Feb 26, 2013 – Leonard Cohen Tour Prep Status: “Leonard called the day early…confident he and the band were in a strong position”

Today’s rehearsal is pretty laid back, spent on polishing a few numbers and having fun with some well practiced songs, ad-libbing. They played Passing Through, a song I haven’t heard since I don’t know when. Leonard called the day early, around 6pm, confident he and the band were in a strong position.

Photos: Revelatory Moments & Subtle Gestures – 2013 Leonard Cohen Bournemouth Concert

August 26, 2013 Leonard Cohen Bournemouth Concert

When I first heard from Pete Purnell, he wrote that his goal was to take concert photos that would “capture moments and subtle gestures” of the sort that are rarely caught in the shots favored by sources, such as newspapers and magazines, serving large populations. These photos from the 2013 Leonard Cohen Bournemouth Concert are evidence that he remains committed to this mission.
