I wasn't planning to go ... I basically thought about it a while back but didn't get around to getting a ticket. The story of my life. ;-) But this afternoon when I talked to Anéa, she suggested we try to get some tickets ... online or wherever ... and go to the concert if we could manage it. Anéa, thank you!! Fantastic idea!! :-)
We did get hold of tickets from some random guy online and got to the stadium about 20 minutes before Cohen came on stage. (Yeah, we didn't care about the opening act. :-) I am SO happy that we went!! The show was wonderful, absolutely fantastic, and lasted much longer than we expected. That guy's got stamina!! Seriously, we were impressed. 74 years old, but seemed to be still energetic after almost three hours on stage. Yeah, we were impressed. :-)
This was basically just a fantastic show. An absolutely wonderful experience. I'm so happy I got to be there ... along with 12 ooo other fans who all had such a great time. It really was a once in a lifetime opportunity ... this was his 11th concert in Norway, but the last one was 15 years ago. Kind of before my time. :-) Who knows but that this may have been his last concert here?
This is what we saw ...
And this is what Cohen saw. :-)
He really liked seeing this. Our flag and his, waving in the wind together. :-)
Happy Canada Day to Canadians everywhere!! I was happy to spend it with one of your greatest living countrymen. :-)
