Lana Del Rey, Elvis Costello, Sting to Lead Leonard Cohen Tribute in Montreal

Lana Del Rey, Elvis Costello, Sting, Philip Glass and Feist are among the artists that will perform at a Leonard Cohen tribute concert scheduled for the anniversary of the music legend’s death.

The Lumineers’ Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites, k.d. lang, Damien Rice, Patrick Watson and Cohen’s son Adam Cohen will also take part in Tower of Song: A Memorial Tribute to Leonard Cohen at Montreal’s Bell Center on November 6th. Cohen died November 7th, 2016 in Los Angeles.

“My father left me with a list of instructions before he passed: ‘Put me in a pine box next to my mother and father. Have a small memorial for close friends and family in Los Angeles…and if you want a public event, do it in Montreal,’ Adam Cohen said of the tribute concert in a statement. “I see this concert as a fulfillment of my duties to my father that we gather in Montreal to ring the bells that still can ring.”

Organizers will announce additional artists as well as actors recruited to recite some of Cohen’s poems live in the near future.

Longtime concert producer Hal Willner will oversee the tribute concert, which benefits the Canada Council for the Arts, the Council of Arts and Letters of Quebec and the Montreal Arts Council.

“Leonard Cohen is a literary and musical icon of word-craft,” Willner said in a statement. “On the first anniversary of his passing, we will endeavor to present a tribute to an artist who is universally acknowledged as one of the great poets and songwriters of all time.”

Tickets for the tribute concert, which will also be filmed for an upcoming special, go on sale Saturday, September 23rd at evenko.ca

Three days after the Tower of Song tribute, on November 9th, the Montreal Museum will open its exhibit dedicated to the singer, “Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything.”

Watch Foo Fighters Cover AC/DC With Hives Singer in Sweden

Foo Fighters played a secret gig in Stockholm, Sweden on the eve of the release of their new LP Concrete and Gold, and to close out the concert, Dave Grohl and company brought out the Hives‘ fiery frontman Pelle Almqvist to cover AC/DC‘s “Let There Be Rock.”

Before bringing out “Howlin’ Pelle,” Grohl talked about his long admiration for the Hives singer, even dressing as Almqvist and covering the Hives’ “Hate to Say I Told You So” at Foo Fighters’ Halloween 2002 gig in New York.

“So tonight I thought it would be a good idea if we did a song together, one that we’ve never played with him before, but I think it makes perfect sense for this show,” Grohl said as he the intro to Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” before tearing into the 1977 AC/DC track, which Foo Fighters have frequently performed live since 2015.

In 2016, when AC/DC’s Brian Johnson announced he had to step away from the band, Almqvist was among the rockers who openly lobbied to be his replacement, Blabbermouth notes.

“I have many, many years of experience rocking the world’s biggest stages and, according to others, I am the greatest frontman in rock, plus judging from the reaction in Australia, your crowd already seems to really like me,” Almqvist wrote on the Hives’ Facebook at the time. “Plus, I have already been singing those songs since I was six years old. So, AC/DC, please consider my application.”

Hear Jack Johnson Unearth Minor Threat Cover on Mike D's Beats 1 Show

Jack Johnson unearthed a song from his high school-era Minor Threat cover band during a visit to Mike D’s Beats 1 radio show The Echo Chamber.

As Johnson told the Beastie Boys rapper, he and his band Limber Chicken initially planned on starting a Fugazi cover band before realizing that Fugazi’s music was actually “pretty complex.”

“So then we figured out that they had Minor Threat ahead of time, that Ian [MacKaye] had been in Minor Threat [before Fugazi] and once we heard this we were like, ‘Okay, I think we can do this’ and so we became a Minor Threat cover band, that was like 90 percent of our repertoire,” Johnson said.

“It was amazing time. I mean anybody who’s ever formed your first band or any band you know just knows that’s like the funniest thing in the world is just getting to get to your friends in the garage and making a bunch of music.”

For The Echo Chamber, Johnson dug out Limber Chicken’s version of “Steppin’ Stone,” a Monkees single that Minor Threat covered on their In My Eyes EP. Sex Pistols, Johnny Thunders and dozens of punk bands frequently covered the Boyce and Hart-penned track.

“So this is us covering Minor Threat covering the Monkees,” Johnson said before debuting the rough recording of “Steppin’ Stone.”

Johnson recently released All the Light Above It Too, his first LP in four years.
