"....I've been smiling lately...."


After nearly three and a half decades, one of the great figures of popular music played in Melbourne last night.

Yusuf Islam, formerly known as Cat Stevens played a brilliant two hour set which had the audience in mixed feelings of joy and love. Warm and sincere is a good way to describe the evening.

A couple of new tracks sprinkled among a marvelous playlist of great memories gave the crowd much to appreciate.

As described in a previous post, one had to be alert to get the camera past the metal-detecting folk at the gate. Success (if you know how).

Here are a couple of shots from the night.

Should he return to your town - get a ticket. Go see him. Revel in a rare, delightful experience. You will not be disappointed to board this Peace Train.

Welcome back Yusuf/Cat.

Stay safe.
