Having first found fame as a teenager in 1960s England, Cat Stevens grew from being a teen idol into becoming one of the most influential singer-songwriters of all time. In addition to his vast musical achievements, his lifelong spiritual quest and search for meaning has added intrigue and depth to a groundbreaking career.
A Cat’s Attic “Peace Train Tour” commemorates the 50th Anniversary of Yusuf / Cat Stevens’ first major hit single and debut album Matthew & Son released in 1967.
Yusuf / Cat Stevens toured Australia in 2010, it was his first Australian tour in 36 years and it had the critics raving:
“....Yusuf played it as recorded, reminding all how rare are songs of such exquisite beauty. And how much we've missed them.” The Australian
“...there was nothing but love at a sold out Rod Laver Arena show last night with everyone waiting to hear that voice in person.” The Herald Sun
“Moonshadow Magic” The Daily Telegraph
“Yusuf's back-to-back rendition of '70s hits Morning Has Broken, Wild World, Moonshadow, Father and Son and Peace Train was met with a standing ovation. Those five songs alone spelled out the legacy of a world-class musician" The West Australian
“Adoring fans journey back to the days of old-school Cat.” The Age
This 50th Anniversary Tour is going to be an unmissable night for fans.
