Fans with tickets to see Leonard Cohen have been told they must travel to a venue 75 miles away to see the veteran singer-songwriter perform.

The 77-year-old Canadian was due to play at the Hop Farm in Paddock Wood, Kent, on September 8 and 9, but has switched the concerts to London's Wembley Arena.

A Hop Farm spokesman said they were "disappointed" by the decision to switch venues, having only learned about it through a press release from Cohen's agent and promoter, which cited "unforeseen circumstances" for the change.

"Unfortunately we haven't been given any information as to why," he added.

Ticket-holders for the Hop Farm concerts were urged to contact their seller for a refund or a new ticket.
