Leonard Cohen reschedules tour dates

Leonard Cohen has rescheduled two dates on his forthcoming UK arena tour for religious reasons.

Cohen, who will play live in the UK this August and September, has rearranged dates in Leeds and London after realising that they were scheduled on days of solemn religious observance, including the Jewish day of atonement, Yom Kippur.

The Leeds date was originally due to take place on September 5 and will now happen on September 7.

A date at London's 02 Arena on September 14 will now take place a day later.

All tickets remain valid for the rescheduled dates.

Leonard Cohen will now play:

Bournemouth BIC (August 26)
Brighton Centre (28)
Manchester Arena (31)
Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (September 3)
Leeds Arena (7)
Birmingham LG Arena (8)
London The O2 (15)
