I thought about that too. But with all these wonderful songs I won't complain.DBCohen wrote:One disappointment, though; although there is a violin now, "The Window" was not revived...
Since nobody has quoted this yet, I will do it: At the beginning of the show (and at the end) Leonard has stated that he will continue touring as long as God lets him. (Until "the wheelchair gets rusty") So, if we are lucky, the Old Ideas tour will not be his last.
Also, I loved the double band introduction (During Anthem and Take this Waltz). Did he do that on the last tour too? I only remember him introducing the band during Take This Waltz. Now he also tells us where the different musicians are from. I really liked that part. Especially the introduction of the new "King of the Violin".
And one word about the location: St PetersSquare really is beautiful, however I prefer seeing Leonard perform in a hall. For me, the concert got better at the second half, just because it was getting darker. I think that bright sunlight doesn't catch the mood of songs like Dance Me To The End Of Love and so on. But that's just a personal point of view.
One last word about the belgian promoter: 9Euro (!!) for something to eat is extreme. I have been to a lot of concerts and festivals, and it is expensive everywhere, but this is just way too much. I still cannot believe it. And for everyone who's going to the other concerts: Don't forget to bring coins, toilets are of course not included in a 99Euro ticket price. I rarely complain about such things, but this was just extreme.
