To accommodate overwhelming popular demand, AEG Live has announced the addition of a second Leonard Cohen show at New York's Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, May 17. This newly added second date follows the originally scheduled concert on Saturday, May 16, which attracted an incredible fan response when it was announced with an American Express early ticket on-sale last week. Audiences are clamoring for a chance to catch this intimate, superbly crafted concert as part of Cohen's 2009 North American Tour, featuring the singer/songwriter/poet, his acclaimed band, and a beloved catalog of music.

Tickets for both Radio City Music Hall shows-on Saturday, May 16 and Sunday, May 17-will go on sale beginning Monday, March 9th, 2009 at 10:00AM local time.... NPR is broadcasting select songs from Leonard Cohen's February 19th performance at New York's historic Beacon Theatre-his long-awaited first stateside performance in more than 15 years.

A "friends and family" presale begins Friday at 10 AM for the May 16th Radio City show (the password might be thisisnottherealone ). A Fan Club presale begins Saturday at 10 AM. Regular sale begins Monday at 10 AM which is when the May 17th show goes on sale, though at the moment it still isn't listed on Ticketmaster.

In related news, Ticketmaster can't get out of the news. To quote Reuters, "Ticketmaster settled with the state of New Jersey to resolve more than 2,000 complaints over how it had handled ticket sales for Bruce Springsteen concerts, and Canadians are now complaining about inflated prices to hear Leonard Cohen."

New shows have also been announced in Boston, Austin, Oakland, and Chicago. Videos from the Beacon Theatre show, and updated tour dates, below...

For anyone coming to NY for Saturday or Sunday, John Prine is playing the Beacon on Friday night before these shows.... it can Prine, one of the greatest American Songwriters and Cohen, one of the greatest Canadian Songwriters....

Wow. They're already advertising all of the shows. I was just on MarketWatch.com and saw an ad. Rather strange.

I believe password will be posted very shortly (at 10 am New York time) -- may even be embedded in the link.

Hmm, when I went on, the password was NOT case sensitve. However, I agree, there were no pit seats available and my Amex tickets (row D vs. row W) were infinitely better. I am still grateful for having the password and the opportunity to purchase tickets, so thanks Jarkko!

i didn't do as well with the amex presale (row NN center left) and was offered W center left today. i've checked back throughout the day and a few of the $129 tix came up, but i just stayed with what i had finances being what they are today (and it wouldn't take the lower case password, i tried again)
i wanted to treat myself for my 50th bday, but unless someone offers me a pit ticket at face value, i'll just be happy i get to hear
this beautiful soul sing to me at all!
definite thanks to Jarkko!!!! and everyone in this community.
