The Amazon UK price for the DVD set is £16.90. Do you honestly think that is a lot of money for a DVD and 3 CDs??

I am SO HAPPY and thankfull, that a whole Show will be released!
A full length Leonard-Cohen-Performance with all this wonderful musicians, each and everyone a "true Master of his own"...
It is JUST A PURE GIFT for me, and let me say: 3 CDs and 1 DVD (or BlueRay) for this price....
I am really wondering about the ones who say this is expensive.
But: this is in the eye of the beholder.

What counts for me (and I think for many others) is: a new Live-CD/DVD with a full-length-Recording from one of the last Shows in Europe from the last Tour 2013...
I have to say: I just be happy about it!
And, believe me: this are good news right now, this announcement came just at the right time....
So thank you, Mr. Cohen and all of the people, who's involved in this project.

One thing could be "topping" this news: the next announcement: "The Popular Problems Tour 2015"....
Let's wait and see (and hope)...
Thank you, Leonard Cohen!

Too expensive for me. My pre-ordered DVD/ 3 CD box cost £16.89 with free P&P from Amazon UK. That means I would be paying £33+ for a T shirt, postcard set and a programme that I've already got. They've got the pricing wrong on this one IMO.

Americans should pay attention to its pricing on Blowitoutahere:

http://www.blowitoutahere.com/live-in-d ... 8750355928

The link goes towards the Blu-ray and 3 CDs set. At the moment, it's priced at $33 and code "HALLOWEEN2014" brings 15% off that price. That code expires tonight, unfortunately.

Everybody Knows from the new album is now available for download on ITunes. I have to confess, I'm not mad about the recordings of either song released thus far. Too much bass in the vocal and a flat kind of feel that sucks the atmosphere downwards imho. A step backwards from Songs From The Road which I felt was captured just right.

Can also be bought now as a download on amazon .
Kind of agree.These 2 examples are a different mix/sound from what we heard at the live shows , and somehow that difference is off-putting . Could be i'll end up preferring the sound of some of the best audience recordings , but still very eager for the release and may well feel different when i hear the whole thing
Leonard's work resonates

I just watched the video for Everybody Knows. The sound is terrible.

The wonders of modern technology may help those of us who use iTunes ! Somewhere in iTunes , under the Windows tab I think , is a perfectly decent graphic equaliser. Much like some others here , I find Live in London a bit 'flat'. Go to the equaliser window , tick the box , play with the sliders and boost the treble. Soon you end up with something that sounds like the front rows of a concert.
I fancy myself as a an audiophile , and if you choose the correct import settings there need be no quality loss importing into iTunes. I love the equaliser function , and think the unofficial concert recordings also may benefit from a bit of tweaking. All free of charge , and totally reversible - just untick the box.

Happy listening ! If I can help get in touch.

It is unsatisfactory to say the least. I wasn't at that particular gig but I can only assume it's a poor reflection of what transpired. It's worse than Live in London and I wasn't mad on the way that was captured. Looks like this could turn out to be a very disappointing release, fatally flawed by technical issues.

The voices appear to be out of sync with the video and let's hope they are able to capture a little of the Dublin atmosphere in the other songs.
