Cohen Casts a Spell from LoveYouLeonard, 02/09/13
Leonard Cohen mesmerised and thrilled a packed crowd with a concert of stunning power and emotion. Supported by a band of supreme quality, including Javier Mas and the incomparable vocal support of Sharon Robinson and the Webb sisters, he treated us to a succession of his greatest songs, delivered with his signature emotional commitment and technical excellence.
The lone voice from the audience who shouted, I love you, spoke for all of us. A few weeks short of his 79th birthday, the maestro is gratifyingly energetic and maintains his intense rapport with his audience. Songs ranged from some of the 60s classics to material from the most recent album. First We Take Manhattan was pulsating and Sharons rendition of Alexandra Leaving was heart-rendingly beautiful.
Please keep going Leonard. We need to see you back again soon.
