Leonard Cohen Will Tour Despite Health Concerns, Protesters
Leonard Cohen has to do everything the hard way. The singer and songwriter collapsed on stage Friday in Valencia, Spain. He still performed in Barcelona last night, on his 75th birthday. He also had plans for a bold twofer in Israel -- scheduling shows in Tel Aviv and the West Bank city of Ramallah, both of which had to be canceled after Palestinian protesters followed him around Europe demanding that he boycott Israel in exchange for permission to play in Ramallah.
Despite all that drama, Cohen still plans to be in South Florida next month for a show at the BankAtlantic in Sunrise.
