Leonard Cohen: Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Colorado

Steven R Rosen, Denver Post, 4 June 2009

IF LEONARD COHEN, now 74, intends to retire from performing after his current tour, he couldn't have picked a better venue for his final North American show. Colorado's outdoor Red Rocks Amphitheatre, built into the foothills just west of Denver, is breathtaking enough to make you patriotically sing out "America the Beautiful" even at an otherwise-rowdy Sex Pistols show. (The reunited Pistols played there a decade or so ago.)
