New Leonard Cohen Date Confirmed
Leonard Cohen will play a fourth Dublin gig this autumn.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 20 May 2012
Leonard Cohen has confirmed a fourth Dublin date for September. With three shows already sold out, speculation had been mounting that an additional date might be added. Now promoters POD and AEG Live have confirmed that an extra performance will take place at the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham on Saturday, September 15th. The gig will take place less than a week before Cohen's 78th birthday, which is on September 21, 2012.
Tickets for the three Leonard Cohen concerts already announced for the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, on 11th, 12th and 14th September 2012, are sold out. Cohen has proven one of the most enduring of the great 1960s legends and is particularly revered in Ireland, having sold out two shows at the Royal Hospital in 2008, before returning to the O2 and the Odyssey the following year and in 2010 for hugely successful shows in Lissadell House in Sligo.
His current album Old Ideas has been widely acclaimed and went to No.1 in the charts in Holland, Belgium, Poland, Norway, Spain and Finland among other territories. The album peaked at No.2 in the UK and No.3 in the US. It has been 16 weeks in the Irish charts.
Tickets priced from €79.50 will be available from 9am Monday 28th May 2012. Gates open on the day at 4pm.
