I'm getting emails from members in Asia asking whether this is true or not, and it will be easier to post an answer here so that everybody can see it.
I have checked with the tour management, and found out that the information is premature because the concert has NOT yet been officially confirmed!!
Leonard's huge popularity around the world means that promoters in every country want to have a local date, but there is room only for some new
locations. The World Tour 2010 is going to its end on a given date, and that cannot be changed.
So, we have to wait and see what happens! (Did I hear someone mention the word "patience"?)
I'm copying here the messages about the Cambodian news from another thread (QUIZ 2010):
sturgess66 was the first to post here about Cambodia:
Pironi:Phnom Penh, Cambodia November 27th
DrHGuy has posted a link at his site for for a blog - Andy's Cambodia - http://blog.andybrouwer.co.uk/
The new edition of AsiaLife came into my possession today and it confirms that the first of the Mekong Sessions acts to perform in Phnom Penh will be Leonard Cohen, the 'godfather of gloom,' indoors at the Olympic Stadium on 27 November. Cohen is on a world tour and Phnom Penh will be his only SE Asia date.
A friend of mine who lives in Saigon told me about the article in AsiaLife yesterday. I found it at http://www.asialifehcmc.com/LowRes_pdfs ... aIssue.pdf
Article about Mr. Cohen's Cambodia concert on pages 48 and 49. You MUST read it!!
LEONARD COHEN COMES TO CAMBODIA
Seldom has a musician of Leonard Cohen's stature performed in Phnom Peng. Mark Bibby Jackson talks to the men responsible for bringing the groundbreaking concert to Cambodia
sturgess66:Well well well... the internet makes it about impossible to keep any information hidden.
Please note that the concert has NOT yet been confirmed, and some information in the article may be premature.
Very nice article pironi - thanks.
And - Jarkko - some of the information is premature? I am guessing that the statement "Phnom Penh will be his only SE Asia date" is perhaps incorrect- based on your saying "BUT: this is - to the best knowledge available today - not the correct answer to our Quiz!"
Phnom Penh will not be the last date?
