Peace Train, the Cat Stevens Story is at Cambridge Corn Exchange on Thursday September 7 and will be a night of music and story-telling.

He was born in 1948 as Steven Demetre Georgiou. After changing his name to Cat Stevens in the 70s Cat Stevens sold more than 60 million albums, earned enough money to last several lifetimes, and enjoyed all the trappings of fame.

But at the height of his career in 1977, he changed his name to Yusuf Islam and in 1979 auctioned his guitars for charity.

He didn’t start making records again until 2006. Why did the man who wrote Father and Son, Moon Shadow and Where do the Children Play? turn his back on the music world for so long?

Hear 23 hits played sung by Australian singer, Darren Coggan and the band. 7.30pm. Tickets £35.25 or £26.25 from 01223 357851 or tickets@cambridgelivetrust.co.uk or www.cornex.co.uk.
