But (sing with us) ooh, baby, baby it's a wild world. Cat Stevens snuck back into pop music in 2006, releasing is first secular record since the '70s, and now he's taking his acoustic vibes on the road. Tell your mom to stop moaning about how she just doesn't get new music; Cat Stevens has returned. If you live in Europe, that is.

Fresh off his London performance in May at an Island Records 50th Anniversary gig, Mr. Islam has booked four gigs this season. Here are the dates:

15 - Dublin, Ireland @ The O2
23 - Birmingham, England @ The National Indoor Arena

5 - Liverpool, England @ Echo Arena
8 - London, England @ Royal Albert Hall
