Leonard Cohen Concert Tickets Collection: Cologne – April 10, 1988 & July 1, 2009

The first time I saw Leonard Cohen and the enchanting Perla Batalla on April 10, 1988 in the Kölner Philharmonie I had a seat right in front of the stage in the first row. After the concert, I waited for Leonard for an hour to ask for an autograph. I got it and was happy. The second ticket is from the World Tour 2009. Both concerts are unforgotten.

Angelika’s tickets along with her accompanying memory are an early contribution to the Leonard Cohen Concert Tickets Collection. The concept is that such a collection would prove valuable and enlightening. Toward that end, we’re inviting readers to send in scans or photos of their Leonard Cohen concert tickets to Please enter “Leonard Cohen Tickets” in the Subject Line. We also invite you to add a brief note if the tickets or the show itself holds special meaning.

The goal is to put together a collection for posting and possibly publication.

Be aware that any tickets and information you send may be posted at Cohencentric.com or published elsewhere. Each ticket will include a credit; if you do not wish your real name used, please indicate an acceptable alias. The credits will not include other identifying data, such as email or postal addresses.

Leonard Cohen Plays Radio City Music Hall – 2009

I get off on marquee shots such as the one atop this post. That the marquee is for a Leonard Cohen concert and is attached to a landmark like Radio City Music Hall is just that much better. The photos of Leonard in performance are a nice bonus. The shows took place May 16 & 17, 2009,

Outstanding Photos: Leonard Cohen Nov 20, 2010 Hanging Rock Concert

Thanks so much friends, Thanks for inviting us to this sacred place. It’s a great honor. I promise we’ll give you everything we got tonight.

Hanging Rock, Nov 20, 2010

The above photo of Leonard Cohen, bedecked in a coat, scarf, signature fedora, and sunglasses) and standing behind his trusty keyboard, at the November 20, 2010 Hanging Rock, Australia concert is one of those shots that epitomize a particular performance. In the midst of a cold evening in the isolated, eerie volcanic formation that was the setting for the show, Cohen honored the promise he made at the beginning of the concert: “We’ll give you everything we got tonight.”

The photo below offers a view of both Roscoe Beck (on bass and under beret) and the impeccable but all too often invisible Neil Larsen (playing keyboards and wearing scarf) equipped with stylish shades. Both of these photos1 are by Hazel Anthony, Australia (please do not repost without photographer’s permission).

2010 Leonard Cohen Hanging Rock Concert – Great Music, Great Audience, Great Photos By J.S. Carenza III

There were a few hassles. From audience reports, however, the long, slow trek to the site and the plummeting temperatures after sunset were a small price to pay for the privilege of attending the November 20, 2010 Hanging Rock show. And these images are a striking representation.

We wanted him to leave but he wouldn’t get in the car. Another encore.
