Leonard Cohen tips his hat to the audience as he accepts the 2012 Awards for Song Lyrics of Literary Excellence, which was awarded to both he and Chuck Berry at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, in Boston, Mass., on February 26, 2012

The Leonard Cohen revival continues. The lady-killing septuagenarian is to play theatres and arenas across North America this fall and into the winter.

As announced by promoters AEG Live on Wednesday, the troubadour's 21-date jaunt begins in Austin, Texas, on Oct. 31., with a penultimate concert at New York's Madison Square Garden set for Dec. 18. European shows for the Old Ideas World Tour were announced previously.

The notion of the morose Montrealer filling hockey barns in 2012 would have been unthinkable a few years ago. But a triumphant string of concerts from 2008 to 2010 put the Hallelujah singer back in the public eye in a big way for the first time in 15 years.

And now with a new album (the poetic, reflective work Old Ideas), Cohen further supplements his pension and increases his applause.

Tickets for the Canadian dates go on sale May 11, with U.S. box offices taking orders beginning May 18.
