BREAD AND ROSES CONCERTS IN 1980

Post by jim devlin »

If anyone can help me on this I'd be very grateful...
My researches show that Leonard was advertised as a Special Guest on October 3, 1980 - with Jennifer Warnes and 'Passenger' ... can anyone verify that Leonard actually did perform ? If so, which song/s?? I do have a photograph of Leonard backstage with Mitch Watkins, taken by the esteemed Alberto Manzano ... but cannot find any reviews of the show, although I was told the Oakland Tribune newspaper described the ? his? their ? performance of 'Memories' as "a lark" ...
Anyone reading this: did you go to that show? Can you provide any details ?
Thanks in advance if there's someone who can help ...

The caption for this photo was.
BERKELEY, CA - 1983: L-R Leonard Cohen and Jennifer Warnes with unidentified friends perform live at The Greek Theatre in 1983 in Berkeley, California. (Photo by Richard McCaffrey/ Michael Ochs Archive/ Getty Images)
I assumed that the year was wrong and it was 1980. Was I wrong?

Thanks Marie ... that photo looks 1980; we have no details of any Leonard concert involvement in 1983, so the date should be 1980, as Sharon is there with Jennifer, who did not tour in 1980 with Leonard on the 'Recent Songs' tour.
