Cat Stevens To Tour NZ In June

Monday 26th April, 2010 8:38AM

Cat Stevens aka Yusuf Islam will be heading to NZ for the first time ever this June to play two shows.

Tue 29th June, Vector Arena - Auckland
Fri 2nd July, Westpac Arena, Christchurch.

Yusuf caused a stir in the late 70s when at the height of his popularity he converted to Islam and auctioned all his guitars away for charity and left his music career to devote himself to educational and philanthropic causes in the Muslim community.

Yusuf returned to music in the 1990s and released an album last year called Roadsinger.

Here's a couple of his classics.

"Wild World" (Live - 1971)

"Father and Son"(Original video)
