Here is the official press release:
LEONARD COHEN RETURNS TO AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND

Early last year audiences across Australia and New Zealand were privileged to experience the incomparable live talents of Leonard Cohen. Rapturous reviews followed, with many critics calling the shows the best they have ever seen. The tour went on to win the Helpmann Award for the Best International Concert in 2009. Those lucky enough to be in attendance at the concerts described them in glowing and effusive terms, earning the envy of those who had missed out on what many speculated would be the last opportunity to see Leonard Cohen on our shores.

Accordingly it is with no small amount of pleasure that The Frontier Touring Company announce that Leonard Cohen has agreed to return - with his amazing nine piece band and backing singers - to Australia and New Zealand for an encore series of concerts in October and November 2010.

Those unfortunate enough to have missed out on Leonard’s last tour will now have the opportunity to experience firsthand the phenomenal live performance that had reviewers in raptures.

“Wild applause, standing ovations and tears of joy greeted his songs.” Sunday Herald Sun, Melbourne

“the best show I have ever seen.” Dominion Post, Wellington

“one of those concerts where words can’t do it justice. But if you want a one-word review, try magical.” Courier Mail, Brisbane

“three hours of musical heaven.” Time Off, Brisbane

“For the diehards, it was a religious experience. For those who discovered Leonard Cohen second-hand through his famous fans…it was an eye-opener.” Herald Sun, Melbourne

“Floating on air after night of pure magic” Sydney Morning Herald

“a simply sublime experience.” Gold Coast Bulletin

“the most moving and memorable performance I have ever seen.” Drum Media, Perth

“a show to die for” Sunday Mail, Adelaide

“an artist of impeccable class.” The Australian

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to see Leonard Cohen live in concert this October/November 2010. Tickets on sale from Thursday 3 June.

Pre-sale tickets available via frontiertouring.com from noon AEST Monday 31 May.

Hi Jarkko
How do you become a fan club member. I have tried in vain a few times over the last few days to sign up to the mail list etc, and it keeps telling me that there are errors on the sony server. Is this where I need to go to become a fan and get the access to presale. I went to LC's concert in Auckland, New Zealand last year and it was AMAZING!
Any help would be appreciated!

What amazing news. Just yesterday I was sitting in a cab, stuck in traffic, outside Vector Arena here in Auckland and smiling as I remembered that wonderful night in January last year. I am registered with Frontier Toring Company but how will I know if Forum members get a pre-pre-sale opportunity to buy tickets?

I am sure we will hear the details today or tomorrow.
IF there is a Fan Club member presale, people registered to this Forum will qualify (and nobody else)

Still no info from AEG (nor Frontier) about the presale, so I can't say more before I get the details!

Oh happy day, we are jolly lucky again in Australia to have Leonard come down again. At least it should be cooler for him and his band. I can't wait to go again, it was the best concert, (next to Abba when I was much younger that is!)

And a question, will it be the same set list/show as last year? Does anyone know?



Cheers
:D
