Cat Stevens announces first U.S. tour since 1976
After a decades-long hiatus, Cat Stevens is making some stops in the U.S. on his upcoming tour that kicks off Nov. 4 in London.
Stevens last toured the U.S. in 1976 before converting to Islam and taking a break from music. During that time, he adopted the name Yusuf Islam and didn’t release another album until 2006 with An Other Cup, followed up by 2009’s Roadsinger. He last performed in the U.S. when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll of Fame in April at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, where he sang past hits including “Peace Train.”
The U.S. leg of Stevens’ tour begins in Boston on Dec. 4, and he’ll also make stops in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago. His latest album, Tell ‘Em I’m Gone, comes out Oct. 27.
