Rarely Seen Performance From The Future Tour 1993
Tom Sakic,1 uploaded an audience recording of Leonard Cohen and his band performing “Bird on the Wire” at the Alt Oper, Frankfurt, Germany, May 27, 1993. Featured on guitar is Bob Metzger, who was also guitarist for the 2008-2010 Leonard Cohen World Tour.
While the visual aspect is suboptimal by today’s standards, the video is watchable, and the audio quality is good. Add in the fact that performances of this song from the 1993 Tour are hard to find, and this video ranks as a must-see for any Cohen fan.
