Leonard Cohen, the esteemed Canadian poet, novelist, and musician, is set to perform at his first concert in the United States in over 15 years.

He will perform in New York City on February 19th at the Beacon Theater.

Cohen is enjoying a recent resurgence in the popularity of his music, as his heart-breaking 1984 classic “Hallelujah” recently made music history in December when it held three different places (including #1 and #2) on the UK singles charts simultaneously.

Veteran folk singer Leonard Cohen, forced back on the road after his business manager lost his retirement savings, will play his first U.S. concert in more than 15 years next month, a spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

The 74-year-old Canadian icon will perform at the Beacon Theater in New York City on February 19. Tickets for the show at the 2,800-seat venue will go on sale on Friday.

Although this will be Cohen’s first American concert in many years, he has been performing elsewhere in the world, having recently toured across Canada and Europe, and he is about to complete a tour of New Zealand and Australia.
