My wings, so far into the heavens!
And so much pain in the heart torn between."
- Juan Ramon Jimenez, 1976. (Spanish poet)
A spokesman for his tour said Cohen had been suffering from food poisoning.
The concert was stopped as fellow band members and others rushed to his aid. After regaining consciousness, the singer hoped to resume his performance, but he suffered continued stomach cramps.'
I saw Leonard Cohen perform at the O2 Area last year. I never thought I'd have the chance to see him live considering that he hadn't performed for about 20 years. I love his music and after a few shit scary e-Bay bids I had the opportunity to see him. He was surprisingly energetic for his age and had a cool vibe about him. He'd run off and on the stage for each of his encores (he did like, 10). I hope he gets well soon and back to doing his thing.
