Leonard Cohen Queues Up Last Four US Dates of Two Year Tour
Canadian folk-pop legend Leonard Cohen will finally wrap up his world tour which has been going on for more than two years now, this year in Sin City.
According to AEG Live, promoter of the lengthy Cohen tour, the 76-year old musician will go back to the studio after his two-night engagement the Caesars Palace’s Colosseum in Las Vegas on December 10 and 11, to gather new material for a new studio set and his follow-up to “Dear Heather”, which came out in 2004. But expect this new set to come out years from now as Cohen is known to invest so much time – and we mean “so much” – in writing a single track, more so an entire album.
The singer/songwriter is currently in Europe making up for lost time with a string of shows after a back injury sidelined him in the early part of the year. His next stop will be New Zealand, Australia and Cambodia for the next two months, and by December, he is slated to wrap up his world tour with a string of US shows – Hawaii on December 4, Portland, OR on December 8 and finishing up with two nights in Las Vegas.
AEG Live announced that the tickets for Cohen’s last four shows for this year will be available to the public starting on September 24, Friday.
