Leonard Cohen – First We Take Manhattan
Paris: Sept 29, 2012
Video by albertnoonan
And I thank you for those items that you sent me
The monkey and the plywood violin
I practiced every night, now I’m ready
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin
This video has a lot going for it: a strong performance, an enthusiastic audience, a beaming Sharon Robinson, a dandy stare-down between Leonard & Javier, and a cameo by The Monkey. What’s not to like?
Note: The best available video of each of the 40 songs performed during the 2012 Leonard Cohen Old Ideas World Tour can be found at the Best Of 2012 Leonard Cohen Tour Video Setlist.
