In the space of 100 seconds, this July 1, 2008 news clip from NRK,1 broadcast in conjunction with his Oslo concert completed earlier that day, includes an outstanding example of a Leonard Cohen sprint onto the stage, drummer Rafael Gayol looking especially dapper in a dark jacket and red tie with white polka dots,2 a sampling of “Dance Me to the End of Love,” and an exchange with Marianne Ihlen.
