Leonard Cohen hates Canberra

By johnboy 30 July 2013 32

News has the itinerary for the upcoming (and very possibly final Leonard Cohen tour.

It seems the great man can manage to play Cairns, Wollongong, and Geelong, but Canberra in its centenary year is a bit much of a hick town.

who is Leonard Cohen ? I just you tubed him and I don’t think we missed much.

phew…Thanks for that! Without your in-depth anaysis and critical review, we may have made a grave error. Cheers mate!

(You tit.)

I was going to put it a little more tactfully than our friend Mr. Dover, but yeah, you’re showing your ignorance a bit on this one. A good way to describe Leonard Cohen would be to say that he’s (almost certainly) your favourite song-writer’s favourite song-writer.

Llewellyn Hall is considered to be far superior to the Sydney Opera House.

Llewellyn Hall is a bit small for the great LC. He would easily sell 5thousand tickets in Canberra and the only venue which holds that many is Canberra Stadium which would be way too big.

The AIS Arena is pretty much exactly that size.

Maybe, but hardly a suitable venue for a popular culture event. I’ve always thought that they need to install seat belts to stop patrons plummeting to their death.

I remember last time he added a concert in Hunter Valley or Hobart 6 weeks before he came so maybe all hope for Canberra is not lost.

Otherwise, I’ll be travelling to Brisbane, Sydney and Wollongong to see my idol one last time

Having seen kd lang (who apparently doesn’t hate Canberra, as she did stop by) do her version live, I’m afraid that Messrs Wainwright and Cohen both pale for me.

I’ve never found much value in anything Buckley has ever done, least of all his Hallelujah cover.

Buckley is like a poster boy for bland sincerity.

He has talent, but little soul.

Has talent? Do you own an ouija board?

This got a laugh out of me I’ll admit.

Paul Kelly plays there Sunday August 18.

Good enough for Kelly, good enough for Cohen.

Canberra has no suitable venues. Sure, you can pack people in, but the audio quality of the main options if appalling. Many tops acts come here once only never to return – And for good reason.
