Leonard Cohen's Old Ideas World Tour

Leonard Cohen's Old Ideas World Tour

In response to overwhelming fan demand, Cohen’s acclaimed Old Ideas World Tour has just added a second North American leg. After enchanting audiences worldwide, the legendary singer/songwriter/poet culminated the first series of North American dates with breathtaking engagements at New York’s Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center – and fans were left wanting more. The new round of dates began in Oakland, Calif., on March 2. 

Night after night, Cohen and his band of expert musicians have earned five-star reviews and left audiences spellbound. The 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 impressed by how “he captivated, charmed and conquered a sold-out audience, hardly seeming to break a sweat in the process.” Rolling Stone remarked that Cohen “left no doubt that he's as vital — both physically and as a cultural asset — as he's ever been,” and Oakland Tribune simply stated “All hail Leonard Cohen.” Read more under the About the Show tab.
