Yusuf Islam plays Gibson acoustic guitar at Royal Albert Hall
Yusuf Islam played a Gibson acoustic guitar for most of his recent gig at the Royal Albert Hall.
According to the guitar manufacturer, the music legend gave a "triumphant" and "spellbinding" performance at the packed London venue.
His setlist included songs such as Morning Has Broken and The First Cut is the Deepest, as well as his enduring classic Father and Son.
Yusuf, formerly known as Cat Stevens, also performed a number of tracks from his more recent albums, such as An Other Cup and Roadsinger.
He has been receiving rave reviews since returning to the stage after a 30-year hiatus.
The Liverpool Daily Post said: "For a man who has been away from the stage for three decades, he seems remarkably at home on it."
Indeed, he was praised for making the 10,000-seat Liverpool Echo Arena feel intimate and relaxed, as if he was performing at a community centre.Posted on 11 Dec 2009 12:08 to category : Instruments News
