on August 20, 2013. Posted in Gigs, Peace Train

Cat Stevens. The name brings back a thousand memories – dark eyes, a winning voice and songs which the whole world sang along to.

Back in the 70s, Cat Stevens was the ultimate rock star. Talented, charismatic, with a seemingly endless succession of beautiful melodies streaming from his imagination, the international singing star had everything. He sold more than 60 million albums, earned enough money to last several lifetimes, and enjoyed all the trappings of fame.

But he wanted more out of life. So at the height of his career he shocked the world by taking his last bow. The music stopped and Cat Stevens was no more. Whatever became of the man who wrote Father and Son, Moonshadow and Where do the Children Play? Why did he turn his back on the world?

PEACE TRAIN: The Cat Stevens Story is a night of music and story-telling which will strike a chord deep inside the heart of anyone who longs for something more; A journey back in time, recreating the sights and sounds, seeking out the man in the music and telling the story behind the songs.
