Oops, Make That –
The Leonard Cohen Tour WAS Coming To Hawaii
In anticipation of the first ever Leonard Cohen performance in Hawaii, scheduled for December 4, 2010, Cohencentric developed an introductory video that organically melds images from the contemporary Leonard Cohen World Tour with the ancient, traditional music we all instinctively associate with the Hawaiian Islands. (We also created the image of a lei-wearing Leonard Cohen displayed atop this post.)
Update: A few hours after this video was posted, the Hawaii concert was canceled. The following announcement was found at LeonardCohenForum:
Regrettably, AEG Live has announced the cancellation of Leonard Cohen’s previously scheduled December 4th performance in Honolulu, Hawaii due to prohibitive and insurmountable logistical issues. However, newly added dates have been scheduled in Vancouver, BC and Oakland, CA to round out the artist’s final dates of his current world tour.
Ah, no one tells me nothing – until it’s too late.
On the other hand, this video is now your best bet for a souvenir of the phantom Honolulu show.
