Injured Cohen postpones tour

SINGING legend Leonard Cohen has postponed his European tour by six months after hurting his back.

A statement said his doctors advised the 75-year-old to follow the same four- to six-month regime of physical therapy as athletes do with similar injuries.

His nine-date tour, which was set to begin on March 1 in the French city of Caen, will now begin on September 15, with shows scheduled through to October 7 in Moscow.
