After Al Stewart’s US tour in 2019 with his band The Empty Pockets, he spent most of 2020 and 2021 sidelined due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But in 2022, he came back in full force with a string of sold-out shows in the United States and United Kingdom, and he even made his debut in Israel.  On his current tour, he’ll continue his trek with several shows throughout the United States. He will be playing his old favorites, like Year Of The Cat, Time Passages, On the Border, and Modern Times, along with selections from his deep catalog.

The Scottish-born singer-songwriter has released nearly 20 introspective and lyrically powerful records featuring brilliant backing musicians (Jimmy Page, Phil Collins, Richard Thompson, Peter White, etc.). His biggest platinum successes, “Year Of The Cat” and “Time Passages”, were released in 1976 & 1978, respectively. He’s had several top 20 singles, including the above-mentioned titles, as well as “On the Border” and “Song On The Radio”. 

In Al’s own words: “I'm just a folk singer interested in history and wine who got lucky with some hit records!  It's as simple as that, really. I was always a huge music fan and originally, I had wanted to be Brian Jones and then Bob Dylan, but those two jobs were already taken. And in many ways, I'm still pretty much the same troubadour that I was back in 1965. I still get a kick out of hearing the Zombies, Hendrix, or They Might be Giants on the radio.”
