Montreal’s ‘Favourite Son’ Receives Warm Welcome Home

This week, Leonard took his ‘Old Ideas World Tour’ to Montreal, where he played two shows to the delight of his fans. Here’s what the Montreal press had to say:

Montreal Gazette: “Wednesday night’s superb performance, his first of two, was generously long, at almost three hours, and beautifully executed. The songs remain the star of the show. A stirring Who By Fire, the brilliant blues rocker Darkness, the reassuring Anthem, a deliriously received Tower of Song, a hushed and mesmerizing Suzanne, the ominous Waiting For the Miracle and a simply gorgeous Show Me the Place were among highlights too numerous to single out.”

Journal de Montreal: “Dans un décor sobre, uniquement composé d’un rideau en arrière-scène, celui qui a récolté des critiques dithyrambiques depuis le début de ce nouveau périple mondial, lancé au mois d’août, a tout de suite ensorcelé la foule avec sa profonde et magnifique voix.”
