WATCH: U2 Pays Tribute To Leonard Cohen In Canada
U2 paid tribute to the late Leonard Cohen during their concert in Toronto last week.
“Tonight I’m holding onto the music of Leonard Cohen,” frontman Bono told the crowd inside the Rogers Centre. “He’s an addiction I’m not ready to give up.”
The singer then dedicated U2’s “Bad” to Cohen, who died last November.
Bono then had the stage lights turned off and asked the crowd to light up the stadium with their mobile devices.
“That’s beautiful. Stars coming out for Leonard,” he said.
Bono noted that Cohen came from Montreal, “but you know he loved this city.”
U2 then launched into Cohen's 1967 song “Suzanne.”
