Leonard Cohen will play two shows at the Hop Farm in Kent (also the home of June’s Hop Farm festival) in September, a second date having been announced this week after the huge demand for a first show. Cohen, who released his latest LP ‘Old Ideas’ to great acclaim earlier this year, will play to seated crowds on 8-9 Sep. Ticket prices (albeit for a 3 hour set) range from a modest £65 to a less modest £95.

Blinking a lot so as to hide the pound signs in his eyes, the event’s organiser Vince Power says: “The demand has been overwhelming and it’s fantastic to announce the extra date. These will be Leonard Cohen’s only UK dates this year and we’re over the moon he’s decided to play them here. It promises to be a fantastic weekend”.
