While The Audience Waits In The Street – Leonard Cohen’s 2012 Ghent Concerts


Erik Soberon, who took these photos, writes

When I went back to listen to the concert again from behind the fences in the street, I was not alone, hundreds filled the streets to hear his voice, many like me (as I overheard) for a second time. Also many students who couldn’t afford a ticket, or get one in time.  There were chairs and cushions brought, there was sing-along, waltz-dancing, women were swaying their hips on the music, all looking into the black night. It was a very unusual experience which I enjoyed.

I wonder if this happens in every town…

    Not at all surprised at the crowds listening to LC from outside ….If I had been in the audience, I would have done likewise, and had a second listen before leaving…an added plus. I think most of his fans feel they just cannot get enough of Leonard, myself included
