Leonard Cohen returning to U.S. tour circuit in fall


Hallelujah, indeed. Leonard Cohen, in all his sartorial splendor, will kick off the second and final leg of his North American tour in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., on Oct. 17. 

leonard1The 74-year-old Canadian singer/songwriter has scheduled 15 dates through Nov. 13 in San Jose, Calif. It was not immediately clear if there would be any additional stops.

Cohen is currently on tour in Europe, with dates on tap through Sept. 21 in Barcelona. He has been on the road since May last year, forced out of retirement after a former manager made off with his life savings.

The first North American leg, marking his first Stateside tour in 15 years, ran for two months through early June, and was one of the hottest tickets in town.
