Leonard Cohen has announced a stand-alone, one-off show in September at The Hop Farm, Kent.

The legendary singer/songwriter will perform on 8 September, 2012 as part of his world tour. He will perform a massive three-hour set featuring classic tracks, rarities and new tunes from his No.1 album, 'Old Ideas'. The Hop Farm is the setting for The Hop Farm Festival - which takes place in June.

"To get the opportunity to bring Leonard Cohen to the UK for his only appearance this year is a fantastic and humbling achievement," says Hop Farm boss Vince Power. "He is one of the undisputed forefathers of modern folk music and has honed his craft for nearly half a century. We’re over the moon he’s decided to join us for what will be a truly memorable experience."

Tickets go on sale on Friday, 13 April, 2012. For more information visit Gigwise Gig Tickets.
