A Visit From St. Leonard
A Visit From St. Leonard …. otherwise known as Leonard Cohen, whose visit I was looking forward to so much more than that of the other guy whose last name begins with the letter “C”. Revered Canadian poet and singer Leonard Cohen, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008, is blessed with a marvelous baritone voice and a large repertoire of rather bleak songs that combine the religious and the sexual. Backed by a stellar group of musicians and backup singers, he entertained his London fans for over three hours with songs from recent albums, and old favourites like “Chelsea Hotel”, “Suzanne”, “Hallelujah” and “Bird on the Wire” – it was a Leonard lovefest all around.
From A Visit From St. Leonard, a report on the Dec 11, 2012 London, Ontario Leonard Cohen Concert posted Dec 13, 2012 at Forest City Fashionista. The post also contains several photos.
