This past February revered "Hallelujah" songwriter Leonard Cohen played his first U.S. concert in 15 years at New York's Beacon Theatre to rapturous response. Now, after an initial run of dates this past winter/spring -- including a gig at Coachella -- the singer has announced a second tour leg, set to kick off in Sunrise, FL, Oct. 17, Billboard reports.
The 15-date run will hit cities left out of Cohen's first tour, including Atlanta, Cleveland, Nashville, and Kansas City. He will also return to New York, this time performing at the 18,000-capacity Madison Square Garden, as well as cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia, before concluding in San Jose, CA, on November 13. Cohen, a prolific author and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, is currently touring Europe behind his latest release, the Live In London DVD.
Tickets for select concerts go on sale Aug. 3 via Ticketmaster.
