Leonard Cohen Touring UK and Ireland This Year
Date Posted: 03/07/13
One of the most famed singer songwriters of all time, Leonard Cohen, is due to tour the UK and Ireland later in 2013.
The man famed for penning and performing tracks like the much-covered 'Hallelujah' is going to be visiting a variety of venues in this part of the world in August and September.
If you're planning to see Cohen in concert then now might be a good time to look into short breaks, if you need somewhere to stay after you go to one of his gigs.
Cohen, whose famous songs include 'I'm Your Man' and 'Closing Time', is set to visit Bournemouth on August 26th, then hit Brighton, Manchester, Cardiff, Leeds, Birmingham and Dublin, before concluding his UK and Ireland tour on September 15th, with a gig at London's O2, according to listings on his website.
The singer, who is now in his late 70s, is hugely respected as a songwriter and musician.
His 'Hallelujah' has been sung by the likes of X Factor winner Alexandra Burke and singer songwriter Rufus Wainwright over the years.
