Having first found fame as a teenage heartthrob singer in 1960s England, and writing one of the most iconic love songs, The First Cut Is The Deepest, Cat Stevens gained worldwide acclaim for his intimate and affecting works. From 1970 to 1978 he recorded and released the albums that would establish him as a leading Singer-songwriter of his generation. His album, Tea for the Tillerman, from 1970, went gold in the U.S. with such songs as Wild World, Hard Headed Woman, Where Do the Children Play? and Father & Son. It was Teaser and the Firecat in 1971 that made him a megastar, with songs like Morning Has Broken, Peace Train and Moonshadow. Following a life changing event in 1977, Cat Stevens discovered Islam and dedicated much of his time to the advancement of education and humanitarian relief. In 2006 Yusuf returned to mainstream music with the album An Other Cup, which was followed in 2009 by Roadsinger. 2014 was another monumental year for Yusuf, as he released his fourteenth studio album Tell ‘Em I’m Gone and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
To celebrate his 50th Anniversary as an artist, Yusuf is inviting fans to join him for A Cat’s Attic, a night of songs, storytelling and goodwill. A portion of every ticket will benefit the most vulnerable through long term support and building sustainable futures for orphans, children and families. Through Small Kindness, Yusuf's UK founded charity, donations will be made to both UNICEF and International Rescue Committee to help children affected by the current refugee crisis.
