To Celebrate Leonard coming to town

As you readers all know this blog is all Australian with a
bit of New Zealand thrown in, however a break with
tradition and an album that includes artists that come
from overseas. The reason for this special post is
Leonards coming and I shelled out $400 for 2
tickets, the single most expensive concert Ive
payed for, but you know its not likely he'll be back again.
Its only money as a friend said who also shelled out the same.

Can't wait, been waiting for this and was kind of resigned
to the concept that it would never happen.
On this fantastic tribute album we find some Australian
artists, my pick would be Robert Foster doing Tower
of Song. Which according to an interview about
this record, when Leonard was asked what song he
would pick if invited to contribute
"Tower of Song’ because it is easy to sing.
I don’t like things which are too complicated.."
So lets hear from Leonard fans both here in
Australia and all over who are taking the
opportunity to see a living legend do his thing.
