The Future World Tour was a concert tour by Leonard Cohen, in support of his album The Future, released in 1992.

Overview[edit]

The tour was the first in five years, after the I'm Your Man Tour in 1988, and would be the last one until the Leonard Cohen Tour 2008–2010 15 years later.

The tour began with nine concerts in Northern Europe and would continue through Central and Southern Europe as well as two shows in England at the famous Royal Albert Hall. The first leg ended with a concert in Vienna. After a weeks break, the second leg began in Canada where 22 shows would be played during this leg. Another 15 shows would be played in the United States. The tour would eventually wrap up with two shows on the Canadian West Coast at the end of July in 1993.
