Kate Bush does things according to her own schedule. When she released her beautiful, confounding album 50 Words For Snow in 2011, it was her first all-new studio effort in six years. But her absence from the studio was nothing compared to her absence from the stage. Bush last toured in 1979, the year she really became a star. We can speculate as to the reasons she’s stayed away ever since (Pitchfork points out that her lighting director Bill Duffield was killed in a 1979 accident during a show), but she’s finally decided to make a big return later this year in London. As Bush announces on her website, she’s going to play a series of shows that she’s calling Before The Dawn at London’s Hammersmith Apollo. This August and September, she’ll play the venue 15 times: August 26, 27, 29, and 30, and September 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 13, 16, 17, and 19. Get your tickets early; this is the sort of thing that people will fly across the world to see.
