Kate Bush Playing London, But Will We get Her?

She's back

She’s back

Many many years ago I was in my Kew Gardens apartment getting dressed in my finest finery for the rare and glorious opportunity to interview Kate Bush. Bush had just released her fine indeed The Dreaming, and while she wasn’t playing live at the time, she was doing interviews until the inevitable happened with the extremely temperamental young woman and she didn’t like a question some interview threw out, stormed back to the UK, and I never got my interview.

Thirty years later and Kate, in her best Michael Jackson impression ever, is performing 22 nights at the Hammersmith Apollo right through September 2014. Her first concerts in an astounding 35 years and the entire shebang, every ticket, sold out in 15 minutes. Tickets are changing hands at incredible thousand pounds (figure $1500) a pop on the secondary market.

Having said all of that, I am not a huge fan. I just find her a little too quirky for my tastes and the only flat out masterpiece remains the first album, 1978’s The Kick Inside. Otherwise, she sounds a touch too pitchy and her songs need a lot of time and I am not always that keen on giving it. 2011’s 50 years of Snow was a very good album, sure, but when was the last time she listened to it?

I’ve never seen her on stage but apparently she was big on costume changes and production designs so all I will add at this time is I would really love to see her, if only to hear  “The Man With The Child In His Eyes” live in person… so will she play New York?

My bet is yes, if she has everything  up and running and a stage set up and  a band delievered, why not jump the pond.

So where’s the presale?
