Leonard Cohen: Live in Dublin Released

Leonard Cohen: Live in DublinAcclaimed singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen’s 2012/13 Old Ideas World Tour featured what many critics called his best band ever. That band featured bass guitarist/upright bassist Roscoe Beck, who also served as the band’s musical director.

The sound the band made with Cohen as he supported his Old Ideas album was captured in film and audio recordings in a performance at Dublin’s O2 Arena on Sept. 12, 2013, and the show is being released as a CD/DVD or Blu-ray package called Leonard Cohen: Live in Dublin.

The recordings reveal a three-hour concert experience, featuring an 11-song first set, 10-song second set and eight-song encore.

Here’s a taste of what you’ll hear — check out this performance of “Everybody Knows”:
