Hear (Almost) Complete 1988 Leonard Cohen Royal Albert Hall Concert

On May 30, 1988, Leonard Cohen gave the first of three consecutive sold out concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. The BBC recorded the concert (from their own soundboard) but did not broadcast it. That audio-only recording later surfaced as this outstanding bootleg. Now, it has appeared on YouTube. Missing from the concert’s original set list is Avalanche” (performed before “Chelsea Hotel” in the show) and the final fragment of “Hallelujah.”
