New DVD – Leonard Cohen Bird on a Wire.


We were recently at the UK premier of the long awaited’ ‘Leonard Cohen Bird on a Wire’ film at the Green Man festival.

The film was introduced by Tony Palmer who described in detail the painstaking way the release had been put together.

The Leonard Cohen Bird on a Wire DVD (live in Europe 1972) is released on September 6th and can be purchased here.

For more information about the process of making the film you can visit Tony Palmer’s blog.

  1. If you have the tiniest vestige of emotion and/or empathy with this man, this film wil bring you to tears, as it did with me…. particularly the final scenes.

    If I’d been at that concert in 1972(I’d have been just 28!), I would have felt the unbridled urge to give him the hug that he SO much needed at the end!!… especially when you see the behind-the-scenes footage.

    I plan to use the 1972 version of ‘Bird on a Wire’ as part of my attempt to woo my ex-wife back to me!

    This man is an unwitting prophet!!

    Thanks Leonard for all your influence has meant to me, and done for me, and will hopefully still do for me!
