If you were surprised by just how early the high holidays are this year, you’re in good company.

Iconic Jewish singer Leonard Cohen has just rescheduled two dates on his UK tour after learning they fell out on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, BBC News reports.

The 78-year-old is already publicly repenting, apologizing “deeply for the inconvenience” he has caused fans–via a statement from his promoter, anyway.

FYI for those who still haven’t checked your Jewish calendars: The New Year hits on Sept. 5 and 6 and Yom Kippur is Sept. 14. Oh, and with Hanukkah falling on Nov. 28, Thanksgiving evening, we’ll be lighting the menorah over turkey this year. Luckily for Cohen this won’t be an issue. He’s Canadian.
