Between 2008 and 2013, Leonard Cohen treated Ireland to a dozen captivating performances, with six held at the esteemed 3Arena. His Irish farewell unfolded over two poignant nights on September 11th and 12th, 2013, at the 3Arena. The recording of his September 12th show was subsequently released as the Live In Dublin Triple Album, marking Cohen’s final album release.

The love affair between Leonard Cohen and Ireland blossomed late but endured until the end”
