Leonard Cohen Announces Orpheum Date



Seventy-eight-year old songwriting icon Leonard Cohen announced today a second leg of his current North American tour, which will include a rare Memphis date. Cohen will play the Orpheum Theatre on Sunday, March 24th.

Cohen, with his deep, authoritative voice and literary lyrics, became one of rock's major singer-songwriters via such classic albums as his 1967 debut Songs of Leonard Cohen and the 1969 follow-up Songs From a Room. While never a huge commercial success, Cohen's stature among songwriters of his generation rivals the likes of Paul Simon and Randy Newman.

Cohen's never really gone away, but has experienced something of an artistic rebirth in recent years, with his highly regarded 2009 double album Live in London and last year's well-reviewed Old Ideas.

Tickets for the Orpheum concert go on sale Friday, January 18th, at 10 a.m. For additional information, see www.LeonardCohen.com, www.AEGLive.com, or the Orpheum's site.
