From Leonard Cohen sang for 15,000 fans in Bucharest (Stiri TV: 23 September 2012) [via Google Translate]:
At 78 years and one day, Leonard Cohen has gathered over 15,000 spectators Saturday night in Constitution Square, according to TVR. Among them, many young people who were not even born when the artist was already in vogue….It is a source of pride for us hat one of the musicians chosen to accompany Cohen on the tour is Moldavian violinist Alexandru Bublitchi. Leonard Cohen turned 78 on September 21. Four years ago, when he was 74, Cohen was in Bucharest for his first concert in Romania. He celebrated his birthday on stage and his audience sang “Happy Birthday.” He liked it so much that in 2009 he returned to Bucharest.
