In 2008 MIF presented Leonard Cohen live in Manchester for four special nights. His first UK shows in 15 years, these one-off intimate shows marked a year out from the 2009 Festival.
"The presence of an icon like this is simply a major cultural event
in any city's calendar"
The Independent, 5 stars
"More than 15 years have passed since Leonard Cohen last graced a British stage, but the 73 year-old poet-turned crooner was on suave form at the start of a four- night stint at Manchester International Festival last night"
The Times, 4 stars
