#LeonardCohen Concert at @PerthArena from 20.00 pm to 23.00; Expected attendance 8,000 ppl; Increased #traffic. #PerthTraffic
This may just kill me, but I'm here! (at @PerthArena for Leonard Cohen w/ 2 others)
Leonard Cohen, the whitest, most baby boomerish concert experience one can have.
Keen for legend leonard cohen right about now
Seeing Leonard Cohen for the first time. #PerthArena
#leonardcohen now.almost.thousands,maybe 8.selfies going off everywhere.
#leonardcohen better! He gets better!
It amazes me how many covers of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" exist, and how people STILL find a way to make them uniquely beautiful.
Captivated by the legendary Leonard Cohen! #Perth
First half of the concert has been amazing. There is something amazing about watching Leonard Cohen skip around on stage
The Leonard Cohen concert is sublime, almost ethereal, the violin playing a stronger role , beautiful, Lenny at the top of his game at 80!
First act thoughts - Leonard Cohen is surprisingly spry and nimble. Skipping of stage. Sublime first act.
There's an actual inverval! Leonard Cohen is amazing; pure craft & experience carrying the day.
Two trips to @PerthArena inside a week. Suffice to say, fair contrast between the crowd for Beyoncé and the Leonard Cohen crew.
Leonard Cohen being amazing. What a gig.
Leonard Cohen in perth. So lucky to have him here.
I think my sore throat has officially reached the level of Leonard Cohen.
Dear Leonard Cohen, quit breaking my heart. #music
We are just back home from the Leonard Cohen concert at Perth Arena. Brilliant concert. Thanks Leonard and your brilliant ensemble.
Surprisingly impressed by Leonard Cohen tonight. He performed for three hours. Not bad for a 79-year-old man!

Leonard Cohen concert, fantastic!
I need all of Leonard Cohen's music in my life right now
Only after I started painting a portrait of a young Leonard Cohen did I realize that he looked almost exactly like Al Pacino in the 60’s.
Leonard Cohen is a genius i just love what he did to the word hallellujah he expanded minds that assume too much
I love Leonard Cohen
And then I figured out Richard Cohen is not Leonard Cohen. My confusion has lessened and so has my give-a-damn meter.
Still I am going to put Leonard Cohen on,cheers me up.
Reporter break: Still shivering from sounds of singer Emma Hunter from Mowat. She sung the national anthem and Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.
Been wondering just what happened in 1960s Canada to produce heart cartographers like Neil Young, Joni Mitchell & Leonard Cohen.
Leonard Cohen. Daft Punk. That's it. (What, are there other bands in the world?)"
Just threw in a Leonard Cohen reference that probably no one else will get. #NaNoWriMo #thingstocutinrevisions
Holy fuck joni mitchell and leonard cohen used to date??? If they had had kids their offspring would have just ended songwriting.
But is there anything more dangerous than to encourage the Cohen-ness at heart right before the month of FamousBlueRaincoat? =)

I say all Leonard Cohen, all the time. : )

..True.. Hundreds of loser's anthems are written everyday but non of them functions better/worse than L.Cohen

I think Leonard Cohen helps us find that state of grace. (As he eloquently explains here):

Though not by setting the song as alarm clock =) Hate to admit it but he (or his lyrics) is somewhat a point of reference for me
If I said I'm listening to Leonard cohen's Suzanne at 5.08am in GBaie then everyone will prob clock the rum is defo talking now...
Liam, 2.5: "I want k.d.lang hallelujah not that other guy." [Leonard Cohen] Arguing cover versions already, man.
leonard cohen soothes me
I have a table now, and a chair, so I'm eating this quesadilla like an adult: listening to Leonard Cohen and pretending I have candlesticks.

Weird, Leonard Cohen's oven is in my house.
from Montréal, Québec
Fucked. Listening to Leonard Cohen in L's front room. You should pop round. We'll have a LOVELY time
Happy birthday... !!! Let me play some more Leonard Cohen for you my friend! xx

if you're going to play some Leonard Cohen, at least make it dirty like I'm Your Man or Chelsea Hotel No. 2, man ;)

Mi pijama es un short para nadar y una playera vieja de Piolín. ¿Qué usara Leonard Cohen? De seguro duerme forrado en un traje Armani.
My pajamas are swim shorts and an old Piolín t shirt. What would Leonard Cohen wear? I'm sure he sleeps wrapped up in an Armani suit.

#leonardcohen, I only know I want to see you again:
Am thinking of writing a poem called "I only have ankles in the morning".

Sounds like a particularly cryptic Leonard Cohen song. "I only have ankles in the morning / all of your evenings are toes"

Really? I'm not much of a Cohen fan so I'll take your word for that.

Or Bob Dylan, if you prefer.

it made me think of T S Eliot for some reason (in a good, slightly trippy way)

I shall wear my trousers rolled, and put my cankles out on show.

I have measured out my life in spoons of baby formula.
If you like Mumford and Sons, wait until you hear Bob Dylan or Leonard Cohen! You'll lose your head!
aw heck my relatives want me to sing Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah at the thing for the 40 days after grandpa's passing awwww heck
#LeonardCohen's I'm Your Man is just so, so sexy. #onrepeat

In My Secret Life by Leonard Cohen is a jewel at these times, well, at all times but more so at these untimely times.
Early Leonard Cohen HAS to be a lesbian with a deep voice. The dude in photos is Milli Vanilli. Those songs are totally about dyke drama.
My mind has become a super-saturated solution of the Leonard Cohen album "I’m Your Man." Not helping with my study, might just go to bed.
The $144 I spent on the Leonard Cohen ticket was by far the best $144 I've ever spent

not gunna front I don't understand written poetry ever but I really just like reading things Leonard Cohen has written.

okay so the following is a part of the cutest fuckin poem I have ever read and it's by my babe Leonard Cohen alright here goes it

Leonard Cohen calls vaginas "the source of life" then goes on to say "I've it to tell you, friends, I prefer my stuff to theirs." CUTIE.
One of my favourite Grandma quotes: "Leonard Cohen keeps falling into avalanches and then writing songs about them"

"if you are not clear about which spiders are poisonous, kill them all" kill you for being so stinkin cute Mr Cohen

no spider is poisonous so kill none

I don't kill spiders.... they're just trying to do the lords work.

they're venomous btw that was the joke. If you bite it and die, it's poisonous. If it bites you and you die it's venomous

I'm sure Leonard Cohen just really didn't want people to eat spiders. I want a pet spider id name it spider.

I have 4 do you want one

that one has lil pink toes. Look up avicularia avicularia

thrixopelma cyaneum
Escuchando Leonard Cohen con este clima me imagino que morire de hipotermia con un cigarro en la mano o algo asi
Listening to Leonard Cohen with this weather I imagine that I'll die of hypothermia with a cigarette in my hand or something like that.
