Ticket Giveaway: Leonard Cohen @ HP Pavillion
leonard-cohen2.jpg
Legendary singer-songwriter, poet and novelist Leonard Cohen will be performing at HP Pavillion on November 13. The show comes less than a year after performing his first American concert in fifteen years. Judging by the superb Live in London, recorded at London’s O2 Arena in July 2008 and released in March 2009, Cohen hasn’t lost his edge.

With a career spanning four decades, Cohen is one of the most celebrated song writers of all time. He is generally regarded as second to only Dylan among musicians from the ’60s who are still active. His songs have been covered by hundreds of musicians from all genres, including R.E.M., The Pixies, Willie Nelson, Nick Cave, Elton John and U2.

24 years after it’s release, three versions of Cohen’s “Hallelujah” charted simultaneously in England in December 2008 following performances in both American Idol and Britain’s X Factor (Jeff Buckley’s version at #1, X Factor winner Alexandra Burke at #2 and Cohen’s original at #36).

We’re very excited to announce that we have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky reader. To enter, leave us your favorite Cohen lyric in the comments (include your email so we can contact you). A winner will be picked at random on November 2.

For the rest of you, tickets are available through Ticketmaster.
MP3s:
Leonard Cohen - “Suzanne”
Leonard Cohen - “Hallelujah” [Live]
Jeff Buckley - “Hallelujah”
