Kate Bush announces return to stage, first concerts in 35 years

    Kate Bush will return to the stage for the first time in 35 years this summer when she plays a 15-night residency at London’s Eventim Apollo. Dubbed Before the Dawn, the show will run from August 26th to September 19th. Tickets will go on sale March 28th.

    The renowned singer-songwriter announced the news on her website, writing,  “I hope you will be able to join us and I look forward to seeing you there.”

    Bush has only toured once before, embarking on a six-week tour of Europe back in 1979. As she explained to the Guardian, “By the end, I felt a terrific need to retreat as a person, because I felt that my sexuality – which in a way I hadn’t really had a chance to explore myself – was being given to the world in a way which I found impersonal.” She also said the the tour “was absolutely exhausting.”
