TEG DAINTY and Live Nation in association with Moonshadow Aus Pty announced today that British singer-songwriting legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Yusuf / Cat Stevens will tour New Zealand in December. A Cat's Attic "Peace Train Tour" commemorates the 50th Anniversary of his first major hit single and debut album Matthew & Son released in 1967. Cat achieved early success in the mid 60s with "Matthew and Son", "Here Comes My Baby" and "The First Cut Is The Deepest". In 1968 the heavy workload of non-stop appearances and touring, the excesses of a pop-star lifestyle took its toll and Cat contracted TB. He was hospitalised for several months and began a significant process of inner reflection and meditation. During this time Stevens began to question aspects of his life and spirituality and underwent a profound musical transformation. From 1970 to 1978 he recorded and released the albums that would establish him as a leading singer-songwriter of his generation.
