Leonard Cohen must not be paying attention to his own lyrics, for he once wrote about first taking Manhattan and “then we’ll take Berlin.” But lo and behold, there’s Berlin on this afternoon’s update – October 4 at O2 World – with nary a mention of a New York City date anytime before the first week of October. Other new Germany dates for the songwriting legend include Munich on October 6, Hamburg on October 31 and Oberhausen on November 2.

Sheryl Crow travels to Japan in mid-December. Right now the schedule includes Osaka on December 10 and two dates in Tokyo, December 11 & 12.

Lots of new club dates for Black Cobra. Look for the gloom-and-doom heavy rockers to play Albuquerque on August 2, Lubbock on August 3, and Dallas on August 5. Other dates include Shreveport on August 7, Providence on August 15 and Buffalo on August 16.

Brian Setzer Orchestra take their brand of jump blues to Japan in late January / early February. Dates include Nagoya on January 25, Osaka on January 27, Hiroshima on January 30 and Tokyo on February 2, 4 & 5.

During the last couple of hours we also updated the schedules for Cash Cash, Burning Spear, Bodies Of Water, Canvas, Billy Joel, Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush, Colbie Caillat, Henry Grimes, Joey Gilmore, Port O’Brien, Shawn Colvin, The Builders & The Butchers, The Fury, The Commander Cody Band and The World Famous Lipizzaner Stallions.

But we’re still researching, still analyzing, still slamming dates into our massive concert database while chugging Red Bull and munching M&Ms. Don’t miss your last update of the day – The Closing Bell – coming up around 5 pm (PDT), from Pollstar.com!
