The famous Canadian songster Leonard Cohen finally confirmed his schedule of concerts, so his first concert in Prague should be for real. The date is 27th September in the HC Sparta Prague Arena, the songster announced on his webpages. This is a change to the originally planned venue of Prague Castle, the reason is probably high interest in tickets, sold at Ticketportal online. Prices vary from 1100 to 5000 czk.
Leonard Cohen goes on tour after fifteen years. Cohen’s earliest songs (many of which appeared on the 1967 album Songs of Leonard Cohen) were rooted in European folk music melodies and instrumentation. In the 1970s his music encompassed pop, cabaret and world music. Since the 1980s his high baritone voice he has typically evolved into lower registers (bass baritone and bass), with accompaniment from electronic synthesizers and female backing singers. His work often explores the themes of religion, isolation, sexuality, and complex interpersonal relationships.
