Leonard Cohen - Everybody Knows (CBC Special 2008-11-09).mpg
This summer, Leonard Cohen went home for the first time in 15 years, and his city held a really loud party for him.
The occasion was the annual Montreal International Jazz Festival, and the event combined a free outdoor tribute concert for more than 100,000 on the city's main drag, rue Ste-Catherine, and an indoor concert by Himself at Place des Arts.
Leonard Cohen: Everybody Knows, airing Sunday on CBC, is a partial record of that event.
The show consists of black-and-white footage of Cohen performing such hits as "Hallelujah", "Suzanne" and "Closing Time" from the concert hall, intercut with colour film of the outdoor concert.
Here's a clip from the show on YouTube:
