From the Vimeo Description:
In the summer of 2012, Leonard invited me to see his tour rehearsal. I assumed there would be several dozen people there, but I was the only one he had invited. It took a few songs for it to fully sink in that I was essentially being given a private concert. During a break, I asked him if it would be okay if I shot some video on my iPhone. He immediately agreed. “It helps me to have some distractions,” he said. I’ve only shown this footage to a few friends. I hope you enjoy it.
While the location is not indicated, the 2012 tour rehearsals were held at at Studio Instrument Rentals (SIR) in Los Angeles.

I urge viewers to take a close look at this set of photos from the August 28, 2012 Leonard Cohen Bergen Concert because they, to borrow Pete Purnell’s phrasing, capture moments and subtle gestures that are rarely caught in the photos of the all too familiar poses favored by editors of media sites.
These photos are the work of jarlehm. These shots, along with other selections from this concert and some amazing photos of other, distinctly non-Cohenesque musicians, including Slash, Ozzy Osbourne, Slayer, Rhianna, … can be found.
Worthy of special note are
