Night after night, Leonard Cohen and his band of expert musicians have earned five-star reviews and left audiences spellbound. Vancouver Sun observed that “Close to three hours can seem like an eternity in some cases, but with Cohen the evening could've gone on forever, as comfortable as it was to be wrapped in his rapturous embrace.” National Post witnessed that “Standing ovations abounded” and “Cohen was equally gracious,” while The Toronto Star echoed that sentiment: “Cohen was warm, funny, gracious.
Cohen’s current band features Sharon Robinson and the Webb Sisters (background vocals), Roscoe Beck (musical director & bass), Neil Larsen (keyboards & Hammond B3 accordion), Mitch Watkins (guitar), Javier Mas (bandurria, laud, archilaud, 12-string acoustic guitar), Rafael Gayol (drums, percussion), Alexandru Bublitchi (violin).
The “Old Ideas World Tour 2012” follows Cohen’s triumphant 2008-2010 world tour – his first in 15 years -- which was met with overwhelming praise.
