“Yeah, The Women Tear Their Blouses Off” – At The 2009 Leonard Cohen San Jose Show

Audience Gets Rowdy
Leonard Cohen & Crew Get Distracted
We Get The Albert Noonan Video

 

Yeah the women tear their blouses off
and the men they dance on the polka-dots

From “Closing Time”
By Leonard Cohen

 

Albert Noonan, better known in Cohen Country as albertnoonan, Vizier Of Videography, was good enough to alert Cohencentric not only to his uploading of Leonard Cohen’s performance of “Closing Time” from the San Jose show, but also to the necessity of removing any minors from the room prior to the viewing of this recording, in order to shield innocent children from exposure to this raucous rendition of the classic Cohen tune.

Yes, what you see is what happened – a fusillade of feminine apparel is launched from the audience onto the stage, whoops are whooped, the unflappable Leonard Cohen loses his place in the song (1:18), and, in general, a good time is certainly had by all.
