Leonard Cohen 2013 Tour? My Morning Smile

October 1, 2012

I found this ad on Google and took a screenshot. "2013" gave me a big smile


  1. Oh I hope so. 2013 in the southern hemisphere would be brilliant. I am planning my itinerary in my mind as I type this.

  2. I have written this twice - so I hope my computer does not deecide to erase this third attempt. My brother and I were at the Nokia concert on November 5, 2012. My brother just turned 71 and I will be 64 in January. We were born and raised in Los Angeles - in fact our Granmother was born in Los Angeles in 1894. Over our many years we have gone to hundreds (no exaggeration) of concerts. My brother took me to my first concert in 1963 at the Santa Monica Civic. From Joan Baez and Bob Dylan to the Beatles, Stones, and so on and so on. My younger brother even managed the Whiskey from 1979 through 1984. So, over the years we have seen "concert goers" regress from enthusiastic, excited and well versed in the performer/performers at shows to being "happening people" at the "IN" concert of the month. It hurts my soul to have people performing for people who have no idea who they are, where they came from or what their music means and is saying. Mr. Cohen's performance at the Nokia was not just one of the best my brother and I have ever seen, but we both agreed that it was the best! The eerily Angelic voices of the women, the unique and extremely accomplished musicians coupled with the extraordinary performance of Mr. Cohen made the night one of the most memorable occassions of both of our lives. SO, Mr. Cohen, I apologize for the ignorants, and I say THANK YOU for all who truly appreciate and love your music, poetry and you!
