LEONARD COHEN TO PERFORM FIRST EVER LOUISVILLE SHOW

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on January 16, 2013

“OLD IDEAS WORLD TOUR” ARRIVES AT

THE LOUISVILLE PALACE ON SATURDAY, MARCH 30

* * *

SOLD-OUT PERFORMANCES AND RAVE REVIEWS

LEAD TO SECOND NORTH AMERICAN LEG

* * *

Tickets On Sale This Friday, January 18th at 10 AM

 

Louisville, KY – January 14, 2013 – After enchanting audiences worldwide, Leonard Cohen’s acclaimed “Old Ideas World Tour” has just added a second North American leg by popular demand, including a show at The Louisville Palace on Saturday, March 30. The newly added date will mark the legendary singer/songwriter/poet’s first ever Louisville performance. Promoted by AEG Live, the tour celebrates Cohen’s highly acclaimed twelfth studio album, Old Ideas, which debuted at #1 across the globe, and is the highest charting album of his career.

 

Tickets for the Louisville date will go on sale Friday, January 18th at 10 a.m., and can be purchased at the Palace Theatre Box Office, online at www.ticketmaster.com, or charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000.  Tickets are subject to applicable service charges and event time and date are subject to change. Please visit www.LeonardCohen.com for the most up to date concert and ticket on-sale information.

 

Night after night, Leonard Cohen and his band of expert musicians have earned five-star reviews and left audiences spellbound. MTV Hive recounted that “Cohen sprinted to the mic at the beginning of the evening, and skipped offstage at the end, and in between, delivered a reminder of everything that has made him the icon and legend that he is.” MSN gave a glowing assessment that “There are great ones, and then there are the ones where it seems the whole outside world has disappeared and nothing exists but what’s happening between artist and audience. This was one of those, full of goose-bump moments.” 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 enthralled by how “he captivated, charmed and conquered a sold-out audience, hardly seeming to break a sweat in the process,” and Fort Worth Star-Telegram was equally captivated: “Seeing someone of Cohen’s stature continue to draw so much evident joy from sharing his art with an adoring audience restores a person’s faith in music.” 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.”

Cohen’s current band features Sharon Robinson and the Webb Sisters (background vocals), Roscoe Beck (musical director & bass), Neil Larsen (keyboards, Hammond B3, accordion), Mitch Watkins (guitar), Javier Mas (bandurria, laud, archilaud, 12-string acoustic guitar), Rafael Gayol (drums, percussion), Alexandru Bublitchi (violin).

The “Old Ideas World Tour 2012” follows Cohen’s triumphant 2008-2010 world tour – his first in 15 years.
