The Newton Theater presents Al Stewart & The Empty Pockets

originally published: May 5, 2024

(NEWTON, NJ) – The Newton Theater presents Al Stewart & The Empty Pockets on Saturday, August 10, 2024 at 8:00 p.m. The Scottish-born singer-songwriter has released nearly 20 introspective and lyrically powerful records. His biggest platinum hits, “Year Of The Cat” and “Time Passages,” were released in 1976 and 1978, respectively.

He had several other top 20 singles, including the aforementioned tracks as well as “On the Border” and “Song On The Radio”.

Following Al Stewart's 2019 US tour with his band The Empty Pockets, he spent most of 2020 and 2021 sidelined due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But in 2022, he returned in full force with a series of sold-out shows in the US and UK and even made his debut in Israel. On his current tour he will continue his journey with several shows in the United States. He will be playing his old favorites such as Year Of The Cat, Time Passages, On the Border and Modern Times, along with selections from his extensive catalogue.

In Al's own words: “I'm just a folk singer who's interested in history and wine and got lucky with some hit records! It's actually that simple. I've always been a big music fan and originally 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 I was in 1965. I still enjoy hearing the Zombies, Hendrix or They Might be Giants on the radio.”

Tickets are available for purchase on-line. The Newton Theater is located at 234 Spring Street in Newton, New Jersey.
