Singer will play a second Day At Hop Farm show later this year
Leonard Cohen has announced a second UK outdoor show for later this year.
The singer, who released his 12th studio album ‘Old Ideas’ in January, was already confirmed to headline a new event put on by the promoters of Hop Farm Festival, which is named A Day At Hop Farm on September 8, and, will now headline a second day on September 9.
The shows take place at Hop Farm Country Park in Kent, the same site as Hop Farm Festival, and will have a capacity of around 10,000.
Cohen will play a three-hour set and will also have a full supporting bill playing before him, which will be confirmed in the coming weeks. They will be Cohen’s only UK shows of his 2012 world tour.
Hop Farm Festival itself takes place between June 29 and July 1 this year.
The event will be headlined by Bob Dylan, Suede and Peter Gabriel, with Primal Scream, Damien Rice, My Morning Jacket, Maximo Park, Patti Smith And Her Band, The Stranglers, Slow Club, Frightened Rabbit and Tom Vek also booked to play.
