Night Comes On

Leonard Cohen performed  Night Comes On with some frequency in the 1985 campaign. He next played it on October 29, 2010 in Auckland, New Zealand. That was his last live performance of Night Comes On – until this Tour. (More information about the history of this song can be found at Leonard Cohen Performs Night Comes On.)

Night Comes On was played twice in the Ghent concerts, but thus far no videos of those performances have surfaced (videos of Night Comes On performed in Ghent soundchecks are available).  Night Comes On, however, was the 18th song in the August 21, 2012 Amsterdam Concert and a video of it was uploaded this morning.

The following video includes these three songs:

  1. Suzanne
  2. Night Comes On
  3. Gypsy’s Wife
