LC will start a new world tour this summer. LC will come to europe again. I’m only sure of 1 concert yet; concert in Belgium (Ghent - St petersquare) on the 12 th and 14th of august 2012. Tickets on sale on the 30th of march (sherpa.be)
Previously (Mar. 16):
Our Leonard also has a new CD from “Old ideas” and the 77-year-old Canadian bard is still active. Who knows if that man is back to St. Peter’s Square for a wonderful end of summer, and if so, it has been agreed to rename the square finally to the St. Leonard’s Square.

The leading Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat announced today that Leonard Cohen will be giving a concert in Helsinki on September 2.
Previously at LC Forum, Mar. 19-21:
Both of my sons heard on the radio X3M that Leonard is coming to Finland for a consert in august.
Is this true or just a joke?
I don’t think it is a joke, they are just repeating the same rumor that has recently been going around in Europe.
Nothing has been confirmed yet…
I have made some inquiries and am now confirming that Leonard is not going to have a concert in Helsinki in August…

There’s something different about Jarkko’s signature….
mnkyface, Feb. 19
Other than a load of space at the bottom for new concerts what else is different?
There was no period after the 2 bars before…
Please notice that Jarkko has added a second full stop/ period to his signature.
Wissmann6, Mar. 19
Someone noticed the three dots in Jarkko’s signature?
BEATRIZ SALLES, Mar. 21
Two epilogues to this post:
cpl593h: “OK, let’s have a grown-up debate here: Who, in all reasonableness and all honesty, would say that LC will tour next year?”
Jarkko: “Leonard has not decided yet, so the discussion is just speculation. Sooner or later we will find out…”
Pietro: “Hmm… three dots????? Is there a code in this, or perhaps it is just my too wild imagination??????????”
After all these years and more to come we will able to write a compendium on Finnish psychology and anthropology.

Rodin hints at Summer. Great conversation after that.
Having played two landmark concerts there in 2008, Hot Press has learned that an application has been made for a licence to stage a Leonard Cohen gig again in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham. If green-lighted, which seems a formality, the Canadian legend will play Dublin in either August or September.
