Later this year, Cat Stevens is touring in North America for the first time in 35 years. The dates were supposed to include a December show in New York...but that has since been canceled, because of SCALPERS.

In a Facebook post, he explained, quote, "I have been a longtime supporter of paperless tickets to my shows worldwide and avoiding scalpers. Unfortunately New York has a state law that requires all tickets sold for shows in NYC to be paper, enabling them to be bought and sold at inflated prices. I'm sorry."
