Recently, unconfirmed stories have leaked from the Cohen organization suggesting that each of the USA concerts on the final leg of the Leonard Cohen World Tour beginning this Fall will feature venue-specific components of a grander scale than the insertion of the city's name into Hallelujah (e.g., " I didnt come to the great city of Dublin to fool you.") Our operatives have secured a video of a fragment of a Cohen rehearsal which supports those rumors.
The final scene in the World Tour concerts has typically been the entire crew gathering to sing Whither Thou Goest, after which Cohen says his final words and the blessings. While that format has been well received in general, there is apparently concern in the Cohen camp that it may be too drab and somber for the New York crowd. In any case, this brief section of the rehearsal of the final number for the last Leonard Cohen World Tour New York concert is striking.
