Yusuf / Cat Stevens Announces Aussie Gigs

All aboard the Peace Train! Yusuf / Cat Stevens has booked a run of dates in Australia this fall as he continues celebrating the 50th anniversary of his debut album.

In addition to marking the golden anniversary of the release of Matthew and Son, A Cat’s Attic “Peace Train Tour” is also commemorating the legendary singer/songwriter’s first Top 10 hit, 1971’s “Peace Train.”

The song touched hearts and won fans for Yusuf / Stevens during the Vietnam War era and remains relevant today.
