Leonard Cohen to tour Europe in 2008?

Leonard Cohen to tour Europe in 2008?

Leonard Cohen is strongly rumoured to be touring Europe in the summer.

A posting on Leonardcohenforum.com from one of the moderators, jarkko, reads: “The following advance notice is posted with Leonard's permission. Leonard Cohen will be touring with his band in Canada and US in May and in Europe in the summer. More details will be announced in February.”

If the statement is true, then it will be the first time Cohen has toured in Europe for fifteen years.

Cohen’s financial situation could be behind the decision to tour – Cohen has accused his business manager Kelley Lynch of defrauding him of $5million.

However, there has as yet been no word on the matter from Cohen or his associates.
