Night after night, Leonard Cohen and his band of expert musicians have earned five-star reviews and left audiences spellbound.

MTV Hive recounted that “Cohen sprinted to the mic at the beginning of the evening, and skipped offstage at the end, and in between, delivered a reminder of everything that has made him the icon and legend that he is.”

MSN gave a glowing assessment that “There are great ones, and then there are the ones where it seems the whole outside world has disappeared and nothing exists but what’s happening between artist and audience. This was one of those, full of goose-bump moments.”

Los Angeles Times reported that “Cohen's generosity was real—nearly 30 songs worth—and it confirmed his place as one of the most accomplished songwriters of the past four decades.”

Variety was impressed by how “he captivated, charmed and conquered a sold-out audience, hardly seeming to break a sweat in the process,” and Fort Worth Star-Telegram was equally captivated: “Seeing someone of Cohen's stature continue to draw so much evident joy from sharing his art with an adoring audience restores a person's faith in music.”

Rolling Stone remarked that Cohen “left no doubt that he's as vital–both physically and as a cultural asset–as he's ever been,” and Oakland Tribune simply stated “All hail Leonard Cohen.”
