Hot off his first U.S. concert in nearly 15 years, a performance at Madison Square Garden in which the legendary musician dazzled concert goers with a guest-heavy set spanning over three hours, Leonard Cohen has announced plans to get the rest of the country on the fun. Beginning in early April, the Canadian native will embark on a two-month North American tour, highlighted by stops in New York, Boston Chicago, and Los Angeles, along with an appearance at this year’s Coachella Music Festival.

As previously reported, the tour will be in supported of Cohen’s upcoming live album, Live in London, due for release on March 31st. He will be joined Roscoe Beck (bass, vocals), Neil Larsen (keyboards & Hammond B3 accordion), Bob Metzger (electric, acoustic & pedal steel guitar), Javier Mas (bandurria, laud, archilaud, 12 string acoustic guitar), Rafael Gayol (drums, percussion), Dino Soldo (sax, clarinet dobro – keys) on stage.
