Al Stewart to Perform at Stiefel Theatre

SALINA – The Stiefel Theatre for the Performing Arts has added another show to their upcoming lineup.

Al Stewart and The Empty Pockets will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 2. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, April 6.

Year Of The Cat – A Classic Album Live! – Al Stewart and a full backing band, The Empty Pockets, recreate the iconic platinum album “Year Of The Cat” from start to finish, plus a bonus set of the many hits from his other albums including the platinum-selling “Time Passages.” This show sold out two days at London’s Royal Albert Hall and is selling out theaters across North America.

Al Stewart came to stardom as part of the legendary British folk revival in the sixties and seventies and developed the combination of folk-rock songs with delicately woven tales of the great characters and events from history. Stewart has 19 studio albums between “Bedsitter Images” in 1967 and “Sparks of Ancient Light” in 2008, plus the live album “Uncorked” with Dave Nachmanoff in 2009.

Al continues to tour extensively around the U.S. and Europe. He is perhaps best known for his hits ‘Year of the Cat” from the Platinum album of the same name and the Platinum follow up album “Time Passages.” But his career spans four decades as a key figure in British music. He played at the first ever Glastonbury Festival in 1970, worked with Yoko Ono pre-Lennon and shared a London apartment with a young Paul Simon.

Tickets for this show, which start at $34, can be purchased through Ticketmaster.com, by phone at 785-827-1998, the Stiefel Theatre Box Office, 151 S. Santa Fe, and StiefelTheatre.org.
