The Daily Telegraph "Moving and majestic..."

Post by FOXWOOD » Sun Jun 23, 2013 6:24 pm

Leonard Cohen, O2 Arena, review
Moving and majestic, a Leonard Cohen concert is the 'Sistine Chapel of live performance', says Bernadette McNulty.

"What keeps the thousands coming back, myself included, is the sensation that seeing Cohen live is like going to see a finished masterpiece by an Old Master.
His three-hour sets are the Sistine Chapel ceiling of live performance: their exquisite beauty renders you silent, sometimes tearful but always grateful to have been able to experience such radiance and majesty."

Thanks for the link, Foxwood. It's a well-considered review and one that doesn't resort to the usual clichés.
