Kate Bush sells out London concerts in 15 minutes

By Andrew Wilson,

On the comeback trail, having announced her first series of concerts in almost four decades, singer Kate Bush sold out all of her London shows in only 15 minutes.

According to BBC News, tickets for her 22 dates at London's Hammersmith Apollo went on sale at 9:30 GMT Friday morning and were completely sold out by 9:45.

BBC's Colin Paterson reported that tickets with a face value of £135 were already being offered on sale on secondary ticketing sites for more than £1000, which would be $1,660 in U.S. dollars.

Bush had originally announced 15 shows at the former Hammersmith Odeon, dubbed the Before The Dawn Tour, but quickly added an additional seven dates due to overwhelming pre-sale demand.

In 1978, at the age of 19, Bush topped the UK Singles Chart for four weeks with her debut single "Wuthering Heights," becoming the first woman to have a UK No. 1 with a self-written song.

Bush has written ten albums since but only toured once in 1979. She has made a few appearances here and there, and there has been speculation that a high standard of perfection and fear of flying is why the singer has not toured since.

Bush’s concerts are scheduled to take place from the end of August to October 1.
