Cat Stevens story heads out on UK tour
The internationally acclaimed Cat Stevens experience Peace Train is to receive its UK premiere in a nationwide tour. In an evening of musical storytelling featuring a full live band, audiences will be treated to a full concert of Cat Stevens’ hits, revealing the man in the music and the real stories behind the classic songs.
Peace Train – The Cat Stevens Story began in 2010 for a sold-out concert at The Sydney Opera House, and was followed by national tours throughout 2012, 2013 & 2014, playing every major theatre in Australia. Considered to be one of the most important artists in the history of music, Cat Stevens began his musical career in the 60s and went on to sell more over 60 million albums worldwide.
In Peace Train – The Cat Stevens Story, audiences can re-live 23 hits from the seldom-seen icon, such as: Wild World, The First Cut is the Deepest, Father and Son, Remember The Days Of The Old School, Lady D’Arbanville, Sad Lisa and Peace Train.
Starring award-winning Australian musician Darren Coggan, Peace Train – The Cat Stevens Story will take audiences on the same journey of discovery and enlightenment traveled by Cat himself. One of Australia’s most exciting young artists, Coggan and his band’s performances in Peace Train – The Cat Stevens Story have met with critical acclaim in Australia.
“Coggan, better known as a Golden Guitar winning country singer, sounds amazingly like Stevens… Coggan’s affable persona, the intriguing story and the amazing catalogue of songs adds up to a winner.”
Troy Lennon, The Daily Telegraph (AUS)
