40 Years Ago:1 Peter, Frank, & The Sept 28, 1974 Leonard Cohen Circus Krone, Munich Show
I recently received this message from Peter Offermann:
Frank, a friend of old schooldays, found this photo he took during a concert we had the opportunity to attend, and finally I found the ticket. I cannot name the date precisely, it must have been a few days after the master’s 40th anniversary, at “Circus Krone,” Munich. May the Lord bless and keep him.
Peter goes on:
Indeed I remember L.C. introducing the “Sisters of mercy” with words like: “Dedicated to the young ladies who helped me to get out of a snowstorm near Edmonton.”
We were 21, 22 years and just two kids with a lot of crazy dreams…Some of them came true.

According to the LCFiles the 1974 Munich concert took place on September 28. Sister of Mercy was song nr 21 on the setlist.
What a world it was and what wonderful dreams we had then! Hope you still have some!
