 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 New Zealand in 2010 for the first time ever, and the shows here and in Australia, had the critics raving:

  “…Wild World, Where Do the Children Play?, Moonshadow and Father and Son were delivered in heartfelt style and brought the audience to its feet for multiple encores.” The NZ Herald

“…it’s great to have him back…singing songs whose beauty is often their sheer simplicity…this was like catching up with an old friend.” Newshub

“Peace Train…struck a chord with everyone jammed into Vector Arena…picking up the pace to finish off a joyous night.” www.stuff.co.nz

 “….Yusuf played it as recorded, reminding all how rare are songs of such exquisite beauty. And how much we’ve missed them.” The Australian

 “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

 This 50th Anniversary Tour is going to be an unmissable night for fans.
