Leonard Cohen in Aarhus


An attentive audience in front of the open air stage, silently listening, swaying, rocking and humming to the lyrics and music of Leonard Cohen. Cohen is called the master of melancholy. And so it was: a gentle and beautiful atmosphere radiated from the singer and his band – so you could nothing but laugh and cry and laugh and cry…

I was there with my dad and my daughters…  to say hello …and propably godbye… to the great Canadian poet.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
That’s how the light gets in.
That’s how the light gets in.

(From Anthem)

    Being Canadian myself, I love Leonard Cohen. That bit from anthem is like my mantra. It’s my favourite of all his lyrics. Very cool that you got to see him live!

    What a wonderful opportunity! Wish he were playing in the states these days. Not only do I love his words and music, I find him a great inspiration for visual artworks. Lucky you!
