Listen: Leonard Cohen concert in London (complete)

Exclusive First Listen: Leonard Cohen : NPR Music

"Now 72 years old, Leonard Cohen has spent much of the past decade in solitude, exploring his own spirituality and his place in an ever-changing world. But in July of 2008, he took the stage at London's 02 Arena and gave a stunning performance, as part of his first tour in 15 years."

This is one of the best things ever online. It also makes me want to buy the album, so it's a winning ploy. "Thank you friends. We're so privileged to be able to gather on occasions like this, when so much of the world is plunged into darkness and chaos." [Applause] "So...Ring the bells that still can ring."
