Final Moments Of The Wet, Wonderful Weybridge Show
The July 11, 2009 Leonard Cohen Weybridge concert is a show well worth recalling. As dorsetbays, the photographer who took the above shot summarized,
Leonard Cohen put on an amazing concert at the Mercedes Benz Arena, Surrey on 11 July 2009. The weather was atrocious, heavy rain and gale force winds, but the atmosphere was electric.
Indeed, by all accounts, the concert was a Tour highlight as the performance of Cohen and his musicians and the response of the crowd simply overwhelmed the impact of the wind and rain. Consequently, I was happy to discover this video of “Whither Thou Goest” and Leonard Cohen’s blessings to the audience at Weybridge.
For an account of the show and outstanding photos and videos from the concert, I immodestly recommend two Cohencentric posts, Photos: Leonard Cohen’s Wet, Wonderful Weybridge Show – 2009 and Video: Leonard Cohen’s Stellar Performance Of Closing Time At The 2009 Weybridge Show/Storm,

- Wouldn’t “The Blessings Of Weybridge” be a dandy name for a BBC sitcom?” [↩]
