    Default Leonard Cohen recovers from collapse (now an LC tour dates thread)

    Leonard Cohen is recovering after collapsing onstage while on tour in eastern Spain, his music company said Saturday.
    The veteran poet and performer has been released from hospital after suffering from a stomach complaint, Doctor Music Concerts said in a statement.

    Cohen was part-way through his song "Bird on the Wire" in Valencia when he fainted, causing the band to stop playing to rush to his aid as concertgoers watched. The concert was stopped.

    A video showing Cohen kneeling down several times during the performance and then keeling over sideways during a saxophone solo has been placed on YouTube on the Web by a fan.

    The Canadian-born musician, who will be 75 years-old on Monday, was taken in an ambulance to the Nueve de Octubre hospital in Valencia but released early Saturday, Barcelona-based Doctor Music Concerts said.

    Cohen was due to perform the last show of his Spanish tour at the Palau Sant Jordi concert hall in northeastern Barcelona on Monday. Trucks carrying Cohen's show had arrived at the hall on Saturday morning and were to set up as normal, a spokesman for the concert hall said.

    Cohen had to come out of retirement five years ago when he discovered that most of his retirement fund had disappeared in a disputed case of mismanagement.

    After leaving Spain Cohen was due to perform next at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida on Oct. 17, his Web site said.

    i hope he's ok. what a trooper...if i was feeling like i was going to faint, i probably woulda walked off stage during those solos to find a chair. take an intermission or something....he just kept going. i'm so glad i got to see him once in my life.

    I had no idea he came out of retirement because he was broke. How fucking sad. A travesty. Best wishes to Mr. Cohen.

    "mismanaged retirement fund" = a bunch of people leeching off his prior success and then leave him high and dry.

    they were probably betting on the fact that he wouldn't make it to 70...

    It wasn't even a bunch of people though. It was his manager, misdirecting funds towards himself and telling Leonard that he's got everything under control. Massively shady business.

    Just the other day I was listening to one of his albums and thinking how grateful I was to see him since he's probably going to decline to the point of not being able to perform any day now. Best of luck to the man.

    I have never been happier to hear that somebody has food poisoning. I am relieved that it is not something more serious. Loenard Cohen most certainly needs to keep touring well into his 90s.
