Leonard Cohen cancels Hawaiian gig, adds stops in Vancouver and Oakland

on September 30, 2010, 11:20am

From his music, you can tell Leonard Cohen has felt a lot of pain, anguish that he vividly describes in heartbreaking song after heartbreaking song. Turns out, though, his fans may feel the same. Cohen has canceled a December 4th gig in the island paradise of Hawaii for shows in Vancouver (where he’ll freeze to death) and Oakland (where he’ll die from lack of drinks that come in coconuts).

According to Pollstar, AEG Live nixed the gig due to “prohibitive and insurmountable logistical issues”, which probably means they ran out of leis. The new dates are scheduled for December 2nd in Vancouver, BC at the Rogers Arena and then two shows at Oakland, CA’s Paramount Theatre for December 5th and 6th. While AEG isn’t rescheduling the Hawaii gig, they are offering refunds and the chance for people to re-purchase tickets to the newly announced shows. Gee, cause Hawaii is only a 40-minute car ride from Oakland. In a magic car-boat!

Enjoy the updated itinerary below. Fan club pre-sales for the new shows start Oct. 7 at 10 a.m. and end Oct. 8 at 10 a.m. at Cohen’s official site. Or, you can always buy your tickets via Ticketmaster.com, with tickets on sale October 9th and October 10th at 10 a.m. for Vancouver and Oakland, respectively.
