Leonard Cohen performed a headlining show at London’s O2 arena last night (July 17), playing a three hour set which included classics like “Sisters Of Mercy, “Suzanne” and “Bird On The Wire”.
Cohen’s wit was much in evidence throughout, much of it at his own expense. In one anecdote, the 73 year old mentioned having a drink with “a teacher”, who is now 102 years old. “As we chinked glasses,” said Cohen, “He said ‘Excuse me for not dying…'”
The three hour set was received with a standing ovation. “Thank you friends,” Cohen said, “for your kind attention.”
