Leonard Cohen Set List

Leonard Cohen Set List


Ridiculously sublime Leonard Cohen show at the Academy of Music on Tuesday night. He sang like an angel whose been smoking four packs a day for 74 years. Played for 3 hours, backed by the fabulously well dressed band (and Fedora wearing roadcrew) here singing "Whither Thou Goest" and getting ready to take their final bows. I took the picture above, and David Swanson took a whole bunch of better ones that are here. My review is here. Here's the set list:

First set: Dance Me To The End Of Love/The Future/Ain't No Cure For Love/Bird On The Wire/Everybody Knows/In My Secret Life/Who By Fire/Chelsea Hotel No. 2/Waiting For The Miracle/Anthem

Second set: Tower Of Song/Suzanne/Sisters of Mercy/Take This Waltz/Boogie Street/Hallelujah/I'm Your Man/A Thousand Kisses Deep/Democracy

Encores: So Long, Marianne/First We Take Manhattan/Famous Blue Raincoat/If It Be Your Will/Closing Time/I Tried To Leave You/Whither Thou Goest
