LEONARD Cohen has announced details of a one-off open-air show at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge, Surrey on July 11, 2009.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday, April 17, at 10am and are priced at £65 and £55.

For Mercedes-Benz World, the concert marks the second series of open air summer concerts following the unprecedented success of last year’s performances by Sir Elton John, Sugababes and McFly.

The Brooklands-based site is a unique venue and ideal to make this concert very special and Cohen will perform his hits, including Hallelujah, Bird On The Wire, I’m Your Man, Suzanne and First We Take Manhattan in a fully seated outdoor venue staged within a specially constructed arena at Mercedes-Benz World, Weybridge, Surrey.

Leonard Cohen also plays an indoor concert at the Liverpool Echo Arena on Tuesday, July 14.
