Leonard Cohen on tour, but not in US

Leonard Cohen

One of my favorite things about staying at a Canadian hotel is usually you receive a copy of the Globe and Mail at your door in the morning.

I much prefer it over the
National Post.

In yesterday's Globe and Mail was a
sizzling review of Leonard Cohen's recent concert in Toronto. I hopped onto the singer/songwriter/poet's website, but alas -- his upcoming tour doesn't include any place close to my home here on Whidbey Island. In fact, it's mostly European, with a few dates in Montreal at the end of June.

His earlier dates included eastern Canada, but nothing out west.

I'll have to settle for picking up one of his remastered early albums.
