First We Take Manhattan, Then We Take Alpha Centauri
Cohencentric investigators have discovered surreptitious negotiations between NASA and Leonard Cohen’s management group to launch a Unified Heart Space Station to serve as a base for a Leonard Cohen concert tour that will roam indefinitely throughout the cosmos.
As shown above, the road crew is already at work preparing the specialized equipment needed for Cohen’s latest musical jaunt. Attached notes indicate that these technicians are making the necessary adjustments to assure that, in the zero gravity environment, an episode of overenthusiastic skipping does not result in the Canadian singer-songwriter spinning endlessly through the infinity of outer space.
The Preliminary Schedule
While details are sketchy, it appears that the first portion of the schedule will be modeled on the 2008 Tour with concerts taking place in smaller, more intimate venues, probably asteroids and moons in the periphery of our own solar system where the performances can be honed before playing the larger galaxies.
