AL STEWART & The Empty Pockets
Year of the Cat Anniversary Tour
SATURDAY · FEBRUARY 17, 2018 · 8pm
On the 40th anniversary of his hit Year of the Cat, Al Stewart and The Empty Pockets are geared up to bring you a rare evening of distinctive Folk-Rock music from the late ’60s.
By the time he was 22 years old, Stewart had met The Beatles and played John Lennon’s guitar, opened for the Rolling Stones, shared an apartment with Simon & Garfunkel, recorded with Jimmy Page, spent a year playing guitar for Yoko Ono and co-producing her Film No. Four, and put a young Cat Stevens on stage at Les Cousins where he was master of ceremonies.
He’s best known for his No. 1 hit Year Of The Cat from the Platinum album of the same name, and his follow up album, Time Passages, which also went Platinum. Al Stewart continues to tour throughout the world, providing his fans with the music and personality that they have come to love so well.
Quirky and charismatic, The Empty Pockets deliver brash Rock ‘n Roll music with unrelenting hooks, soaring vocals, honest lyrics and carefully crafted song writing.
