Leonard Cohen tour

Who said being old means you still can’t kick ass? 62-year-old Bruce Springsteen keeps extending the record for his longest concert, 93-year-old Pete Seeger has two new albums on the way, and last night, 77-year-old Leonard Cohen kicked off a 50-date world tour with a 33-song, four-encore performance in Ghent Belgium. Below, you can watch fan footage of “Save the Last Dance”, “I Can’t Forget”, “Dance Me To The End Of Love”, “Going Home”, “Come Healing”, and “The Partisan”. The guy still sounds good, and gets around pretty well — I couldn’t drop to me knees like that without pulling my back.
