The Old Ideas World Tour was the final concert tour by Canadian poet and singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, and was in support of his 2012 album Old Ideas. The tour started in August 2012, and ended in December 2013. The tour received universal praise from media and fans alike. Guido Lauwaert (Knack) wrote about opening night “The 78-year-old poet and singer seems 50 years younger for the duration of the concert. What strikes me is a total lack of false feelings?”. Bart Steenhaut (DeMorgen) gave high praise to the musicians and Cohen himself, saying “Everyone was given ample opportunity to solo, and both backup singer ? Sharon Robinson and the British Webb Sisters ? were handed Cohen songs which they could shine on. Cohen himself singing downright excellent, though his deep, almost otherworldly baritone had not much variation in the set, exactly why was it right that the ladies often introduced a different timbre, and the rest of the band ? all virtuoso with an impressive track record ? could demonstrate their skill.” Another reviewer (Robert Heller of Bloomberg Businessweek) states of the Berlin show in 2012 that “On record, Cohen has tended toward more spartan sounds, stripped back to just his voice and an acoustic guitar. Live, he has assembled an immaculate band. It plays with a manicured sweetness: A mandolin and violin add spice and color, a Hammond organ richness and depth. The Webb Sisters and Sharon Robinson provide luminous backing, careful arrangements making full use of each singer’s tone.” (Wiki 2020) Content: Selected lyrics, photos, bibliography, discography, stickers, and much more.
