Leonard Cohen Returning To NZ

Wednesday 26th May, 2010 2:42PM

Florence & The Machine, Passion Pit, Broken Social Scene; some people just can't seem to keep away from little old New Zealand. And now it's legendary recording artist Leonard Cohen who will be returning to our shores to play Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in October and November, barely a year since his last visit.

It's difficult to add to the ubiquitous hyperbole that follows Cohen around, so all there is left to say is that if you missed out the first time, or you just can't get enough of the man, be sure to get along to one of the shows.

PRESS RELEASE

Early last year audiences across Australia and New Zealand were privileged to experience the incomparable live talents of Leonard Cohen. Rapturous reviews followed, with many critics calling the shows the best they have ever seen. The tour went on to win the Helpmann Award for the Best International Concert in 2009. Those lucky enough to be in attendance at the concerts described them in glowing and effusive terms, earning the envy of those who had missed out on what many speculated would be the last opportunity to see Leonard Cohen on our shores.

Accordingly it is with no small amount of pleasure that The Frontier Touring Company announce that Leonard Cohen has agreed to return - with his amazing nine piece band and backing singers - to Australia and New Zealand for an encore series of concerts in October and November 2010.

Those unfortunate enough to have missed out on Leonard’s last tour will now have the opportunity to experience firsthand the phenomenal live performance that had reviewers in raptures.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to see Leonard Cohen live in concert this October/November 2010. Tickets on sale from Thursday 3 June.

Pre-sale tickets available via frontiertouring.com from noon AEST Monday 31 May.
