he will give us a hand, or teach us how to be more convincing. In the meantime, we can’t stop dreaming, over and over. Take this dream.

Just a remark: Timisoara is …reeeally far only from Moscow ;-) :D
