I came away from the Dylan show just glad to have seen a legend, but wondering if maybe he could have done more to win me over. That’s what a performer is. I came away from the Cohen show with a huge smile on my face, my wife and I chattering happily about how it was the best show we’ve ever seen.

This is a thoughtful, intelligent, careful, and respectful comparison of the 2008 Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen concerts in St. John’s that rings true. Just outstanding. Photo by Eugene McLaughlin.

Both the caption, “[Leonard Cohen] was in fantastic form, his voice still golden gravel,” and the outstanding photo of the Chicago Theatre marquee announcing “An Evening With Leonard Cohen” on May 5, 2009 are the work of natesmobile.

Pictured above with Leonard is Michelle Grimaldi, Production Assistant on the 2009 tour. She writes:
Asheville, NC. We had a couple days off before the gig so we had a Halloween party! It was a great night. Great tour. Great friendship. Great memories. Gutted. Oct 31 2009
Thanks to Greta Bertella, who alerted me to this photo
Any ongoing reader who has been paying attention knows of my fondness for marquees. And this specimen on the Minneapolis Orpheum Theatre is beautiful; it’s unrepentantly gaudy, vertigo-inducing, and so outsized that the theatre’s primarily architectural function appears to be serving as a base for this spectacular signage.
This set of three pristine photos by vwvortexer (please do not repost without photographer’s permission) advertising the May 3, 2009 Leonard Cohen show is not only impressive in quality but also includes a rarely seen perspective of the entire theater facade in the third photo
