Members of The Lumineers to perform at Leonard Cohen tribute

ABC/Randy HolmesThe Lumineers frontman Wesley Schultz and percussionist Jeremiah Fraites will perform at a tribute concert held in honor of the late Leonard Cohen. The show, officially dubbed Tower of Song: A Memorial Tribute to Leonard Cohen, will be held November 6 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Other artists scheduled to play the event include Elvis Costello, Lana Del Rey, Feist and Sting, plus Cohen's son Adam Cohen, who organized the concert.

"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,'" Adam writes in a Facebook post. "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 elder Cohen died November 2016 at age 82.

Tickets to the Tower of Song event will go on sale this Saturday, September 23 at noon ET. Visit LeonardCohen.com for all info.
