Imperfect Offering is delighted to perform in the Addison Theatre at Baycourt, Tauranga for the first time with a programme of music of the great singer-songwriter-poet Leonard Cohen. A full nine-piece band even including violin and balalaika brings his sound to life with great songs including 'Hallelujah', 'Bird on a Wire', 'So Long Marianne' and more.

The focus will be on Cohen’s life journey through his music on his first album Songs of Leonard Cohen in 1967 to his last album You Want it Darker released just weeks before his death in 2016. With a story that spans from a Jewish upbringing in Montreal, through Greek Island life with his muse Marianne to New York’s artist hang-out Chelsea Hotel to a Zen Buddhist sanctuary on Mount Baldy, Imperfect Offering will present the best songs from this journey.

Imperfect Offering have performed in sold out shows and standing ovations on a tour of the North Island. Venues have included New Plymouth, Whangarei, Kerikeri, Wellington, Hamilton, Napier and the Concert Chamber of the Auckland Town Hall.

"Truly a special concert performed for the memory of a very special man." - Reuben Raj, Radio13
