“When Leonard Cohen takes to the stage, it’s no less than a cultural event of Biblical dimensions” Irish Times
“What I witnessed was soul inspiring on every level, I have never been so moved by a performance, Everything about the night was magical” Hot Press
A Leonard Cohen show in Ireland has become something of legend. Since his initial comeback shows in 2008 at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham up to the more recent shows there last year, his performances have continued to be received with nothing short of reverence and awe who attend. He has continuously sold out venues in record time, garnering more and more 5 star reviews and accolades each time including winning ‘Best International Live Performance’ two years in a row at the Irish Meteor Awards in 2009 and 2010.
And not for no reason. Leonard Cohen is arguably the greatest singer songwriter of our time and a magnetically charismatic live performer. A major and influential talent in the early 60's he produced albums such as Songs Of Leonard Cohen (1967), Songs Of Love And Hate (1970) and I’m Your Man (1990), right up to 1992’s The Future, 2001’s Ten New Songs and 2004’s Dear Heather …all are rightly considered classics today. His songs have been famously covered by the great and the good; from Judy Collins’ “Suzanne” to Jeff Buckley’s seminal rendition of “Hallelujah,” Cohen’s songs have traveled as far and wide as their author. U2, REM, Sting, Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright and the late Johnny Cash are among other famous devotees.
In his fifth decade of producing critically acclaimed music Leonard Cohen remains at the top of his game with the release of his twelfth studio album ‘Old Ideas’ last year for which he received worldwide praise for the collection of new material with The Telegraph declaring it a “work of genius.”
Cohen is beyond comparison, a true original, providing some of music and literature’s most illuminating writing on love, sex, death and religion. His live performance is hypnotic, enthralling and captivating…and yet it is something even more than that. Something ineffable yet palpable. As anyone who has seen him over the last number of years will testify to.
“What unfolds over two-and-a-half hours is likely to become the stuff of Irish concert lore. Quite simply, it doesn't get much better than this” Irish Independent
