Leonard passed away in his sleep last year after experiencing a fall in the night. He was 82 at the time of his death. The musician’s son released a statement saying that his dad personally requested the location prior to his passing.

“My father left me with a list of instructions before he passed: ‘Put me in a pine box next to my mother and father. Have a small memorial for close friends and family in Los Angeles…and if you want a public event do it in Montreal.’ I see this concert as a fulfillment of my duties to my father that we gather in Montreal to ring the bells that still can ring.”

The Tower of Song: A Memorial Tribute to Leonard Cohen will be held at Montreal’s Bell Center on November 6.
