Leonard Cohen

Leonard Cohen was incredibly grateful to be in Brooklyn last night, and if he were a less-classy gentleman, he might have made one of those “at my age I’m lucky to be anywhere” jokes. But of course, the 78-year-old is one of most dapper, graceful performers alive, so he showed his gratitude by repeatedly thanking the crowd, his band and what seemed like most of his crew, from sound engineer to rigger.

His trademark fedora almost permanently pulled down to his eyes, Cohen delivered an unforgettable evening at the Barclays Center, performing 29 songs over three hours without breaking stride. He skipped onstage at the beginning of both sets and both encores, dropped down to his knees almost as many times as he said “thank you,” and made more than a few references to ladies-man persona. -[Spinner]

Canadian music legend Leonard Cohen wrapped up his 2012 tour at the Barclays’ center on Thursday night (12/20). Like at MSG a couple days prior, Leonard’s set was nearly three hours and 30 songs long, including two encores.
