They will perform his best-loved songs including “Suzanne”, “Bird on the Wire”, “Hallelujah” as well as songs from Cohen’s last album, “You Want It Darker”. They had stand-out successes last year in Auckland and this month in Hamilton, with sold-out shows in all venues. They were featured on Television NZ when the news broke of Cohen’s death in November 2016.
