Leonard Cohen has ditched his headline slot at Hop Farm Festival in favour of two Wembly Arena gigs on the same dates.
The singer has not provided fans with an explanation for the move, while Hop Farm themselves only received word that Cohen would not be performing through a press release from his agent and promoter.
According to the Telegraph, a spokesman for Hop Farm said they were "disappointed" by his decision, which was apparently down to 'unforeseen circumstances'. Hmmm.
The legendary singer-songwriter will now play in London on September 8 and 9. Ticketholders for the Hop Farm concerts should contact their point of sale for a refund or new ticket issue.
More tickets are also now on sale for the two shows. Previously, the September 8 show was sold out.
The 77 year-old, who released his 12th studio album 'Old Ideas' in January, will play a three-hour set. The two dates will be Cohen's only UK shows of his 2012 world tour.
'Old Ideas' has been nominated for the Polaris Music Prize – the Canadian equivalent of the Mercury Music Prize.
A Day At The Hop Farm Festival organiser Vince Power said: "I would like to apologise to all the customers who have already bought tickets and hope they can still enjoy what are going to be two amazing shows at Wembley Arena."
Not cool, Leonard!
