LEONARD Cohen wowed 10,000 spectators for three hours at his show in Madrid last night.

Although the legendary rocker has not stepped on stage for 15 years, the audience declared it was as though he had never been away.

Cohen started off his repertoire with the ironic ballad Dance me to the end of love to a standing ovation from the crowd.

He then went on to revive musical memories for his fans with There ain’t no cure for love, Bird on the wire, Everybody knows, and In my secret life.

A self-confessed fan of Generation of ’27 poet and playwright Federico García Lorca, Cohen paid tribute to the Granada-born literary legend with Take his waltz¸ the revolutionary First we take Manhattan, and So long, Marianne.

“Thank you for keeping my songs alive,” an emotional Leonard addressed the audience during his concert.

He is due to play in Atarfe (Granada) tonight, before travelling to Zaragoza on Tuesday, Bilbao on Thursday, Valencia on Friday and Barcelona on Monday, September 21.
