TEG DAINTY and Live Nation in association with Moonshadow Aus Pty have announced that British singer-songwriting legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Yusuf / Cat Stevens will tour New Zealand in December. A Cat’s Attic “Peace Train Tour” commemorates the 50th Anniversary of his first major hit single and debut album Matthew & Son released in 1967.

 Last here in 2010 for two rapturously received and sold-out arena concerts, Yusuf / Cat Stevens returns to perform at Spark Arena on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 December, only his second ever tour of New Zealand.

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.

Cat achieved early success in the mid 60s with “Matthew and Son”, “Here Comes My Baby” and “The First Cut Is The Deepest”. From 1970 to 1978 he recorded and released the albums that would establish him as a leading singer-songwriter of his generation. His album, Tea for the Tillerman, from 1970, went multi-platinum in the U.S. and Australasia with such songs as “Wild World”, “Hard Headed Woman”, “Where Do the Children Play?” and “Father & Son”. It was Teaser and the Firecat in 1971 that made him a megastar, with songs like “Morning Has Broken”, “Peace Train” and “Moonshadow”. 

 Yusuf / Cat Stevens toured New Zealand in 2010 for the first time ever, and the shows had the critics raving:
