Leonard Cohen announces new O2 Arena date

Canadian singer played Wembley Arena twice in 2012

Leonard Cohen announces new O2 Arena date
Leonard Cohen is to return to the UK in 2013 with a one-off show at London’s The O2 Arena on Friday June 21..

The singer-songwriter, who released his 12th studio album 'Old Ideas' in January, performed two shows at London's Wembley Arena in September, though they had originally been scheduled for Hop Farm in Kent, site of the annual Hop Farm Festival.

Leonard Cohen released 'Old Ideas' in January of this year. It followed 2004's 'Dear Heather', and is his 12th studio album since 1967. 'Old Ideas' was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize – the Canadian equivalent of the Mercury Music Prize.

2012 proved to be an eventful one for the 78 year-old performer. In January, he was interviewed by Jarvis Cocker in London, and told the Pulp singer that his ever-deepening voice was the result of "what happens when you give up cigarettes, contrary to public opinion."

In April, he appeared at LA County Superior Court at the trial of his ex-business partner Kelley Lynch, who was accused of making harassing phone calls and violating restraining orders. Cohen then spent the summer touring Europe and beyond.

Leonard Cohen will play:

The O2 Arena, London (June 21)


Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday December 14.
