I searched but didn't see a thread about this. I saw there was a post in the Glastonbury thread but I think this is worthy of its own thread. Leonard Cohen back on the road at 73 - Yahoo! News
It doesn't sound like he's coming to the US though.
I wonder how hard it will be to get tickets? I was hoping to come to the UK this year anyway, I should arrange to be there while he's playing. Who wants to buy me a ticket?
You know if I don't make it over, you'll be able to find someone else to go with you!

NEW YORK (AFP) - Canadian folk legend Leonard Cohen is to kick off a world tour in June, making a return to the stage at the age of 73 with his first major tour in 15 years.
The tour kicks off in Toronto, the city where he started out as a recording artist, on June 6 before moving on to Europe with dates through August. Other performances on the world tour were to be announced at a later date.
Among the notable dates on the tour are a performance at Britain's Glastonbury Festival in June and at the Montreux Jazz Festival in July.
Singer-songwriter Cohen emerged in the 1960s but found only limited success with his first album "Songs Of Leonard Cohen" in 1967, which like his "Songs Of Love And Hate" in 1971 was better received in Europe than in the United States.
He released his most recent album, "Dear Heather," in 2004.
