When I rocked up to the venue, I was told that I was the only photographer and was escorted right to the front of the stage and with about 10,000 people behind me, I got to snap my little heart out of the silverest of all silver foxes in the universe. Oh my, when he fell to his knees to sing about a metre in front of me, I almost wet my pants with happiness.
After I handed over my camera, I was very kindly seated in fifth row centre to be entertained over four hours of stunning music. Leonard Cohen was captivating and absolutely gracious towards his amazing band and his audience. He took his hat off to listen to the solos and to bow and the end of each song.
It was such an incredible night!
