Leonard Cohen
Madison Square Garden , Midtown West Tuesday December 18 2012 20:00
Since returning to the road in 2008, Leonard Cohen has been on a quiet tear, regaling audiences worldwide with disarmingly gracious, greatest-hits-packed gigs. Expect the bard of Montreal to be in a less nostalgic mood this year, when he hits town in support of 2012's Old Ideas, a grizzled yet warm record that finds Cohen outing himself as a "lazy bastard living in a suit"—an appropriately unromantic self-portrayal from our foremost purveyor of sinners' gospel.
