PARIS – tuesdays gig was special for a number of reasons . first of all to be able to play at the Olympia (Paris) was incredible – its amazing to see how many legends have played at that venue and to be able to do the same felt pretty surreal
secondly , to nearly sell it out and to play to such an attentive crowd was a total pleasure . a massive thanks to everyone that came down !!!!!
thirdly , my mum and dad came from england to watch the show . my dad used to live in paris in the early 70’s and when i told him months ago that i’d be playing at the olympia he laughed and told me that he’d seen Leonard Cohen play there in 1972 .
it just so happens that both my mum and dad have birthdays around this time of year so for a joint birthday present i booked them a little trip to paris to coincide with the show .
it was an amazingly emotional experience for me and i think for them too . what a crazy world this is – for my dad to have been in a room in paris as a man in his twenties watching leonard cohen and then forty years later to go back to the same place to watch his son perform …. bizarre and pretty cool !! anyway , sorry if this is a bit self indulgent but just wanted to share it with you all .
