Yusuf Islam, popularly known as the legendary Cat Stevens, is bringing his Peace Train Tour to Radelaide this November and we cannot wait. Cat Steven’s famous soulful melodies will glide through the gardens of Botanic Park on Saturday the 25th of November. The tour commemorates the 50th anniversary since his first debut album ‘Mathew and Son’ released in 1967.
This will only be the third time Cat Stevens has visited Australia – his 2010 tour was the first time he’s visited us for 36 years. This British singer/songwriter started his musical career in the 60’s with top hits like ‘I Love My Dog’ and ‘Mathew and Son.’ Following on from this success he released his album: ‘Tea For The Tillerman’ in 1970 with that went gold in the US with songs such as ‘Wild World,’ ‘Wild World, Hard Headed Woman, Where Do the Children Play? and Father & Son.’ However, it was the famous album: ‘Teaser and the Fire cat’ featuring classics like ‘Morning Has Broken,’ ‘Peace Train’ and ‘Moonshadow,’ that was the driving force behind his super stardom.
In 1977 Cat Stevens embraced Islam, changing his name to Yusuf Islam and taking a break from his world-wind musical career to start a family and submerge himself in charity work and education. Thankfully, he came back to music in 2006, and after his 14th studio album was released he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.
