Following the release of Leonard Cohen’s highly acclaimed twelfth studio album ‘Old Ideas,’ the legendary singer / songwriter / poet will once again return to the stage with a World Tour beginning in Belgium this August 2012 with a visit to Dublin for four nights at The Royal Hospital in Kilmainham.
In his sixth decade of producing critically acclaimed music, Leonard Cohen remains at the top of his game and is arguably one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time. Reaching unprecedented heights, ‘Old Ideas’ debuted at #1 across the globe and is the highest charting album of Cohen’s career. Worldwide praise has been mounting for this highly anticipated collection of new material with The Telegraph declaring it as a “work of genius.”
Citing W.B Yeats, Irving Layton and Walt Whitman as literary influences, Leonard Cohen first shot to the forefront of the music industry in the 60’s and has remained an inspirational talent and contributor to the industry since he first emerged. Leonard Cohen‘s lyrics of lust, love, religion, death and seclusion have enlightened fans and musicians worldwide. Boasting an estimated 1,330 covers of his original songs, Leonard Cohen’s work has enamoured the likes of U2, REM, Nick Cave and the late Johnny Cash, among many others.
His albums Songs of Leonard Cohen (1967), The Future (1993) and Ten New Songs (2001) are rightly considered classics along with the beautiful singles ‘Hallelujah’ and ‘Suzanne’. Leonard Cohen‘s literary genius and unique musical talent are as legendary as the man himself.
Leonard Cohen earned rave reviews throughout his triumphant 2008 – 2010 World Tour, with The Observer praising the show as “An evening of pure gold,” while The Daily Telegraph plainly stated “immaculate, beautiful, exquisite.” The Independent reported that “to hear him sing is still an experience to truly make young women and romantics shiver and sweat” and Toronto Sun declared Leonard Cohen “Charming, funny, poignant, smart, sharp, sexy… he is still a ladykiller.” Daily Express hailed that “Leonard Cohen is special and this concert – all two-and-a-half-hours of it – was unforgettable” and Irish Independent recounted that “What I witnessed was soul inspiring on every level, I have never been so moved by a performance, everything about the night was magical.” The Times suggested “On this kind of grand autumnal form, he should tour every year.”
