NEW YORK, NY -- The singer of Peace Train is blowing up his New York tour. Cat Stevens says has cancelled a show at the Beacon Theater out of frustration over the state's scalping laws.
Fans apparently informed Stevens of "extortionate" ticket prices on resale sites. He mentioned that in a statement online, which also said: "Unfortunately New York has a state law that requires all tickets sold for shows .... to be paper, enabling them to be bought and sold at inflated prices."
Stevens bumped-up his Boston show to now be in Beacon's place on December 7. He added a Philadelphia concert, too.
