Leonard Cohen announces North American tour

Announcement comes the day after his first US show in 15 years

Leonard Cohen performed his first US show in 15 years at New York’s Beacon Theatre last night, and today it was announced that he will head out across the continent on an extensive summer tour.

The singer songwriter has not released a new album since 2004’s ‘Dear Heather’, and recently resumed live shows to earn money after his business manager and lover Kelley Lynch misappropriated more than $5 million of his money, leaving him with just $150,000.

A court awarded him a $9 million in civil judgment, but he has not been able to get the money from Lynch.
