Leonard Cohen has announced details of a UK arena tour.

The Canadian singer-songwriter, who released his 12th studio album 'Old Ideas' in January 2012, will play seven dates in August and September – calling in at Bournemouth, Brighton, Manchester, Cardiff, Leeds and Birmingham before a huge date at London's O2 Arena.

Leonard Cohen will play:

Bournemouth BIC (August 26)
Brighton Centre (28)
Manchester Arena (31)
Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (September 3)
Leeds Arena (5)
Birmingham LG Arena (8)
London The O2 (14)


Last year, U2's Bono called Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' the "most perfect song in the world". The frontman made the claim in a book by Alan Light, called The Holy or the Broken: Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley, and the Unlikely Ascent of 'Hallelujah'. Other artists making their love of the track known in the book include Regina Spektor, who said: "This song is pretty much indestructible."

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday (May 31). To check the availability of Leonard Cohen tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0844 858 6765 .
