The "Old Ideas World Tour 2012" follows Cohen's triumphant 2008-2010 world tour -- his first in 15 years -- which was met with overwhelming praise. The New York Times reported that "Mr. Cohen sang these words with a kind of gracious generosity...awash in wild applause," while The San Jose Mercury News reported "The show underscored what his fans already know: Leonard Cohen is one of the greatest singer-songwriters in the history of popular music." The Victoria Times Colonist reported that Cohen received "an automatic standing ovation at what was clearly the Church of Leonard." The Vancouver Sun called the show "nothing short of a religious experience" and the Toronto Sun declared Leonard Cohen "Charming, funny, poignant, smart, sharp, sexy... he is still a ladykiller."
