Musical and poetic legend Leonard Cohen landed in NYC for his first of two shows here last night (12/18), when he played Madison Square Garden. He played a 29-song set with songs from his entire career -- classics like "Suzanne," "So Long, Marianne," "Bird on the Wire," and "Famous Blue Raincoat," his hugely iconic "Hallelujah," and some tracks off of his year end list appearing 2012 LP, Old Ideas, in addition to many more.
Leonard will do it again on Thursday (12/20) at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Tickets for that show are still available.
