1967, it’s the era of angry young men and British writers, actors and singers are changing the way that society looks at youth. Hair gets longer, dresses get shorter, four young lads from Liverpool are leading the vanguard of a musical and cultural revolution, and in the summer of love, you can’t turn on a radio without hearing the hip sounds of a fresh new artist by the name of Cat Stevens.

Fifty years ago, 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 celebrates 50 years of Cat Stevens as he presents Peace Train ‘Remember The Days’ a tribute to Cat Stevens.

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. Hear twenty-five hits sung with remarkable authenticity by one of Australia’s most exciting artists. 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.

“Coggan sounds amazingly like Stevens. He has the timbre, the inflections and the feel of Cat’s music. The combination of Coggan’s affable persona, the intriguing story and the amazing catalogue of songs adds up to a winner.”
The Daily Telegraph

“From the opening chords of Moonshadow, Darren Coggan had an attentive audience of 50-somethings melting in his hands. As the show reached its crescendo the cheering grew louder and the crowd was left wanting more.”
Newcastle Herald

“Coggan has found a quality of voice which is so close to the original that you would think it is Cat Stevens himself. The commitment from the writer is not just to the music, but to the message. The result is an exciting concert and a dramatic narrative with a worthwhile theme.”
Canberra Times
