An official Leonard Cohenpress release reads as follows:

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Leonard Cohen’s two shows at Hop Farm, Kent on 8 and 9 September will no longer be taking place at that venue. However, Cohen will now be performing at a new London venue on the same dates.

Cohen will still bring his much anticipated Old Ideas World tour to the UK with the scheduled shows now taking place in the fully seated and historic Wembley Arena on 8 and 9 September.

Leonard Cohen’s Old Ideas World Tour opened in Ghent, Belgium with five sold-out shows and reviews that were even more superlative than for his previous world tour. Nieuwsblad declared “Leonard Cohen steals all hearts in Ghent…a sultry, musically great evening” while De Standaard stated that “Cohen kept the audience effortlessly captivated with new songs from his new album, and many classics… He is a category and class apart.” La Presse hailed “The concert…Impeccable. Generous. Sometimes moving… His concert is a rare depth, away from the din and the ephemeral of the modern world.” Luxemburger Wort recounted “A rare concert and perfect in every way… Exceptional sound quality at the site can detect the notes of every instrumentalist.” Finally, De Telegraaf concluded “We were moved to tears…The man is the embodiment of enchantment.”
