Leonard Cohen Returns for More U.S. Tour Dates

Ever since legendary Canadian bard Leonard Cohen emerged from retirement last year for his first performances in 15 years, we've been eager to point out every opportunity to see the iconic songwriter/poet/novelist. (So eager, in fact, that we sometimes use the words "legendary" and "iconic" to describe him in the same sentence.) Unfortunately for stateside folks, following his big February show at New York City's Beacon Theater and a brief American tour, Cohen headed back overseas where he'll continue playing through the summer months. After he closes up his European affair in Barcelona, though, he'll return for another North American leg this fall.
