***According to the tentative information available today it is not likely./Jarkko***
I think we should be modest in our hopes for additions to the tour (especially before they are nailed down) I understand everyone wants an extra chance at catching him (heck, I'd love it if he came back to NC but I'm not holding my breath). My point being is this tour has had a ridiculously great run and I'm sure the shows this year will be among the best; but eventually it's gotta come to a close, although in his generous manner he may very well keep adding dates, but like I said, I'm not holding my breath. I'm still in disbelief at how great this has all turned out, how much better he is than on the '93 tour and just everything about it is stellar.Blowing-my-mind. Since I'm not going to be in any of the countries expecting shows, the only news really pressing to me is the new album (though i will follow the tour with utmost attention). I know Jarkko said we shouldn't expect it before the tour resumes, but hopefully it can come out sometime during. But if I have to wait til January '11; so be it. Long live Leonard

I will ask for no more from you if you could play there.
I concur! However I'd prefer to hear him at the Bergenhus Fortress.

Regardless, this is hella cool!
Now you've got the gist of what my lettuce meant.

Before Mr. Cohen got hurt, there was much talk about touring latin america this year. Is this still a possibility?

South America: Unfortunately I don't think it will happen. The 2010 tour is going to be much shorter than the original plans, because of the problem with Leonard's back.

Great new indeed!

Glad to hear Leonard's doing better, and the tour's back on track. Too bad they likely won't play in N.A. in 2010, but at least there's the new album to look forward - yesss!

Thanks to all for this info :)

p.s. not sure where to post this, but Happy Passover to all who honour it.

Jarkko

Can you give us any indication of when we might have some news? I'm sensing from your comments that things are slowly falling in to place ....
