First We Take Manhattan, Then We Take Alpha Centauri
After discovering the Leonard Cohen Intergalactic Tour poster (shown above) in the Chicago Rosemont Theatre dressing room assigned to Cohen at last week’s concert, Heck Of A Guy Editor and Publisher, DrHGuy, unleashed this blog’s best agents to investigate.
That team of reporters has now ascertained that the recent announcement of the extension of the Leonard Cohen World Tour to exotic venues in France, Croatia, and Russia in 2010 is a deliberately designed distraction to avert attention from the final phases of surreptitious negotiations between NASA and Cohen’s management group to launch the Unified Heart Space Station in early 2011. That vessel will serve as a base for a Leonard Cohen concert tour that will roam indefinitely through the furthest reaches of space.
As shown above, the road crew is already at work preparing the specialized equipment needed for Cohen’s latest musical jaunt. Attached notes indicate that these technicians are making the necessary adjustments to assure that, in the zero gravity environment, an episode of overenthusiastic skipping does not result in Leonard Cohen spinning endlessly through the infinity of outer space.
The Preliminary Schedule
While details are sketchy, it appears that the first portion of the Tour will take place within the smaller, more intimate planets and moons of our own solar system where the performances can be honed before playing the larger galaxies.
