The legendary singer-songwriter will now play in London on September 8 and 9
Leonard Cohen‘s two UK shows have moved from the Hop Farm in Kent to Wembley Arena.
Due to “unforeseen circumstances”, the shows – which will still happen on September 8 and 9 – will now take place at the indoor North London venue, instead of the outdoor Hop Farm, which is the site of the yearly Hop Farm Festival.
Ticketholders for the Hop Farm concerts should contact their point of sale for a refund or new ticket issue. More tickets are also now on sale for the two shows. Previously, the September 8 show was sold out.
The singer, who released his 12th studio album ‘Old Ideas’ in January, will play a three-hour set. The two dates will be Cohen’s only UK shows of his 2012 world tour.
‘Old Ideas’ has been nominated for the Polaris Music Prize – the Canadian equivalent of the Mercury Music Prize.
