Leonard Cohen
The famous Canadian singer/songwriter and poet Leonard Cohen, as expected, is set to soon head out on a tour this summer; his first tour in 15 years!

The 73-year-old artist, who was inducted last night (March 10) into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, will be backed on the road by Roscoe Beck (bass & vocals, music director) Neil Larsen (keyboard, accordion, brass instruments), Bob Metzger (guitar, steel guitar & vocals), Javier Mas (acoustic guitar, oud & string instruments), Christine Wu (violin, viola, cello & keyboard), Rafael Gayol (drums & percussion) and Dino Soldo (keyboard, saxophone, wind instruments & vocals).

Currently the mapped dates are a bit scarassed and mostly situated in Europe, but North American fans, especially Canadians, will have the please of seeing the old master in the flesh soon enough, as more dates are scheduled to be announced.
