The rock star, the convert, the recluse, the humanitarian, the voice of a generation.

The critically acclaimed Australian show with a string of sold out performances to it’s name, including 7 nights at the World Famous Sydney Opera House, is touring the UK for the first time.

Cat Stevens. The name brings back a thousand memories - dark eyes, a winning voice and songs which the whole world sang along to. Back in the 70s, Cat Stevens was the ultimate rock star. Talented, charismatic, with a seemingly endless succession of beautiful melodies streaming from his imagination, the international singing star had everything. He sold more than 60 million albums, earned enough money to last several lifetimes, and enjoyed all the trappings of fame.

PEACE TRAIN tells Cat Stevens’ fascinating life story a man who always longed for something more; A journey back in time, recreating the sights and sounds, seeking out the man in the music and telling the story behind the songs.

Then, of course, there is the music. Hear twenty-three hits sung with remarkable authenticity by one of Australia’s most exciting young artists, backed by a high-energy band. From Father & Son, to Moonshadow, Wild World, Where Do The Children Play and Peace Train, Darren Coggan traces the path of a man who never stopped wondering about how to make the world a better place.

PEACE TRAIN – the Cat Stevens Story – has had audiences on their feet, cheering for more at every stop.
