I've always liked his music. Great to see you are seeing him live. It is nice to see he is performing again. Didn't he stop for a while?

Is he back to using Cat Stevens as his name again. He converted to Islam changed his name to Jusuf Islam and stopped performing (in the late 70's) for nearly 30 years. His first album in 30 years was An Other Cup in 2006.

I thought he was going by the name Jusuf (no last name, like Cher).

His "Morning has Broken" song is one of my favorites. We sing it in church sometimes, which is kind of funny because he's converted to Islam.

He is going by the name of Yusuf yup. He will be singing his Cat Stevens songs in the concert though so I thought it may be more relavent/most people know him as Cat Stevens rather than Yusuf.

He was last in New Zealand 36 years ago. I am guessing this is the last time he did a world tour? Although we dont usually get the big stars in NZ :P

The best ever:

boy with a moon and star on his head

A gardener's daughter stopped me on my way, on the day I was to wed.
"It is you who I wish to share my body with", she said.
"We'll find a dry place under the sky with a flower for a bed.
And for my joy, I will give you a boy with a moon and star on his head."

Her silver hair flowed in the air, laying waves across the sun.
Her hands were like the white sands, and her eyes had diamonds on.
We left the road and headed up to the top of the Whisper Wood.
And we walked 'till we came to where the holy magnolia stood.

And there we laid cool in the shade singing songs and making love...
With the naked earth beneath us and the universe above.
The time was late, my wedding wouldn't wait; I was sad but I had to go.
So while she was asleep, I kissed her cheek for cheerio.

The wedding took place and people came from many miles around.
There was plenty merriment, cider and wine did abound.
But out of all that I recall, I remembered the girl I met.
'Cause she had given me something that my heart could not forget.

A year had passed and everything was just as it was a year before...
Until the gift that someone left, a basket by my door.
And in there lay the fairest little baby crying to be fed;
I got down on my knees and kissed the moon and star on his head.

As years went by the boy grew high and the village looked on in awe.
They'd never seen anything like the boy with the moon and star before.
And people would ride from far and wide just to seek the word he spread.
I'll tell you everything I've learned, and Love is all...he said.

I went to see him last year and it was amazing. You'll really enjoy it.

He didn't have a supporting act. He showed some scenes from his upcoming play and performed after that.
