Leonard Cohen fans from around the world flocked to the Bell Centre last night for the star-studded tribute concert to the legendary singer and artist.
Sting, Feist, Lana Del Rey, Seth Rogan, Elvis Costello and many more stars took the stage to pay homage to Cohen and his artistry.
Here are some standout moments from last night’s concert.
To be able to celebrate the life of such a special man tonight amongst such devoted fans and talented musicians, I have to say, I feel pretty lucky. Tonight our hearts were beating to the poetry and songs of Leonard Cohen. “It’s time that we began to laugh And cry and cry and laugh about it all again…”
