P1000638The October 29, 2009 Chicago Rosemont Concert was marvelous for many reasons, including the premiere performance of “Feels So Good.” On a personal level, it was a never-to-be-forgotten event because I attended my first Leonard Cohen soundcheck and then met Leonard face to face for the first time before the show.  That experience is featured in these posts:

These photos were taken at the 2009 Rosemont show by Elizabeth Sweet,1 who proved to be not only an outstanding photographer but also a delight as my companion during this incredible adventure.

I am especially happy about the photo below of Javier Mas and Dino Soldo because (1) it captures the 17 nanoseconds of the show during which Dino Soldo was immobile. and (2) it demonstrates how commanding his presence can be even when he is stationary.

Joseph Carenza III, the Leonard Cohen Tour Road Manager, offers a batch of photos of the preparation for and execution of the Dec 13, 2012 Leonard Cohen Kingston Concert, some of which are dramatic, others of which are intriguing, and all of which are entertaining.

cohenPaolo Brillo contributes these photos from the August 29, 2009 Concert at the O2 Arena in Prague. I’m especially taken by the Full Joe Friday look of the shot of Leonard Cohen atop this post and the ultra-wholesome, some might even say “angelic” portrait of Charley Webb.
