Product Description
Product Details

Performer Notes
  • After the critical and commercial success of Live in London, which was issued in 2009, Leonard Cohen and Sony decided to follow it up with a second volume. Whereas the aforementioned date was the complete record of a single evening at one venue in 2008, Songs from the Road is a DVD/CD package that documents his world tour during that year through 2009. It features the same band performing 12 well-known songs from throughout the songwriter's career in various locations around the globe. The DVD also includes an intimate 20-minute backstage interview. This was a historic tour for Cohen, who began it at age 73, playing 84 shows and selling over 700,000 tickets. Recorded in high definition, the set was also made available on Blu-ray. In addition to the other two formats, the audio portion was made available as a 180-gram vinyl LP as well.
