Sold-out Cohen adds another date

Singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen has added a third date to his emotional return to Dublin later this year.

Tickets for the first two shows in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham on September 11 and 12 sold out in hours last week, prompting the additional performance.

The 77-year-old, who broke a 10-year hiatus from live shows by performing at the Irish Museum of Modern Art (Imma) in 2008, will play the third night on Friday September 14.

He credited the audience that night with reducing him to tears with their warmth.

Tickets for the first of the all-seated shows sold in less than 10 minutes and the second a few hours later and the tickets for the third show, priced from 79.50 euro, will be available from 9am on Thursday April 19.
