Leonard Cohen has postponed his forthcoming European tour for six months in order to recover from a back injury.

The singer, 75, is believed to be undergoing physiotherapy for the injury, which could take between four and six months. It is not yet known how he picked up the injury, though he has performed almost 200 concerts since he returned to touring in 2008.

Cohen‘s tour will now begin in the French city of Caen on September 15, 2010, according to his spokesperson.

In September, Cohen collapsed onstage in Spain, reportedly due to food poisoning.
