The First Cat is the Deepest

We’ve had a few music legends make their way here in recent times, but they don’t come much bigger in the biz than British singer-songwriter legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Yusuf (a.k.a. Cat Stevens), who graces Horncastle Arena this month. He’s on the worldwide Peace Train Tour, which commemorates the 50th (!) anniversary of his first major hit single and debut album Matthew & Son, released in 1967. The folk-rock icon is making only his second trip to New Zealand, having last visited with two sold-out arena shows in 2010. First rising to prominence in the mid-60s and then super-stardom in the 70s, the spiritual singer (/charity worker/peace activist) has a back catalogue that includes some of the most beloved songs ever; think ‘Matthew and Son’, ‘Here Comes My Baby’, ‘The First Cut Is The Deepest’, ‘Wild World’, ‘Where Do the Children Play?’, ‘Father & Son’, ‘Morning Has Broken, ‘Peace Train’, ‘Moonshadow’… look, essentially we’re getting a gig from one of the greats here, and you definitely don’t want to miss out! There’s every chance this will sell out, so stop reading this sentence and go book yourself an in-the-flesh experience with a musical icon.
