Following the tragic passing of Leonard Cohen last month, a number of Aussie acts are coming together for a special concert to celebrate the life and music of the iconic artist. 

Taking place on 14 January at the Meriton Festival Village in support of the 2017 Sydney Festival, the show is to be headlined by Steve Kilbey, frontman of ARIA Hall Of Fame band, The Church, who described Cohen as "a master of melancholia and understatement, always more implied than stated".

Other names confirmed to perform on the night include Jack Ladder, Holiday Sidewinder (Bridezilla), Broads, Elana Stone (All Our Exes Live In Texas) and Lindsay 'The Doctor' MacDougall.

Acclaimed Cohen interpreter Mikelangelo will also make his way through the late songwriter's final album, You Want It Darker, along with other classic tracks, accompanied by his band, Spectres Of Love.

Tickets for the concert are on sale now — for more details, click on theGuide.
