I have once again poached photos of the latest Leonard Cohen concert from the Leonard Cohen blog, Notes From The Road, These shots, however, are special for two reasons. First, I met Joey Carenza, whose duties as the Road Manager of the Leonard Cohen Tour, include, among many others, shooting photos for that blog and it turns out he is happy about this use of his shots, neatly transforming this activity from larceny to sharing. Second, I discovered that, prior to our meeting, Joey had serendipitously taken and posted a photo of the Oct 31, 2012 sound check (the image atop this post) that captured not only Leonard Cohen but also Duchess and me (the two tiny figures on the viewer’s lower right) as the entire audience.

Concert Performances Of “The Guests”
Leonard Cohen’s performance of “The Guests” at the Oct 5, 2012 Madrid concert was the first time he had sung that song in concert since the February 2, 1985 Wiesbaden show. Previously, “The Guests” had been a setlist fixture throughout his 1979 and 1980 tours; it was also played at the Jan 31, 1985 Mannheim concert.1
