This video captures the poignant scene as Leonard Cohen performs Save The Last Dance For Me, a song made famous by The Drifters in 1960 (see “Save The Last Dance For Me,” Doc Pomus, & Leonard Cohen), and summons the entire Unified Heart Touring Company crew to the stage to end the Dec 21, 2013 Auckland show, the final concert of the 2013 tour – and the last time Leonard Cohen performed in public.
You can dance every dance with the guy
Who gives you the eye, let him hold you tight
You can smile every smile for the man
Who held your hand ‘neath the pale moon light
But don’t forget who’s takin’ you home
And in whose arms you’re gonna be
So darlin’ save the last dance for me
Leonard Cohen – Save The Last Dance For Me
Auckland: Dec 21, 2013
