Cat Stevens cancels NYC concert due to scalpers


Global News

LOS ANGELES – Cat Stevens is cancelling his New York performance just weeks after announcing a six-city tour starting in Toronto on Dec. 1.

Stevens said on his Facebook page Wednesday that he would not keep the New York engagement because its requirement for paper tickets has led to exorbitant resale prices.

Stevens, also known as Yusuf, the name he claimed after converting to Islam, said earlier this month that he planned a concert tour behind the blues album he’s releasing on Oct. 27.

The concerts are his first series of shows in North America since 1976.

Stevens says he is a longtime supporter of paperless tickets “and avoiding scalpers,” and hopes to return to New York City in the future. He will instead perform in Philadelphia on Dec. 4.

Other cities on the Peace Train … Late Again tour include Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Industrialization, steam engines, coal, striking oil, combustion engines, plastics – environmental waste, greenhouse gasses, carbon emissions, fouled water….. Another “age” with a beginning and end.

Historically speaking, each great “age” heralds monumental change – radical departures from “business as usual”. Changing “age” rarely happened without considerable turmoil. Bronze Age copper mines in present day Jordan for instance, obviously not pleased when smelted iron obliterated centuries old bastions of wealth and power. Control was reassigned, fortunes dried up or shifted, fresh opportunities presented themselves – ultimately civilization advanced. Ages of man don’t politely roll over, respectfully making way for new…

Staycation Atlanta

IMG_3366We are so lucky in Georgia and Atlanta to have so many Parks and Trails! I found this one today and I am so glad I did. IMG_3307It is a beautiful day today, crisp and clear, the trail is a little over a mile. The scenery is great! IMG_3311Cute little bird houses…Lots of graffiti. IMG_3363Not tons, I guess the appropriate amount for train tunnels. IMG_3321It is pleasant and peaceful. IMG_3342There is a park at the end with many baseball fields. (or the beginning depending on where you start)IMG_3350This park is a the back of Mason Mill Park off of Clairmont Road. IMG_3365Let me know of a park I can visit near you. Happy Staycation!!!
