Leonard Cohen Plans New North American Tour Leg
The new leg is set to kick off at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, CA on March 2. The new dates will include several cities where he has performed on the first leg as well as stops in cities where he will be performing for the first time including New Orleans, Memphis and Louisville.
antiMusic's Anthony Kuzminski wrote of the Rosemont, IL stop on the first leg of the tour back in November, " Cohen is more of a prophet than a performer as he effortlessly guides his audience through the shifting neighborhoods of their existence. Watching Cohen on the concert stage is largely unparalleled because he doesn't rely on any artifice other than the power of his songs and the sincerity with which they are delivered. On his recent stop through Chicago, at Rosemont's Akoo Theatre, Cohen performed thirty songs over the course of 190-minutes with a nine piece band who, along with Cohen's cavernous yet soothing voice, made you feel like everything you ever needed to know about life was right on that stage."
