Leonard Cohen Announces 2009 North American Tour Dates :: w/ Austin dates



Earlier this year, there was a rumor that Leonard Cohen was starting his tour here in Austin. Well, the rumor is true.  After playing a three-hour, six-encore set (setlist here) in front of a sold-out crowd at New York's famed Beacon Theatre last night (his first show on American soil in fifteen years), his North American tour has just been announced today. Tickets will sell out very, very quickly!

The 74-year-old Cohen will be making his way to Austin to play the Long Center on April 2nd, with tickets going on sale next Friday, February 27th at 10 am via thelongcenter.org. If you prefer, you can also purchase them at the Long Center box office or charge-by-phone, at (512) 474-LONG.

Update:  These might be the most expensive tickets I've ever seen! The tickets for the Austin show range from $85.50 to $549. Buy them here.

(RE) Update: This show is SOLD OUT! Damn that was quick. Since the first show sold out in just about a half and hour, the Long Center has added a second show on April 1st. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 6 at 10am.

The rest of his tour dates are down below.
