Kate Bush set for stage comeback

My heroine for the ages, the person who inspired me to write music at the age of 14 after I saw her on SNL, is playing her first set of gigs in 35 years tonight. You who are going had better heed the Queen, and leave the cells in your pockets!

Kate Bush is preparing for her first concert in 35 years, with fans eagerly waiting to find out what form her stage comeback will take.

Bush has not played live since her first and only tour ended at London’s Hammersmith Apollo in 1979.

One of Britain’s most influential and enigmatic artists, she is now returning to the same venue for 22 dates, which sold out within minutes in March.

She has asked fans not to take photos or record footage during the shows.

The 56-year-old star said on her website last week: “I very much want to have contact with you as an audience, not with iPhones, iPads or cameras.”

She admitted that it was “a lot to ask” and said that preparations for the new shows were “going very well indeed”.
