‘Famous Blue Raincoat’ ushers in a tranche of encores, culminating in a charming singalong cover of ‘Save The Last Dance For Me’. It’s a fitting conclusion to a beautiful union of souls, a concert with the warmth and fraternal devotion evident in Cohen’s sweetly caring salutation, the kind of sentiment that just wouldn’t occur to less zen-conscious performers: ‘May you be surrounded by family and friends all your life; but if this is not your lot, may the blessings find you in your solitude’.
