Sorry British fans! You won’t get to see Leonard Cohen dip apples in honey onstage.

The Canadian performer has reportedly rescheduled shows in Leeds and London after he realized that the dates fell on Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, the BBC reported.

A statement released on behalf of the 78-year-old and promoter AEG apologized “deeply for the inconvenience.” Cohen will now be playing the First Direct Arena in Leeds on 7 September and the 02 Arena in London on 15 September.

In case you were wondering, Rosh Hashanah falls on September 5-6 and Yom Kippur is on September 14. Don’t be late!
