PEACE TRAIN - The Cat Stevens Story - Australia and New Zealand Tour 2015

Peace Train The Cat Stevens Story

Starring DARREN COGGAN

 

Australia and New Zealand Tour 2015

 

A celebration of Love & Peace

 

Due to overwhelming demand, Darren Coggan will return for national encore performances of his critically acclaimed portrait of Cat Stevens in Peace Train The Cat Stevens Story, touring Australia and New Zealand from January – September 2015.

 

Since its debut performance at the Wagga Civic Theatre back in 2009, Darren Coggan’s Peace Train, has gone on to inspire many others, playing to standing ovations in the most prestigious venues in Australia including The Sydney Opera House.

 

Peace Train is a night of music and story-telling which will strike a chord deep inside the heart of anyone who longs for something more, a journey back in time, recreating the sights and sounds, seeking out the man in the music and telling the story behind the songs.

 

Cat Stevens defined a generation with songs that the whole world sang along with. These timeless songs including Moonshadow, Wild World, Peace Train, Where Do the Children Play, Father & Son, Morning Has Broken, and many more continue to unite the world, bringing people together in the name of love and peace.

 

“2015 is set to be our biggest year to date aboard the Peace Train. We start our year in Tamworth at the Country Music festival, move into Sydney’s State Theatre on Valentine’s Day for a Valentine’s Day celebration of love and peace and then roll out across the country through Tasmania, WA, Darwin, QLD, NSW, Vic and SA. This will be our third lap around Australia aboard the Peace Train and it’s been a wonderful journey,” said Darren Coggan.

Back in the 70s, Cat Stevens was the ultimate rock star. Talented, charismatic, with a seemingly endless succession of beautiful melodies streaming from his imagination, the international singing star had everything. He sold more than 60 million albums, earned enough money to last several lifetimes, and enjoyed all the trappings of fame. But he wanted more out of life. So at the height of his career he shocked the world by taking his last bow. The music stopped and Cat Stevens was no more.

 

Darren Coggan takes the audience on a ride of discovery, back through the joys and the sorrows, the triumphs and the pain, in a celebration of the life of one of the most inspiring and prolific singer songwriters of our time, Cat Stevens.

 

'The underlying theme of out show is that we all have the ability to make changes in our lives, should we not be content with who we are or where we are,” said Darren Coggan.

Darren Coggan has toured extensively with stage shows Grease – The Mega Musical, Happy Days – The Arena Mega Musical, and Shout – The Musical Of The Wild One. He has appeared regularly on TV, including several guest appearances on Channel 7's All Saints and currently is a presenter on Sydney Weekender. He has also been awarded two Golden Guitar awards at the CMAA Country Music Awards in 2001 and 2008.
