Kate Bush is Returning to the Stage

In what we can only presume is some sort of unlikely 35th anniversary celebration of the last time she embarked on a proper tour, Kate Bush left fans reeling today when she dropped the bombshell that, in August and September, she’ll be playing a series of 15 shows at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.

In a pleasant, politely-worded announcement on her official website, Bush described herself as “delighted” about her declaration on the upcoming performances, adding, “I hope you will be able to join us and I look forward to seeing you there.”

The “Before the Dawn” dates – that seems to be the name of the concert series, based on the fact that the phrase was hash-tagged along with the announcement on Twitter – are as follows:

AUGUST
Tuesday, 26th August
Wednesday, 27th August
Friday, 29th August
Saturday, 30th August

SEPTEMBER
Tuesday, 2nd September
Wednesday, 3rd September
Friday, 5th September
Saturday, 6th September
Tuesday, 9th September
Wednesday, 10th September
Friday, 12th September
Saturday, 13th September
Tuesday, 16th September
Wednesday, 17th September
Friday, 19th September

Since we know you’re wondering, tickets for the shows go on sale at 9:30 am GMT / 4:30 AM EST on March 28. And since we also know that you’re now doing the math and seeing how much of your personal effects you’re going to have to sell to afford the plane fare, lodging, and tickets to all 15 dates, we’ve created a playlist of classic Kate to serve as your soundtrack.
