Leonard Cohen to Play Four US Shows in December

Leonard Cohen will play four US shows in December. The revered Canadian singer/songwriter came out of a 15-year semi-retirement in May 2008 to perform at large arenas around the world and will end his tour with a two-night stand in Las Vegas on December 10 and 11. The final four shows will kick off at Honolulu's Blaisdell Concert Hall on December 4. Cohen will play the Rose Quarter Theater of the Clouds in Portland, Oregon on December 8, and then the two aforementioned final shows will take place at Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Cohen, who turns 76 later this month, plans to return to the studio next year to record his first album of new material since 2004's Dear Heather so he will stay off the road for quite some time while he works on new music; he is known to work slow and can take years (!!!) to write a single song.
The final four US shows are Cohen's first US concerts since last November.
Will you travel to any of these four destinations/locations to see the rare Leonard Cohen performance? Hallelujah! Wink-wink, nudge-nudge.
