Leonard Cohen is to appear before the Wiesbaden Kurhaus

12/04/2010 18:08 clock - WIESBADEN

(Isa). Will be launched in February for his life's work in Los Angeles with the highest American award-winning Canadian folk singer-music Leonard Cohen to be the next open-air star of the Bowling Green.

It still is not confirmed officially, but the singing poet, which is said, that he was in the 60 - and 70 years, the spirit of an entire generation will, on 4 September in Wiesbaden occur.

The fact that the now 76 year old still has a huge audience, he put forward in 2008 and 2009 in Germany in evidence. This year he will delight in Berlin, Cologne and Wiesbaden Kurhaus ago, where about 10,000 people are square, with songs like "Suzanne" or "Hallelujah".

Yes, Mary - that was a good one, I thought, too! What it actually means is that there is space for about 10 000 people, but you might already have guessed that... ;-)

Ann,
Aside from the 'Jokes Needed' thread, intermittent member posts (especially that whole 'Snowman Diary' thread started by Pete-thank you), DrHGuys 'insighful' analysis of us members - I simply adore these google 'translations' :lol: :lol:

Here is another humorous translation of the same article by YAHOO BABEL FISH.
This time a "nursing center" is mentioned.
Leonard Cohen is to arise before the Wiesbadener nursing center 12.04.2010 - WIESBADEN (isa). In February the Canadian Folksänger Leonard Cohen distinguished for its life's work in Los Angeles with the highest American music price should be the next open air star on the Bowling Green. Still it is not officially confirmed, but the singing poet, of whom one says that he in the 60 - and 70's the awareness of life of a whole generation coined/shaped, is on 4 September in Wiesbaden to arise. That has today 76-Jährige still a giant public, he already proved to 2008 and 2009 in Germany. It wants to inspire this year in Berlin, Cologne and before of Wiesbaden nursing center, where about 10,000 guests place find, with song like „Suzanne “or „Hallelujah “.

Is this article accusing us concert-goers of being tall, fat/round, old people who belong in a nursing home :lol: ?

OMG Arlene, you have to stop this, I'm crying over here. I know you are also, Bernie!

MARY, it gets even better. Someone left a comment on the article which GOOGLE translated as follows:
Retired City.
Are there less knöchernde artists, for the Bowling Green in front of the Kurhaus is interesting or there are only the 50 + versions? Lionel Richie, Elton John, Cohen ...
Sting & REM there were the glamorous high points - even though already a little dusty :-)
Well equivalent, perhaps, the average for this city.
I think the lament is that all the performers are, shall we say, old. I just love the "dusty" description.:lol:

And this is the YAHOO translation.
Pensioner city. Are there also less knöchernde artists, for those the Bowling Green before the nursing center is interesting or gives it here only the 50+ variants? Lionel Richie, Elton John, Cohen… Sting & REM were there still the schillernden high points - although even already a little angestaubt: -) Perhaps Naja, corresponds to the average of this city.
I defer to our German speakers on the forum to enlighten us.

Oh well, if they are all "dusty", what can I say - I just LOVE the "dust you seldom see"! :D

And, here is my translation of that commentary:

"Aren't there any less' bony' artists for whom the Bowling Green in front of the spa hotel might be an interesting venue, or are there only the 50+ -types to be had around here these days? L.R., E.J., Cohen... Sting & REM can almost be seen as the glamorous 'high points' in this respect, even if a little outdated by now themselves..."

Two more people though so far who have also left a comment, both contradicting the first one...
"You thought that it could never happen / to all the people that you became"...
