Hi Evelyn

I just had an e-mail about tickets for the show at Zaphod Beeblebrox a few minutes ago. Tickets go on sale at noon local time via http://www.ticketmaster.ca and are also available at the venue - see details below:

"LEONARD COHEN FANS (Who Opted In For Information on Leonard or Similar Events)

Ottawa – August 26, 2011


ADAM COHEN

Thursday, October 6th – 8 p.m.

at Zaphod Beeblebrox


ADAM COHEN RETURNS WITH HIS NEW ALBUM

‘LIKE A MAN’ TO BE RELEASED OCTOBER, 2011


It’s taken him rather longer that he might have expected, but singer-songwriter Adam Cohen has grown up.

Although proud of his previous musical endeavours: 1998’s self-titled debut album, 2004’s Ex-Girlfriends (Low Millions) and 2004’s Mélancolista, Adam Cohen calls his forthcoming CD Like A Man, his “proudest artistic achievement yet”.

Adam is the son of the legendary Leonard Cohen… all his life, he had sought an artistic space beyond the reach of his father’s looming shadow. “I was never terribly pre-occupied with living up to my family name,” comments Adam. “It was not until I was sitting at the dinner table with my father to the left and my two year-old son to the right, did I realize that I really wanted to, and I was ready to.” The result of this epiphany is Adam’s new album, Like A Man, which will be released on October 4th (Rezolute / EMI Music in Canada, Cooking Vinyl for the rest of the world). The first single, What Other Guy, is being released digitally August 23rd. Immediately following the release of Like A Man, Adam will be playing select markets in Canada, and then embarking on a 29-date European tour.

Intimate and romantic yet shrewdly reflective, Adam’s songs on Like A Man evoke something of his father… just as in any child, you can discern the echo of the parent. But there is Adam’s own unique and distinct voice and perspective too — a plain-speaking style freighted with disarming candour.

“Like A Man is steeped in my recognizing that I am in the family business. Despite my efforts to carve out a different identity, I really belong to a long line of people who have embraced their father’s business. And to have my father pronounce that I have world-class love songs on my record (Like A Man and What Other Guy) is a deeply gratifying compliment,” says Adam.

I have just gone to the Massey Hall Toronto website to see if I could purchase tiks for the Oct. 1 date and Adam Cohen is not listed - someone named K'naan is. Does anyone have any info on this? Are the dates shown on page one here correct?

Thank you for the link Marie - worked beautifully. Now, do I want to see him in a larger venue or something more intimate? - such a dilemma....

Hi Mary,

I was trying to find a ticket for Massey Hall too and found the information here that explained the K'naan connection:

http://www.masseyhall.com/eventdetail?eventId=855

Why not come to Ottawa instead? :D

Just because Toronto is closer?????? Anyway, we are simply thinking about going to one of his shows at this point - nothing written in stone. And, thanks for that link. When I first saw who the headliner was, it meant nothing, then a little bell started going off in my head, I searched the name here and there it was
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=11098&hilit=K%27naa ... 80#p214704
THAT'S why it rang a bell - thank you twice!

Hi both Mary's
check this out too re K'naan...
http://www.canadainternational.gc.ca/lo ... spx?view=d

He sang at the grammy award presentation in LA in 2010 at the Canadian Consulate when Leonard recieved his award.
You can see Leonard in the photograph in that link.

Leslie 8)


Headlining the evening was K'naan, a Canadian-Somali poet, rapper and musician. A remixed version of K'naan's single "Wavin' Flag" has been chosen as the Coca-Cola anthem for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, to be held in South Africa this year. The crowd sang the lyrics with K’Naan “When I get older, I will be stronger, They’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag.”


Another highlight of the evening was tributes from the Prime Minister of Canada to music legends Leonard Cohen, Neil Young and the late Pierre Cossette who are all recipients of the Order of Canada.
