Latest news from Leonard and Robert

Post by jarkko » Mon Mar 15, 2010 10:26 am

Robert Kory has kindly given us the following information so that we can share it with the members. Another great gesture of good will from Leonard and his management!

Robert confirms that Leonard is fine, and his back is much better. The doctors have given him the green light to start the tour in July!

The 2010 Tour will begin on July 25 in Zagreb. After Zagreb, most of the concerts in August will be in the Nordic countries, plus some in Central Europe. There will be a break after August, before the concerts already announced begin in mid-September. According to tentative plans, the 2010 tour will end with some concerts in the Far East. The tour itinerary will be announced after all concerts have been confirmed.

Leonard is also working on a new studio album!

Hi Jarkko,

Paraphrasing Dylan: Did I understand your message, man, is my question hopeless and forlorn? but does this mean Leonard isn't returning to Ireland this year?
Anyway, it's good to hear that Leonard is recovering.

All the best,

What wonderful news to start the day!! :D :D The most important thing is that Leonard has done so well with his recovery! The second most exciting news is the studio album but I think most of us had suspicions that he might be working on one!! And, of course, the concerts! Looking forward to the list after Zagreb....have passport, will travel.. :D

Many thanks to Leonard, Robert, Jarkko, and Marie for sharing this good news with us!

For what’s left of my religion
I lift my voice and pray:

Leonard Cohen: Please try Oslo's new Opera House....
I will ask for no more from you if you could play there.
