Yusuf, the iconic rocker also known by Cat Stevens, has announced a fall tour.
For just under a month, the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer will hit the road for A Cat’s Attic, a limited run of stripped-down shows that coincides with the 50th anniversary of his 1966 debut single “I Love My Dog.” The brief trek will feature his first public shows in New York City since 1976. It launches in Toronto Sept. 12, running through Oct. 7 with stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington D.C. Yusuf will also play New York City’s Global Citizens Festival Sept. 24.
He last released 2014’s Tell ‘Em I’m Gone, his third record under new moniker Yusuf. He debuted new single “You Are Not Alone” in June as part of his fundraising campaign for child refugees and performed the song at a charity concert in London the same month, marking his first live set in more than a year.
A portion of all ticket proceeds for A Cat’s Attic will benefit Yusuf’s U.K. charity Small Kindness, as well as UNICEF and International Rescue Committee. See tour dates below.
