Whats On

Aotearoa's own Imperfect Offering presents the music of Leonard Cohen. Titled "Of Love and Loss - Songs of Leonard Cohen", the focus is Cohen's life journey with the women he loved and the losses he experienced. The band takes you on a journey from Cohen's first album 'Songs of Leonard Cohen' in 1967 to his album 'You Want it Darker' released just weeks before his death in 2016. With a story that spans his Greek Island life with his muse Marianne to New York's artist hang-out Chelsea Hotel and a meeting with Janis Joplin, Imperfect Offering will present his most beloved songs.
