He was fantastic tonight. Warm, modest, charming; got a standing ovation just for walking on stage. 4 encores. Oh, he's wonderful.

Just read the review in The Observer - sounds fantastic ! I love LC but dh finds him very depressing [

I've never found him depressing, rather on the cheerful side by my standards. That may say something about my taste in music.

we used to lie aroun d at art school listening to 'Rremembering Greensleeves' which is pretty dire though

Wow! I love Leonard Cohen. Very very thought provoking. The man is a genius.

I'm so pleased to have found this thread. I'm taking my sister to see him tonight at the O2 and I was rather worried that I would be bored/depressed/something else not nice.

Now I'm rather looking forward to it. Thank you all.

I'm so glad to have dug this thread up. I went to see him on Friday at the O2 with DH who got the tickets for my birthday and went along to humour me, and even he left converted.

I adore him. That voice . I cried through parts of it. He was wonderful.
