Cat Stevens Cancels Beacon Theater Gig

Cat Stevens cancelsNew York gig

Cat Stevens cancelsNew York gig

Unfortunately I will not be performing in NYC this time around but I am looking forward to playing for fans in Philadelphia on December 4 and hope to return to NYC at a future date. My fans will understand and I thank them for informing me about the extortionate tickets prices already being listed on some websites. I have been a longtime supporter of paperless tickets to my shows worldwide and avoiding scalpers. Unfortunately NY has a state law that requires all tickets sold for shows in NYC to be paper, enabling them to be bought and sold at inflated prices. I’m sorry about not being able to now play in NYC but hope to find an opportunity that aligns with my support of this issue in the near future, God willing. Looks like the Peace Train is going to arrive at New York a little bit later than expected.” – Yusuf

So that’s it pop pickers, time to look at Philadelphia and/or  Boston and figure out how to get there.

I am thinking Philly myself, it is in the center of town and makes more sense than the Sunday Boston gig. I am really surprised but I wonder if there were worries about security for the ticketless shows. On the other hand, who would want to harm Cat Stevens? None of it makes any sense and I am shocked there would be no ticketless shows in the area. Bbut anyway, first I am going to buy a tix to Philadelphia and then I am going to worry about it…

This really sucks but there you go.
