Leonard Cohen Adds Second Radio City Music Hall Performance, 4/7
By popular demand, Leonard Cohen's acclaimed "Old Ideas World Tour" has just added a second Radio City Music Hall performance on Sunday, April 7th, following the previously announced date on Saturday, April 6th. These concerts come on the heels of two breathtaking engagements last month at New York's Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center, which culminated the tour's first North American leg. Promoted by AEG Live, the tour celebrates Cohen's highly acclaimed twelfth studio album, Old Ideas, which debuted at #1 across the globe, and is the highest charting album of his career.
Tickets for both Radio City Music Hall performances are on sale now and can be purchased online at www.ticketmaster.com, or charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000. Tickets are subject to applicable service charges and event time and date are subject to change. Please visit www.LeonardCohen.com for the most up to date concert and ticket on-sale information.
Night after night, Leonard Cohen and his band of expert musicians have earned five-star reviews and left audiences spellbound. MTV Hive recounted that "Cohen sprinted to the mic at the beginning of the evening, and skipped offstage at the end, and in between, delivered a reminder of everything that has made him the icon and legend that he is." Los Angeles Times reported that "Cohen's generosity was real-nearly 30 songs worth-and it confirmed his place as one of the most accomplished songwriters of the past four decades." Variety was enthralled by how "he captivated, charmed and conquered a sold-out audience..." and Oakland Tribune simply stated "All hail Leonard Cohen."
Cohen's current band features Sharon Robinson and the Webb Sisters (background vocals), Roscoe Beck (musical director & bass), Neil Larsen (keyboards, Hammond B3, accordion), Mitch Watkins (guitar), Javier Mas (bandurria, laud, archilaud, 12-string acoustic guitar), Rafael Gayol (drums, percussion), Alexandru Bublitchi (violin).
The "Old Ideas World Tour 2012" follows Cohen's triumphant 2008-2010 world tour - his first in 15 years.
