LEONARD COHEN Manchester Opera House
Last night we went to see Leonard Cohen, which was a pretty big deal on account of he's our favourite singer-songwriter of all time and somebody we never thought we'd get to see. We were lucky enough to have front row seats (thanks to the Guardian) and clandestine photo-ops (thanks to Laetitia's Dad buying her a new camera and Laetitia's bravery in the face of officious live nation employees enforcing their no photo policy). He played for about three hours, and was as commanding and as funny as we expected. He was also as humble and gracious as any performer you could imagine.
