Cat Stevens Concerts, TV & Radio gigs and other important dates.

This is by no means anywhere near completion, it is a continual process as concerts are added  as they are discovered. The research for this page is on going, this information is taken from various music papers, biographies, liner notes and tour schedules. Which means you may find some discrepancies. For example, even though I have the tour dates for certain concert tours from various tour schedules,  the tours themselves were sometimes modified later in time, i.e. the Walker Brothers Tour schedule shows 25 concert dates were performed, when in fact there were only 24 performances. Also, the European leg of the Majikat Earth Tour schedule is taken from the 1976 Melody Maker Tour schedule, which posted the entire European tour dates/schedule at the beginning of the tour. You may notice according to this schedule, Cat was to perform Thessilonika after the Athens concert, but according to the David Evans Bio...The Athens concert was suppose to close the Concert. So only Cat and his people really know the tour schedule for certain.  This is the best recollection, we could come up with so far and by no means is this complete.                                        

A special thank you to George Brown/Linda Crafar/Bruce Lawrie and Jill Mallow for helping me compile this list of information.
