Leonard Cohen to perform in Tel Aviv

Reading Ha’aretz this morning, I noted this news item. I’ve been a fan of the fellow since high school (before he made the music scene with Suzanne) and have seen him perform twice, the most recent time three months ago in Vancouver (yes, it was incredibly wonderful).

But I’d never considered how he might be received by an Israeli audience, given the plethora of Christian allusions throughout his work.  Will he play this audience differently?  I’d love to be there and see.

(a little ps here…I also noticed that Scientology is advertising in Ha’aretz.  That’s ambitious.)
