This. Show. Was. Absolutely. Fucking. Phenomenal.

This is a man that loves New York, and loves Radio City. The show started at 8:00 and ended at 11:25, with a 12-minute intermission. 3 plus hours, 3 encores, and major MAJOR appreciation and gratitude to Leonard for putting on his best show yet in New York. [Anon 4:17AM]

The comment above refers to the first of two shows Leonard Cohen played at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall this weekend (Saturday, May 16th and Sunday, May 17th). He played a nearly idential set both nights — set lists, and videos from the shows, below.

The shows came three months after Leonard’s show at the Beacon Theater which marked the 74 year old’s triumphant return to touring the United States.

“The RCH show was superior to the Beacon as the band played as a much tighter unit. Both were extremely great but I prefer the grand stage at RCHMH to the Beacon anyhow.

Best $70 I’ve spent in a long long time. Seriously one of the best concert experiences in the last 10 years for me.” [smack]

In April, LC was one of the headliners at the Coachella Festival in Indio, CA. Upcoming dates included Canada, Boston and Denver soon. Then he plays Europe and parts of Asia this summer. All scheduled dates, along with more Radio City stuff, below…
