Leonard Cohen Announces Birmingham Date On 8th September 2013

With his London show at The O2 in June sold out, Leonard Cohen has announced he will return to British shores for a full UK arena tour stopping off at Birmingham's LG Arena on 8 September 2013.  
 
Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 31 May through www.theticketfactory.com or 0844 338 8000.  Prices from £27.75 - £83.25 (including admin fee) (+ £2.50 fulfillment fee).
 
With a career spanning six decades and sell out shows around the world, the writer, poet, troubadour and hugely influential artist continues to prove that the hunger to see him is undiminished.  Since returning to the stage in 2008 after a 15-year hiatus, Cohen has lost nothing in his years off the road and his shows have quickly been recognised as musical history.

About Leonard Cohen:

A celebrated and much lauded singer/songwriter he first emerged as a major and influential talent in the early 60's.  Albums like Songs Of Leonard Cohen (1967), Songs Of Love And Hate (1970) and I'm Your Man (1990), right up to 1992's The Future, 2001's Ten New Songs and 2004's Dear Heather are rightly considered classics.  Uniquely for a revered musician, Cohen's literary plaudits rival those for his music.
 
His songs have been famously covered by the great and the good, each version a fascinating attempt to move closer to Cohen's enigmatic muse.  From Judy Collins' "Suzanne" to Jeff Buckley's seminal rendition of "Hallelujah," Cohen's songs have travelled as far and wide as their author. U2, REM, Sting, Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright and the late Johnny Cash are among other famous devotees.  It is estimated that his songbook has been covered over 1,330 times by other recording artists.
