The 2010 Helsinki Concert Photos

Maarten Massa’s photos of Leonard Cohen and, especially, the band members and backup singers from the August 10, 2010 Helsinki concert are among the best taken during the entire 2008-2010 tour. In addition to the shots displayed in this post, many other photos from the Helsinki show can be found at Leonard Cohen in Helsinki – Aug 10 2010: Part 1 and Part 2.

Video: Leonard Cohen – I Tried To Leave You + Thank You To Jarkko

That the final song of the August 10, 2010 Leonard Cohen Helsinki Concert was “I Tried To Leave You” was hardly a surprise. Nor were the solo performances by the band members and backup singers unexpected.

Unique to the Helsinki show, however, were Leonard Cohen’s words of appreciation, following the completion of “I Tried To Leave You,” for the role Jarkko Arjatsalo and his website, LeonardCohenFiles.com, played in keeping Cohen’s songs alive when his “voice wasn’t heard very often in very many places.”

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.
