Leonard Cohen adds Tampa tour date
Regularly priced tickets start at $59.50 and go on sale at noon Jan. 18.
Cohen’s current group features former Sarasotan and Gregg Allman Band leader Neil Larsen (keyboards & Hammond B3 accordion), Sharon Robinson and the Webb Sisters (background vocals), Roscoe Beck (musical director and bass), Mitch Watkins (guitar), Javier Mas (bandurria, laud, archilaud, 12-string acoustic guitar), Rafael Gayol (drums, percussion) and Alexandru Bublitchi (violin).
Cohen's latest album, the excellent 'Old Ideas," features the poignant, humorous, heaven-bound farewell song "Going Home," which Rolling Stone ranks among the best of 2012.
