There was a celestial excitement in the Southern Hemisphere when the announcement of Yusuf touring Australia and New Zealand was made. When he last hit the road in Australia it was as the enigmatic Cat Stevens, a powerful and evocative singer-songwriter who brought the world Moonshadow, First Cut Is The Deepest, Wild World and so many other classic folk-pop hits. In 2010, thirty-six years later, he returned, reminding us that the voice that enchanted and inspired the dreams of a generation is still as present and timeless as ever.
An unforgettable ‘blue moon’ experience, Yusuf’s historic concerts were everything his audience hoped for. As one would expect from such an innovative and unpredictable artist it was not a tour in the usual sense, but an extenuation of his musical life journey.
Yusuf’s sell-out tour of Australia and New Zealand saw 85,000 adoring and awe-struck fans sitting and swaying, mesmerised by the fact that one of music’s greatest inspirations embraced them as his intimate friends.
