Born In Chains – The 2010 Las Vegas Rendition
“Born In Chains” was first performed in concert by Leonard Cohen at the July 27, 2010 Salzburg, Austria show and immediately captured a wide following among Cohen fans. It underwent many changes in its lyrics and its arrangement through the final months of the Tour. 1
The version performed on Dec 11, 2010 in Las Vegas (the last time, of course, the song was performed for the public) is notable for the prominent role played by Sharon Robinson.
