True entertainment from Helen, 17/11/14
Excellent gig. Excellent musicians. My only criticism is White Wedding was not long enough! There is not enough security within the concert area though. The drunk people need controlling because they spoil it for others.

So so from Julia, 17/11/14
Expected much more, seems like the content was for mass produced fan base to make sure everyone got the humor (jokes were too obvious)

simply fab from jbevans, 17/11/14
best looking 59 year old ever !!!! He has lost nothing of his voice and charisma either and him and Steve Stevens are almost like Jagger and Richards, great combination of songs new and old and really old (from Generation X days)
Yusuf Islam / Cat Stevens

fantastic night from steve, 14/11/14
After waiting 40 years to see the man live what a thrill! Yusuf/Cat gave the most wonderful show and retained all the magic and power of his fantastic creative work and performing abilities while connecting with his audience in the most positive and relaxing way. Congratulations to Alun too and the band who were superb !!! ok now for a couple of negatives ...understandably it was clearly stated that photography and recording was not allowed...pity many members of the audience could not respect this ..causing the ushers much work whizzing about (as discreetly as poss) . Also why do people need to leave their seats as early as 10 minutes into the performance {presumably for a refill) ...all very distracting and unfair to the artist and fellow concert goers. (Rant over :-)) ) Looking forward to seeing cat outside of London next time !

What Happened with the Acoustics? from Nadine, 12/11/14
My partner and I have between us seen a number of artists at the Apollo Hammersmith /eventim and it is one of our most favoured venues. However we came to see Mr Sam Smith on 7th November and were bitterly disappointed with the quality of the sound. We were only standing in the stalls fairly close to the back, in front of the bar and it may have been our location with the circles being directly above us but even still, the sound reverberated in our chests in an annoying and not pleasant manner. It truly felt that the sound/mics/speakers had not been adjusted to Sams vocal which was such a shame as we were actually pleased when his set had come to the end and we left swiftly. We stayed because we hoped that it would be adjusted but it never was. We only hope that when we return in February for Jason Mrazs return to Hammersmith that it is so completely different.

Great music and funny too! from Bill, 11/11/14
Attended not knowing fully what to expect. Well put together show with a fair amount of throw back game music for those of us who were playing 30+ years ago. The filler group, Random Encounter, were a lot of fun. Rockin accordion, who knew?

Cat Stevens from Barans, 11/11/14
I had given up hope of ever seeing the great man live, but it was well worth all the travelling and lack of sleep! Spellbinding from start to finish. Three encores and then we did not want to leave! Pity I was not allowed to even get a quick snap on my phone though...(with no flash!) like I am going to sell that! I have my memories though...they cannot stop me storing those...yet! Curious to know what they are going to do with all the video they shot at the venue though.

Brilliant Yusuf! from Tim H, 11/11/14
Having been a fan of Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam for more years than I can remember it was a joy to at last finally see and hear him for real. A wonderful show, wonderful voice and very tight band behind him; playing a superb selection of old and new songs. Great too to see one of his oldest collaborators Alun Davies there too. The Venue was very plush and easy to reach via the tube network for me. Acoustics were great. I hope he returns here again one day soon. So my sincere thanks to everyone involved and of course particularly to Yusuf, without whom....

Brilliant from 2211dee, 11/11/14
Cat Stevens was absolutely brilliant. Didnt want it to finish. Was a big fan in the 70s and had every album. Wasnt sure what to expect but he was brilliant. Would def see him again.

Great opportunity to see a legendar... from Rob R, 10/11/14
This was a well presented set combining old, familiar favourites with his new album. Nicely staged set with moody, subtle lighting rather than a dramatic, spectacular light show. It was a very laid back performance, which was well appreciated by the audience and I think deserved another encore song. If I have any criticism of the set it is that all of the new material was bunched together at the beginning of the 2nd half. I think it would have been better to have input some of this into the middle of the 1st half. I think some were disappointed about the duration of the new material in one lump and concerned that some of the favourites which he started with would be sacrificed. It was a shame that his new album wasnt released a little earlier to get a chance to familiarise oneself with his new material before the show. It wont stand the test of time of his classics, but is nevertheless very listenable. Yusuf/Cat Stevens - Thanks for the opportunity to see you perform some old favourites.

Amazing concert, amazing memories from RL, 10/11/14
Great concert, full of memories and amazing songs of all times. I think the timing was right and that it was punctual. The inclination of the scenario, however, is not the best. But, in general, it was pretty good.

Great performance Sam. from Jordan, 10/11/14
Couldnt of wished for more - Sam catered for all his fans and his voice couldnt of sounded any better, great quality, just like listening to a Cd at home.

Absolutely fantastic evening, in sp... from Dene Rosewarn, 10/11/14
Hi, I attended the Tuesday the 4th date with my wife and Daughter. We all really enjoyed the show which was a life long ambition fulfilled to see Cat/Yusef who in our opinion is one of the most iconic singer/songwriters alive today. We can not speak highly enough of the staff either, who came to my aid when I collapsed around 10 minutes into the second set after the interval. Sofie the medic was wonderful, as was the lady on the doors to the gents which had been closed due to a blockage. I am ok luckily, and I got to see the rest of the show after taking in some supplied water and rest on the exit steps. So thank you, and we will be back. All the best, Dene Rosewarn.

THE VOICE OF A GENERATION from Hassan Bachani, 10/11/14
The voice was beautifully preserved throughout and the melody was gorgeous to say the least!! Brilliant and highly professional performance. Loved it :D

Superb Show! from Matt B, 10/11/14
A truly splendid time had by all - those of us in the audience and on stage. From the solo start to the three standing ovation encores, this was the perfect show in every way. Beautiful set and excellent sound plus a magical performance from Yusuf and the band. Note perfect and full of humour also, it was a wonderful evening.

Fabulous! from Helen, 10/11/14
What a brilliant show, Yususf was in fantastic voice and performed a wide mix of old and new numbers. The stage set looked lovely and the lighting effects were great.

Ok-ish Event from Becky Lee, 10/11/14
I am slightly disappointed with the event we attended last week. Although Sam Smith was brilliant he played for less than an hour and the venue was extremely dirty with sticky floors (this was when we first arrived so clearly hadnt been cleaned from the event before) no toilet roll and very dirty toilets (again this venue needs more toilets as queueing for 40 mins atleast twice in the evening is just not acceptable) and as always not enough bar staff on which resulted in missing the support acts while trying to get a few drinks.
Pink Martini
30/10/14
As always a great show from Tony G, 07/11/14
This band is quite unique and can always be relied on to provide a great evenings entertainment. Its a pity the audience dont realise that chatting amongst themselves is not the done thing - but you cant blame Pink Martini for that.
Hans Zimmer

Fantastic Concert from Will, 05/11/14
A fabulous night watching the great Hans Zimmer. Great venue, well organised at the Apollo did not even have to queue to get in. We were lucky to get tickets well in advance and the theatre was full. The seats we had on the left hand side were great and we had a good view of the stage. The acoustics and music were brilliant. Cannot wait for the next concert by Hans Zimmer!
