Rock Hall Inductee Leonard Cohen Announces First Tour Since 1993

By |

Hours after his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Leonard Cohen announced his first tour in over fifteen years. The seventy-three year old songwriter — whose 1984 classic "Hallelujah" (as interpreted by Jeff Buckley) is currently the number one song on iTunes thanks to American Idol — has no American dates currently on the books. However, according to his Web site, Cohen may bring the tour Stateside towards the end of the year. His decision to tour probably has much to do with the fact that his former manager squandered his $5 million pension and left him with $150,000. The tour kicks off June 6th in Toronto.
