Kate Bushes Announces First Tour in 35 Years
Kate Bush Tour
British songstress Kate Bush broke Twitter and her website today when she announced that she’ll play a short residency at London’s Eventim Apollo. It’s her first tour in—wait for it—35 years, kicking off on August 26 and running to September 19. This is a rare event, as Bush has rarely been seen on stage since 1979, when an accident killed her lighting director, 21-year-old Bill Duffield, while she was on tour (the only concert tour of her career). She also has a severe fear of flying. Tickets for the residency go on sale Friday, March 28, and so far, searches for tickets to Bush’s upcoming shows have outranked those for superstars like Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Katy Perry. You go, Kate. Will she add even more dates to this residency, perhaps a longer tour? Stay tuned to find out.
Kate Bush is known for an eclectic music style and idiosyncratic vocal style. Her debut single, “Wuthering Heights”, topped the UK Singles Charts for four weeks in 1978, and it’s been nothing but roses since. She’s released ten albums, three of which have hit the top of the UK charts, and she’s has 25 Top 40 singles in the UK. In 2013, Bush was appointed Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II for her contributions to music.
