If you want to sing out, sing out

This weekend Dale and I went to go see Cat Stevens! A while ago he changed his name to Yusuf Islam and recently changed his name to only Yusuf, but he's still Cat Stevens to me! It was the opening night of his first tour in over 30 years and he did not disappoint! He doesn't have his long curly hair anymore but he can still sing! He even did a preview of a Musical he is writing based on his songs (like ABBA and Mamma Mia). Someone else in the audience posted a video of the musical preview and you can see it here:

The concert was in Hovet in the Globe Complex in Stockholm. Apparently Cat Stevens' Mother was Swedish and he lived in Sweden for about a year when he was 8 or so and saw Elvis in the same Complex in Stockholm and that was one of the main reasons he decided to pursue a musical career.
 Anyway, the venue was packed and we enjoyed a great show. He played a full array of his catalog and we enjoyed singing along to the classics and listening to the new songs. Here's a picture of Dale and me, all smiles after a fun night relaxing and listening to good music!
The building on the right, Hovet, is where we were and on the left is the Globe. Everyone likes to talk about the Globe so I suppose it's a landmark of sorts. There are concerts, sports events, etc. held inside the Globe and outside is an elevator that travels from one side up and over the top to the bottom of the other side which is a kind of unique construction.

Hope you are able to find some time to relax and enjoy some music!
Love Always,
