Leonard Cohen To Play The Spectrum

In what's shaping up to be quite an October in South Philly, Leonard Cohen will return to town to play the Spectrum on Oct. 22. (Bruce Springsteen is already on the docket for October 13 and 14, and Pearl Jam will close out the building on October 28 and 30.) The by then 75 year old poet-troubadour, you might recall, played the Academy of Music in May and put on a show that an Inquirer critic called "magnificent." (That's David Swanson's picture from that nght).
