The Man with the Golden Voice

The Leonard Cohen concert was just so good.

And did I mention I was sitting in the front row?

If he's playing anywhere you — just go.

As Simon Sweetman (DomPost critic) says here: "It is hard work having to put this concert in to words so I'll just say something I have never said in a review before and will never say again: this was the best show I have ever seen."

We also quote this LC poem:

"I heard of a man
who says words so beautifully
that if he only speaks their name
women give themselves to him.

If I am dumb beside your body
while silence blossoms like tumors on our lips
it is because I hear a man climb stairs
and clear his throat outside our door."

I took a photo & a v short video before my camera got shut down. Will post anon.
