Yusuf / Cat Stevens Announces NZ Dates for Peace Train 50th Anniversary Tour

TEG Dainty and Live Nation in association with Moonshadow Aus Pty announced today 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 two arena shows and one huge outdoor concert for this, only his second ever tour of NZ.

The tour will commence on Wednesday 13 December at Auckland’s Vector Arena and will travel to New Plymouth’s TSB Bowl of Brooklands on Saturday 16 December and finishes at Christchurch’s Horncastle Arena on Tuesday 19 December. 

Yusuf - Cat Stevens toured New Zealand in 2010 for the first time ever, and the shows 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

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