Sitting high atop my most revered musical influences, the divine Kate Bush gave her first live performance in 35 years on Tuesday at London’s Eventim Apollo Theatre: the irony not lost as it was this same theatre – then named the Odeon Hammersmith – where she gave her last show back in May 1979; probably shortly after I first discovered her with thanks to Margo. Gosh, remember Wuthering Heights?!
She remains, in a word, awesome. A noble maven blessed with talent as a songwriter, poet, philosopher, trend-setter, artiste, and vocalist.
Welcome back Kate!
…. time to go play The Man With The Child In His Eyes again.
