Leonard Cohen – Het Muziektheater, Amsterdam April 19, 1988
Pete Purnell, who took these photos, writes:
This theatre is in fact the opera house and in 1988 it had been open for little more than a year. This was the first “pop” concert to be held there. The afternoon before the show I happened to walk past hoping for a glimpse of Leonard in the wild. All I saw was the tour-bus parked outside and in the window on the top deck of the bus was a poster with a portrait of Leonard as if he were actually sitting there.
