Leslie and Joy,

I am so glad you two were there so that we could have these glorious reports. Thank you both so very very much!!!!

Affectionate regards,
Mary

Linda,

Thank you for all the work you do on these tweets and links to videos! If anyone can find a link to 'Choices', it would be you. Keeping my fingers crossed on this one.

Hi Mary - and thanks for your kind words. I know - I am on the lookout for video of "Choices." I fear the worst - that there will be none, since it was not uploaded right away. But I also hope for the best. You never know - things appear - sometimes years later ... I personally think that this warrants a APB - broadcast via megaphone throughout all of Manitoba - for everyone to be on the lookout for video of "Choices." ha ha :lol:

Linda

p.s. I just noticed in Leif's NO IDEAS blog for Regina, he reported that "Choices" was one of the songs they did at the sound check - so who knows - but it may be that it will be on the set list again sometime in the future!

Joy, thanks so much for the great report! Sounds like this was a phenomenal concert & a really unique, peak experience, & I'm so happy that you & Leslie were there to experience it,; & thank you for taking the time to share it with all of us.

Along with Choices, I think the world should also be on the lookout for a video of FBR from this concert - oh how I would love to see Leonard cracking up after the "baby" shout-out!! And thank you from me too, Linda & Sue, for all the links & videos & tweets that you have so diligently unearthed for us!

I loved your story, Joy. It made me smile since I played with the idea to go to Regina on short notice. However, it never happened since my cowardice got the upper hand. It is so encouraging to read that it can be done. Good for you. For me, it will be a learning experience as I go along on my way to hopefully become a real forum member one day.

I also loved your detailed and entertaining report. A big thanks to you and all the others who take the time and effort to share their concert impressions and videos with the rest of us.

Dear uncleerwinone
One of my experiences was to go to Red Rocks, Colorado in June 2010. I didn't know any forum members except a handful and only briefly. I was offered a free ticket ( she has forever stayed my 'angel') and at first I thought this is ridiculous. I am not going to travel for a concert and I am definitely going to pay X for this ticket if I go. I had already seen Leonard perform 3 concerts and said they were the best I had seen of all the concerts over my life. I had travelled to one of them but it was only a 2 hour drive and a place close to my hometown.
So all of a sudden I bought a plane ticket, booked a rental car and the same hotel that the forum members were staying in Golden where Red Rock Ampitheater is. Off I went and arrived to pouring rain. The car had problems, I got lost entering Golden and finally arrived at the Holiday Inn. I was just checking in when I heard these women talking on the couch behind me. I walked over to introduce myself to Diana, Mary B, Kelsey and Lizzy and discovered the concert was postponed 2 days due to snow in the mountains! There is a 'Wet Rocks' which is what we called it, thread on the forum somewhere of that 24 hour period. I had to leave at 9am the next morning for home.
Although terribly disappointed I had a great time hanging out with them and Greg from Australia and George and Roman too.
That 24 hour adventure and act of spontaneity showed me I could travel to concerts and that started my journey on the road to see Leonard perform. I haven't regretted one second of it.
I hope you get a chance yourself one of these days.

Hehe - really wet snow, like in rain. If I'm wrong, I plead old age.

yah wet snow and rain Mary you are right...I will never in my life forget the Red Rocks experience which for Kelsey, Greg and I was Wet Rocks as we couldn't stay for the concert. I remember landing at home and talking to you on the phone and thinking I was going to catch the next flight back. Great memories and the beginning of my 'life on the road'. Mary sometimes I still hear you saying to me in Sligo
"getting up Leslie" ok "Leslie getting up." I sat in front of you and you were telling me when you were doing a standing ovation!
I still hear your voice sometimes when I am about to stand up at a performance.

Thanks for the input, Leslie. Great story. Yeah, the Red Rock concert was also on my list of interest. I used to live nearby but never went there. During my time nobody of interest showed up. Of course, I might have been a little bit picky, too.

Reading this thread has been so pleasurable! Thank you, Leslie and Joy, for the details, to the Webb Sisters for that great photo, to everyone who said anything here. WoW! What a night for everyone! Loved reading about Leonard having so much fun!!! And about the contribution that male voice leant to that ;-) . That performance of Closing Time sounds like it was rocking the rafters. And, I know much of Canada and the music world were grateful to him for his paying tributes to those who have passed.

Like everyone else, hoping for "Choices" to show up somewhere. Truth be known, we need you at EVERY concert, Albert!

Wish I could afford to be at every concert.

I love the stories of Nervous Nellies hitting the road, for I am one myself. I said, "I'll go to Paris on June 18 to hear Leonard," and then
I talked myself out of it. Too much pain and stiffness in my shoulders, other wee health issues (think oui, oui) so I chickened out. But
when I read your stories (your glories) I know your travels and travails were unbeatable.
