This book documents the wildly successful Leonard Cohen World Tour through the eyes of his friend and longtime collaborator, Sharon Robinson.
Sharon Robinson has been associated with Cohen since the Field Commander Cohen tour of 1979-80, first as a singer and subsequently as his co-writer and producer. She was drafted into the then-current iteration of Cohen's band, The Unified Heart Touring Company, from the onset, and was literally been at his side for over 400 shows. Robinson has captured her experience behind the scenes with the complete freedom afforded her by her unique position.
On Tour with Leonard Cohen is an impressionistic view of what it was like to be on tour with the legendary singer-songwriter poet. Robinson reveals the nitty-gritty of day-to-day life of the road, onstage and behind the scenes, and the chemistry of Cohen and his supporting artists, together on an incredible journey across the globe, their hearts and minds focused on the next show.
