British-born Cat Stevens to begin ‘Peace Train…Late Again’ tour over six cities in the US in December 2014.
After a hiatus from his music career since 1976, Cat Stevens is ready to hit the road again. The iconic 60s and 70s musician will perform over a series of dates in December 2014 in the US for the first time in 38 years. Stevens put his music career on hold when he converted to Islam in 1977, taking the name Yusuf Islam.
Stevens was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2014. The 66-year-old has had several hits over the 1960s and 1970s, including Wild World, Morning Has Broken and Peace Train.
The British-born singer now lives in Dubai and has been reported to say that he has been “gradually reconnecting with his music career in the US.” Stevens is also releasing a blues album on October 27, 2014, called Tell ‘Em I’m Gone. Produced by Rick Rubin, the album is going to be his first in five years.
The ‘Peace Train…Late Again’ tour starting December 1, 2014, will cover Boston, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago and the Canadian city of Toronto. In addition, another series of six concerts is scheduled in Europe.
