    Leonard Cohen's first U.S. show in more than fifteen years has been scheduled for February 19 at New York's Beacon Theater. Tickets for the 2,800-seat affair go on sale this Friday. No word on any additional stateside stops yet, though.

    Cohen has reportedly been forced to tour due to the drastic drop in his retirement savings. The legendary singer has claimed that his former manager/lover, Kelley Lynch, scammed him out of more than $5 million. While a Los Angeles court awarded him a civil judgement of $9 million, Cohen hasn't been able to collect from Lynch as of yet.
