Last but not least,we thought this would be some interesting news to know that,”Cat Stevens” has announced his first tour since 1976.Yusuf Islam, formerly known as Cat Stevens, says this will be his first full tour in 33 years.He is set to play material old and new at the dates,which kick off in Dublin on November 15. A gig in London, at the Royal Albert Hall, has also been announced.He played a show of largely cat stevens songs in London back in May to celebrate the 50th birthday of his label Island Records.”Cat Stevens” which I still prefer to call him will also play material from his new musical,called ‘Moonshadow’,at the gigs.No signs of any dates here in the US,so until then I guess we got our old “Cat Stevens” albums to listen to.

Stay tuned as we release a special Album & Tour announcement very soon.We figured the news needed an article all by its’self.
