Product Description:

Awash in bluish light and sporting a fedora, Leonard Cohen seduces London's O2 arena so fully and deftly that it's impossible to believe the show marks his emergence from a 15-year touring hiatus. While this 2008 concert finds Cohen playing decades of his own qualified classics, this is no mere trip to the museum: legendary songs such as "Suzanne" and "Hallelujah" sear and smolder with whole new realms of depth and maturity.

Product Description:

For a man who only “aspired to be a minor poet” early in his career, Leonard Cohen evolved as one of the most important and influential songwriters of our time - a figure whose body of work achieves greater depths of mystery and meaning as time goes on. His songs have set a virtually unmatched standard in their seriousness and range. Sex, spirituality, religion, power - he has relentlessly examined the largest issues in vexing questions he raises. But those questions, and the journey he has traveled in seeking to address them, are the ever-shifting substance of his work, as well as the
reasons why his songs never lose their overwhelming emotional force. Documentaries, awards, tribute albums and the ongoing march of artists eager to record his songs all acknowledge the peerless contribution Cohen has made to what one of his titles aptly calls “The Tower of Song.” As his old friend Lou Reed succinctly concluded during Cohen's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction: “We're so lucky to be alive at the same time Leonard Cohen is.”
This collection presents the historic performance of 25 classics drawn from
Leonard Cohen's 40-year repertory, including such favorites as “Hallelujah,” “Everybody Knows” and “Suzanne.” Live In London was recorded live on July 17, 2008 at London's 02 Arena, and fully captures and recreates the songwriting legend's extraordinary return to the stage on his first tour in 15 years.
