Tower of Song DVD (Long Description)
American Public Television (APT) distributed a specially edited one-hour edition of the Bell Centre concert Tower of Song: A Memorial Tribute to Leonard Cohen for US public television pledge drives from June 2018 to June 2020.
This DVD of the broadcast is the same concert made available to APT patrons in return for a pledge to their local PBS station. This DVD won the award in 2018 as the best APT concert performance of the year.
Viewers of this concert on PBS stations paid over $100 for this DVD, which has only been available for purchase through US public television pledge drives. UHPF declined to renew with APT so that fans could have a copy of this award-winning DVD as part of the UHPF Memorial Box Set.
Bonus material on the DVD includes Leonard performing “Who by Fire” in Auckland, NZ during his Old Ideas World Tour in 2013. Another bonus features archival material of Leonard from the Canadian Broadcast Company dating back to 1966.
