After enthusiastic audience cheers and applause for his one handed solo in Tower Of Song, Leonard Cohen responded first with his usual gracious...
You are so very kind
Then he added something I had never heard him say at any of the other World Tour concerts I had attended or in any of  the World Tour videos I had watched on YouTube.

What he said next was very touching, especially so, because the almost three year long World Tour was about to conclude the following night...
You know how to spoil an old man
 Cued to start at 1.20 when he begins his one handed solo

This is the same Tower Of Song video featured in a previous post, when Leonard Cohen paid tribute to his back up singers in his outro. click here
