......
Just noticed you added another video. Thank you so much for running your camera right through to the end of the concert.
I so enjoyed LC's closing words, the audience response and his reaction. He looked very moved by it all.

Well done, Juan Luis. We all thank you for your outstanding videos.

Leonard Cohen Lisbon offers over three hours of music

More than three and a half hours of music may even seem a little for a lifetime of songs. But it was enough for Leonard Cohen fans leave Portugal on a full stomach after a marathon, in Atlantic Pavilion, which toured the major successes of a discography already 43 years.

In the third consecutive concert in our country, the Canadian singer-songwriter returned to show that old people are the rags. Close to completing 76 years of age, Cohen has not only breath that reaches to 29 subjects in one night, but also continues to seduce generations with a hoarse voice and a warm grave.

Divided into two parts, with an interval of 15 minutes in between, the show this Friday has been stealthily gaining an audience that the vast majority knew that the vineyard.

After all, the room was well-composed audience of almost all ages ready to hear from the author's own songs that for years have been immortalized in the voices of Nina Simone, Judy Collins, Jeff Buckley or John Cale, among many others.

And so, since "Dance Me to the End of Love" by "Heart With No Companion," with passages mandatory (and duly applauded) by 'I'm Your Man', 'In My Secret Life', 'Bird On A Wire 'and' Hallelujah '. If Leonard Cohen was as irrepressible singer of tales, the band that accompanied him was not back - nine skilled musicians, some of them accompanying the Canadian decades, such as bassist and musical director, Roscoe Beck.

Much applause was also the Spaniard Javier But, master of the mandolin and acoustic guitar, 12 strings, essential parts in a machine needs tuning stage that traveled the world during the past two years.

A few months after the end of the tour, this was a show that served as a farewell to the Portuguese fans and it is impossible not to think that soon we will not have the honor of hosting a concert in authentic living legend of contemporary music.

For the faithful followers of Leonard Cohen, more than three and a half hour show was the ideal gift for that bye and will certainly be in memory for a long time. However, the more distracted in relation to the work of the singer would not digested as easily have a performance that goes well beyond the conventional boundaries of a concert 'normal'.

But in the end, who has a considerable human frame and in front of the stage (the chairs in the audience were so forgotten by many), the reactions were unanimous in time to applaud the master of the black suit. Cohen took off his hat countless times, thanks to a warm welcome from the public yielded to the charm and lyrical of Canadian talent.

There are many others on this Forum who could explain the significance of this much better than I can, but here is a brief description of the symbol.
The Hamsa hand is a popular apotropaic talisman for magical protection against the evil eye. The word 'Hamsa' means "5" and refers to the five fingers. The number "5" is a powerful number and represents defense, power and fortune.

The Hamsa hand is a prominent Jewish motif that can be found almost everywhere: charms, door entrances, Jewish jewelry, blessings for home and much more. According to the tradition, the Hamsa hand protects the ones who display it in their homes or wear it around their necks. Many believers place the Hamsa hand in their homes and at their work place to ward off the "evil eye". Hamsa hand is also believed to bless the ones who own it with good fortune and success. Shaped as a hand with five fingers, the Hamsa hand is also known as the hand of Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron.
holydove wrote:
the Hamsa is a protective sign, & I would only add these things; it is believed to bring its possessor happiness, luck, health, peace, & good fortune (i.e. five blessings). Also, about the 5 fingers of the Hamsa/ hand: Five ("hamesh" in Hebrew) represents the five books of the Torah for Jews. It also symbolizes the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet ("heh"), which represents one of God's holy names. Many Jews believe that the five fingers of the hand remind its wearer/owner to use their five senses to praise God.
The hamsa (= 5 in Arabic = Hamesh in Hebrew) is an ancient Middle East region symbol that preceded local religions. It was then adopted by both Judaism and Islam.
You'll see many people from Arabic origin (regardless to faith) that say "hamsa" to a person, reaching out with their palm, meaning to set shield and blessing upon that person (often done with kids - if one will be paying a kid too many cmpliments - a parent would react with "hamsa on him/her" as to protect from the evil eye).

In Judaism, it means all of the above and when attached to a "shana Tova" greeting, it encapsulates all the blessings one wishes for others upon a new year.
Pasted on a setlist, I see it as sent not only to UHTC people who are its recipients, but to all the concert goers.
They have many reasons to feel blessed. Seems like another venue and another night wrapped with love.

Magdalena, you can truly consider yourself blessed.

What do think they mean by "creeper"? Maybe crooner? The portugese word is "baritone rastejante." Darn Google translator again, lol!

Leonard Cohen at the Atlantic Pavilion, Lisbon

Gentleman of the darkness came back to Lisbon for the third consecutive year for new "lap of honor." Three hours of music delighted Atlantic Pavilion very well composed.

lisbon rc74551dritacarmo-3cf0.jpg
Concerts that end with standing ovations abound. Already concerts that start well, not many are seen. But that's exactly what happened last night when, after the entry of the musicians on stage, greeted with polite applause, the audience of the Atlantic Pavilion overjoyed with the third "appearance" in three years of Leonard Cohen in Portugal. Cohen, it is worth remembering it, celebrates 76 years this month, but proved to be able to withstand three hours of "playing game" - the concert started at 21.15 and ended close to 01:00, with a half-hour by half . More than 40 years after the first album - Songs of Leonard Cohen, 1967 - The Canadian attracted the largest room in Lisbon a diverse audience: distributed by benches and seated audience counted not only the finest outfits and hairstyles, as some proud Holders of visual indie, gothic or metalheads (not forgetting that is Leonard Cohen song "Sisters of Mercy"), a crowd whose ages to the naked eye, we would say quedar is between 30 and 60 years.

At 76, we said, the creator of "Hallelujah" has no difficulty to kneel for several songs in playing or jumping returns to the stage between encores after moments or delivered to their three gorgeous female backing vocals (Sharon Robinson, who has written and recorded with Cohen and the Webb Sisters affectionate, also owners of an independent career and, in the final concert, accompanied "If It Be Your Will," Cohen harvest of 1979, with harp and guitar). But in a first encounter, is the voice, not the physical agility or the sly smile, impressing on Leonard Cohen. In his eighth decade of life, the voice of "Bird on a Wire" is of a gravity and solemnity reminiscent of the wrinkles and gravel last years of Johnny Cash. The Creeper gets his baritone to serve "Dance Me to the End of Love" ("I'm the creepy," warned a bystander behind us), which immediately formed the submission to such arrangements as these songs wear in 2010. Perhaps because of the presence in the band of Spaniard Javier But some of the themes sounded more vaguely Mediterranean (But it is to play bandura instrument families of the mandolin, guitar and 12 string). The "pedal steel" Bob Metzger undertook to install aa folk in the heart of the show, while the saxophone Dino Soldo not always sounded sufficiently distant from one 80 years less subtle, and keyboards Neils Larsen spotted together with the garrida ink soul / gospel. These were the languages most spoken in the first part of the concert, a serene journey with highlights in "Is not No Cure For Love," "Bird on a Wire," "Everybody Knows," "Chelsea Hotel # 2" or "Anthem ", delivered to the safe and applauded Sharon Robinson.

Dressed as usual dark suit and hat, Cohen appeared along the first part, more convincing as closer to its image as a "gentleman of the darkness, wrapped in a certain asceticism evident in" Everybody Knows "or" Who By Fire " . This idea was strengthened with the second half of the show, whose powerful trio has opened for "Tower of Song" - mysterious, floating among the synthesizers handled by the Cohen - "Suzanne" and "Sisters of Mercy." For many and deserved praise that the artist has woven its musicians, to see him sing any of these songs practically alone, or with the band in a dormant state, you get the impression that Cohen, his voice and his aura would be sufficient to fill and marvel the Atlantic Pavilion. Even if we forget everything we know about his enforced stay in a Zen monastery, the truth is that the rigor with which, often with eyes closed, lashes out each syllable and mumbles every word that emanates a nearly religious hypnotizes those present.

Then of course there are the classics that Leonard Cohen has offered the world and the world thanks, absorbed and returned yesterday evening - the "Hallelujah", one of the songs with more versions on the planet and that the Atlantic holds the record for mobile phones lit in the audience, the "I'm Your Man" with our man to take his hat playfully (one of many simple but effective tricks guaranteed), to "So Long, Marianne" (madness and celebration possible, the public already foot) and "Famous Blue Raincoat" with the signature breathy fatal ("Sincerely, Leonard Cohen") to snatch a night of warm hearts affections. On the verge of great little ecstasies, in which there are still smiles exchanged by Idol fans and "First We Take Manhattan", the farewell to the tune of "I Tried To Leave You" and "Heart With No Companion" eventually serve more to soothe than to whip up sentiment. At the same time, proved what we suspected: this may have been the third "lap of honor" by Leonard Cohen in Portugal, but none like this gentleman to reap the rewards with such elegance and dignity.

Google translator sometimes seems to go a step too far: the musician "Javier But" :D

I think with "creeper" they mean a singer that gives you goosebumps. Dear native speakers, please confirm.

That is such a funny Google translation! Yes, I'd love to know what they mean by "creeper, too. But "madness and celebration possible, the public already foot" does capture well the atmosphere during the encores, as we crowded around the stage and nobody wanted this lovely concert to end. There were a lot of local people there, some near me who had never heard Leonard before, and were not sure what to expect, but they too were drawn into the "madness and celebration" by the end. I was too busy enjoying the concert to keep track of the setlist, but those posted seem pretty accurate; it doesn't vary much, yet each experience is different. Highlights for me were the slower version of "Chelsea Hotel", which I love, "Who by fire", always so dignified, and a really lively "Closing Time" - Leonard still amazingly energetic after hours of performing, followed by spoken lines from the "other" Closing Time, "Never Got to Love You", ( from Anjani 's "Blue Alert") , which got a big smile from Sharon. And I was delighted that he ended with "Heart with no Companion", which has always been one of my favourites, and sounds great in its current arrangement.
Heike, I was so glad to meet you again, and end the night in the company of you and your friend who saw Leonard live at the Isle of Wight in 1970. A perfect end to a perfect evening.

Hello Heike
Yes google makes a messy translation. "Mas" in portuguese means "but", "aber". (and in spanish means "more"...)
My translation of that part with "creepy":

In his barytone voice he started by singing "Dance me..."("I´m starting to feel shivers" said a female spectator behind us) that was the introduction to the arrangements that this songs have in 2010 (or...the arrangements in which this songs are dressed in 2010). Perhaps due to the presence of the spaniard Javier Mas in the band, some songs sounded slightly more mediterranean.
"arrepios", in this case must be translated by shivers an epidermic reaction to something good. You can also feel shivers caused by something creepy (a horror movie,), but it´s not the case.
Meanwhile I posted some of Juan Luis Crcobado in my blog: http://www.pintur-as.blogspot.com
