Cohen's UK shows are part of a huge European tour that will see him travel across the majority of the continent during July and August.

He will visit cities such as Stockholm, Oslo, Hamburg, Rome and Vienna before heading to the UK.

The Canadian singer has also confirmed two shows at The O2 in Dublin, Ireland, which are set to take place after the UK shows on September 11th and 12th.
