The debut show was a spectacular show in front of 30,000 people in All Together Now in 2019.
Then there were two sold-out shows at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in March 2020.
Now back by popular demand, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra will perform the words and music of Leonard Cohen once again, with a pair of concerts at Dublin's Bord Gáis Energy Theatre on Sunday 17th and Monday 18 April 2022.

Performing across the two nights are an ensemble of Ireland's finest singing and acting talents, offering their unique interpretations of Cohen's oeuvre: Jack Lukeman, Phelim Drew, Suzanne Savage, Jess Kavanagh, Moncrieff, Tony Flynn, Kate O'Toole and John Mc Kenna.
In these uncertain times, Leonard Cohen's laconic worldview is needed now more than ever. As the man himself says in his song Anthem:
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in
Led by conductor Gavin Maloney, the setlist will revisit classics from every period of the Canadian master's 50-year recording career.
