Leonard Cohen's March 11 show at Winnipeg's MTS Centre has been re-scheduled to April 26, due to an outbreak of the flu among several band members.

Cohen's Los Angeles-based promoter made the announcement late Friday, saying Cohen "regretfully" made the rare decision to re-schedule the show out of concern for the health of his musicians.

All tickets for next Monday's performance will be honoured for the April concert, the MTS Centre said in a news release.
