Comeback Queen

Comeback Queen

It’s the morning after the night Kate Bush gave her first stage performance in over 35 years. It was worth the wait

Kate Bush, the limelight-shy legend who made the leotard mainstream is made her comeback this week. Shunning mega-stadiums in favour of a 22 show tour at the EventIM Apollo in Hammersmith, her Before the Dawn tour promises to be an intimate affair. 

The Wuthering Heights singer had even asked her fans to refrain from taking selfies or recording during her performances, saying; “I very much want to have contact with you as an audience, not with iPhones, iPads or cameras. I know it's a lot to ask but it would allow us to all share in the experience together.”

Tickets for the sell-out gigs are like gold-dust, so prepare for magical theatrics, lasers and an other-worldly attitude – we’d expect nothing less from Babooshka herself.
