Leonard Cohen has announced a 21-day tour of North America to support Old Ideas, his 11th studio album that was released in January. Speaking to Rolling Stone earlier this year about going back out on tour, Cohen said, "I have two minds. I don't like to do a small tour, so whether I'm going to sign up for for another couple of years...is that really where I want to be? Maybe it is…touring is like taking the first step on a walk to China. It's a serious commitment, so there are a lot of factors to be examined."
