    Why is Leonard Cohen by passing Montreal?

    Lessee. He's playing Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Hamilton, London, Quebec, Kingston, and Ottawa twice, but no Montreal. Huh?
    The mounties always get their man.

    I'm also surprised he's bypassing Toronto, even though he lives there. My vote is on Dustin Hoffman to play him in his movie bio!!

    I've been told that he lives in the Plateau. I didn't even notice that he's skipping TO. He did play both Montreal and Toronto at the start of this tour last June. Maybe he'll end up finishing in these two cities.

    It's possible he's moved from Toronto. A doctor friend of mine treated him a few years ago. I'm surprised he'd be living in the plateau area of Mtl.

    Not too far from where he grew up I guess.

    But yes you would think Montreal and Toronto would be no-brainers. Perhaps the tour promotors couldn't make it work.

    The Plateau is not the working class area it was 40 years ago. In fact, it's been called "the coolest neighborhood in North America" by Wallpaper magazine and one of the 15 "hippest neighborhoods in North America" by the Utne Reader. I wouldn't be surprised to learn he's living there at all, particularly in Mile End, which is technically part of the Plateau.

    Le Plateau was so cool for so long that it has become kind of uncool.

    The Mile End might be the exception.
