“This is a new song about everything” Leonard Cohen Performs Night Comes On – Copenhagen 1985

The Leonard Cohen 1985 Copenhagen Concert

Night Comes On is one of the six songs from the February 9, 1985 concert in Copenhagen, Denmark that were broadcast on Danish TV.1 Backing Cohen are Anjani Thomas (vocals and Keyboards), John Crowder (bass), Ron Getman (vocals, guitar), & Mitch Watkins (guitar), Richard Crooks (drums).2

While the visual elements of this video are suboptimal, the audio is quite good. A bit of banter precedes the performance of the song.
