Leonard Cohen 2012 Tour Band

Mar. 26, 2012 @ 4:10 AM _

Dear Friends,
 
Here is the tour band:
 
Roscoe Beck - bass & vocal (Musical Director)
Sharon Robinson - vocal
Charlie and Hattie Webb - vocal, guitar, harp
Neil Larsen - keyboard, accordion, brass instruments
Bob Metzger - guitar, steel guitar, vocal
Javier Mas - acoustic guitar, oud & misc string instrument
Rafael Gayol  - drums & percussion
Dino Soldo - keyboard, saxophone, wind instruments & vocal
Alexandru Bublitchi - violin
 
As you can see, the only change is the addition of Alex Bublitchi.  Alex was the violinist for Acordes con Leonard Cohen, the series of Spanish tribute concerts that resulted in an album.  Acordes con Leonard Cohen was when we were first introduced to Javier Mas.
 
Here are two videos from Acordes con Leonard Cohen that feature Alex:
 
The Gypsy’s Wife

 
Dance Me To The End Of Love

 
And here is Alex performing with Javier and Mario, Javier’s son, last summer

ZaGeP @ LC Forum

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.

Mingela @ LC Forum

Previously at LC Forum, Mar. 19-21:

Netti:

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?

Jarkko:

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…

Jarkko:

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?

musicmania

There was no period after the 2 bars before…

mnkyface

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:

1) Oct. 20, 2011

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??????????”

2) 

After all these years and more to come we will able to write a compendium on Finnish psychology and anthropology. ;-) ;-)

Dublin

Feb. 18, 2012 @ 3:23 PM _

Rodin hints at Summer. Great conversation after that.

Mar. 24:

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.

it’s certainly in the air

A tour is being booked.  Whether I’m going to show up … I haven’t signed on for it yet, but it’s certainly in the air.
