Music legend Leonard Cohen has announced European dates for his forthcoming world tour. More dates are to be announced soon.
The 77-year-old singer will embark on a huge world tour later this year, beginning in Belgium in August. Tour dates in Dublin have been announced.
The singer previously spoke to music magazine Rolling Stone about his apprehensions over embarking on such a big tour, saying: "A tour is being booked," he said. "I haven't signed up for it yet. I have two minds [about touring.] I don't like to do a small tour, so whether I'm going to sign up for another couple of years . . . is that really where I want to be? Touring is like taking the first step on a walk to China."
Cohen begins his 'walk to China' at the end of the summer. Stay tuned to Gigwise for more information on more UK dates.
