This brief video shows Leonard Cohen and his musicians rehearsing “Ain’t No Cure For Love” on a sweltering July day in 2008. The location and exact date are not given, but based on the month and year provided (July 2008) and that stage platform with the white markings, I suspect this rehearsal took place before the July 1, 2008 Leonard Cohen concert in Oslo.
Seeing Leonard and company in civilian clothes, The Webb Sisters & Sharon Robinson moving to the music, and Leonard rehearsing kneeling before Javier Mas is a treat.
Note: The first 27 seconds of the video is a 2007 Lou Reed soundcheck. The video player should automatically begin 27 seconds into the film with Leonard Cohen rehearsing; if not, simply advance the video to that mark or enjoy Lou Reed.

In addition to an excellent performance of Dance Me To The End Of Love, this video displays Leonard Cohen opening the concert by running onto the stage and flashing an especially broad smile. (He closes the song with another beaming smile.) The screenshot atop this post also captures drummer Rafael Gayol photographing the audience photographing Leonard Cohen and the band.
