To celebrate and contribute to the restoration of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Canadian musician and songwriter Leonard Cohen will perform at the Olympic Stadium on November 27. To aid victims of Cambodia's recent tragic past, proceeds from this concert will benefit the Cambodian Red Cross and Cambodians with disabilities.

This major entertainment showcase will be held under the patronage of Hun Sen, prime minister of Cambodia, and wife Bun Rany, president of the Cambodian Red Cross. A highlight is also Phnom Penh's newly built Olympic Stadium, a rare example of the work of famous Khmer architect Vann Molyvan, whose modern mix of classical Khmer designs is a subject of international interest.
