Kate Bush

The influential (and amazing) Kate Bush is about to begin a very rare and in-demand series of live concerts at London's Hammersmith Apollo. Are you one of the lucky ones with a ticket? If so, make sure you read this update from Kate:

Hallo,
Many thanks to everyone who sent such lovely wishes for my birthday. I had a wonderful day.
We're all very excited about the upcoming shows and are working very hard in preparation. It's going very well indeed.
I have a request for all of you who are coming to the shows :
We have purposefully chosen an intimate theatre setting rather than a large venue or stadium. It would mean a great deal to me if you would please refrain from taking photos or filming during the shows. 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.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
Respectfully yours,
Kate.
Happy Birthday, Kate!

The first show is August 26th. All sold out dates are listed below....

Am I allowed to throw water at her? It's for ALS.

Get over yourself Kate!

Tell you what Kate, you give me the opportunity to refrain from said photos by playing NYC and I give you my word I shall be compliant

Shut up, 11:32. You should be allowed at shows.

concerts nowadays are just for recording purposes. no one in the crowd actually cares about the music.

Kudos to her. Too many idiots have to videotape a show with their crappy phone and be distracting to everyone that just wants to watch and listen.

Was a great show! Very inspiring, challenging and uplifting!
Will make you a better artist if you are one:-)
Williamsburg Brookyn native Omar Hakim on Drums rocked this show and was the backbone! Also from Brooklyn,Mino Cinelu
gave it all...amazing performance by Kate Bush!
This raises the bar for all of us-let's get to work
And make this the level of all our shows!
And girls...we now get to keep our clothes on!
...but only if u want to:-)
