The tickets will be sold by http://www.billettservice.no
It would be a good idea to register to their services before the presale
We will have the links in the first message of this thread at 9 am Norwegian time (=Central European Summer time).

Prices Halden = 650 NOK = 82Eur = unseated.
1000NOK = 132EUR = Golden circle in front of stage (sic...)

I dont think you need to rush out to the presale to get unseated tickets.

I wouldn't be so sure about that. Leonard is so popular in Norway that both gigs will sell out in no time.

I have a question about a practical issue concerning my case. I am going to Bergen concert with my wife and 3 kids (8, 6 and 1 years old).

Given their ages, would you know if I have to pay the ticket for my three sons?


Or in any other case, would you know where could I get that information?


Thanks in advance!!

you have to call (or email) the ticket seller (billettservice.no). I don't think they have any kids rates. Please note that Bergen has no seating. Are you sure you survive the long concert with three kids?

Billettservice website states:
"Hvis det ikke står oppgitt noen aldersgrense under arrangementsdetaljer, så har ikke vi mottatt noen informasjon om dette. Kontakt arrangør for mer informasjon."

In English that would read something like: "If an age limit is not mentioned in the details, then we have no other information. Contact the organisers for more information."

In any case, as Jarkko says, a long concert with three children might not be easy.

Get a babysitter. The concert could be close to four hours with intermission, and I doubt if your kids would be silent and sit still for all that time. I'd be concerned about the people sitting near you who have paid good money to see Leonard Cohen and want to enjoy the show.

it is the people who pay with bad money who are the worst. there could be an unpleasant exchange of dirty looks leading to fisticuffs - and that's not nice with youngsters present. remember the last line from leonard's poem in 'the energy of slaves': "men and women are killed right in front of the baby!"

I agree and with the greatest respect, Boro, with what some others have said. Truly, a Leonard Cohen concert is not the place to take children. Even standing, people want to listen respectfully and quietly to Leonard and his group. The likelihood of an unhappy one-year-old, and a possibly irritated six-year-old restless eight-year-old are quite high. People around you would quickly become aggravated and you would lose your own ability to enjoy the concert. At most, I would consider taking the eight-year-old, if he's very mature and certain to listen without interruptions for a very long time [3-3.5 hours is not unusual]. For you and your wife to go together alone would make a highly memorable evening and treasured memory for you both.
