Recorded live on July 17, 2008 at London's 02 Arena, one of Europe's largest indoor venues during Leonard Cohen's phenomenal 2008 World Tour, Live In London offers definitive performances of classic songs drawn from the artist's then 40-year repertory. Cohen's first newly recorded release since 2004's gold-certified Dear Heather, the Live In London collection fully captures and recreates the extraordinary show that earned the distinct singer/songwriter more than 80 five-star reviews for performances during his fall 2008 UK and European tour. It also served as the first Cohen concert collection to be released since 2001's Field Commander Cohen: Tour of 1979.
