Kate Bush announces first live shows since 1979

By Daniel S Levine,

British singer Kate Bush has announced that she will perform live before an audience for the first time since her 1979 tour when she was only 20. Now 55, the singer has decided that now’s the time to perform for her U.K. fans.

The “Wuthering Heights” singer announced 15 shows at the Hammersmith Apollo in London on her official site. She’s dubbed the shows Before the Dawn and they are scheduled for August and September.

The first four dates are scheduled for Aug. 26, 27, 29 and 30. Remaining shows are scheduled for between Sept. 2 and Sept. 19. Tickets will go on sale Friday, March 28.

According to the BBC, Bush had tried tour before, back in 1979 and paired her music with poetry and magic. However, the experience was a real toll on her physically and emotionally and she decided to never tour again. That tour concluded at the Hammersmith Odeon, which is now the Hammersmith Apollo.

Bush never did stop recording though and Queen Elizabeth II presented her with a CBE in 2013. Her latest album is 2011’s 50 Words For Snow.
