Leonard Cohen announces summer 2013 arena tour
The acclaimed singer follows up recent Juno Awards with UK and Ireland shows, tickets on sale now
Last year's "Old Ideas", Leonard Cohen's first new album in 8 years, has proven to be something of a comeback. A Top 5 chart success in over ten countries, a #1 smash in four of those (#2 in the UK), his distinctive and plaintive gravelly baritone never seems to age nor drop out of fashion.
For those who thought the Canadian was only about singing "Hallelujah", think again. Better still, seek out his masterworks such as his 1967 debut, "Songs of Leonard Cohen", his surprisingly triumphant '80s collection "I'm Your Man" (surprising because Britain was gripped by acid-house in those days) and the poetic 2004 set "Dear Heather".
As proof of just how 'in' Leonard Cohen is these days, he recently scooped two Juno Awards in his native Canada, one for Songwriter of the Year and the other for Artist of the Year 2013. All of which will translate into fast ticket-sales when his next tour goes up for purchase.
Leonard will be touring the UK in the late summer, starting with Bournemouth on 26th August, followed by Brighton, Manchester and further arenas until London's O2 Arena on 14th September, his second visit to the venue this year (his earlier show in June has sold out, bar a few Premium tickets).
Tickets are on sale now, priced from £25 to £75.
Ireland will also experience Cohen's easy-going performances on 11th and 12th September when the singer-songwriter hits Dublin (on sale now - from €88.50).
