Kate Bush

Kate Bush’s shocking return to the stage later this year will be even bigger than initially announced, with the singer — acknowledging “massive” ticket demand — yesterday adding seven more dates to her run of London shows that begin in late summer, meaning Bush’s first live dates in 35 years will now span a 22-performance run from Aug. 26 through Oct. 1.

The NME reports the new shows, in late September and early October (see full dates below), were added after a pre-sale allotment of tickets sold out in 30 minutes.

The general on-sale for all 22 shows is set for 9:30 a.m. London time Friday. Tickets are available through eventim.co.uk, www.gigsandtours.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk.

Bush famously stopped touring after a sole outing in 1979, a decision some believe was due to everything from a fear of flying to an overly controlling nature to the death of her lighting director during that 1979 outing. Since then, she has performed sporadically at a handful of charity events, and has turned up for duets at concerts with Peter Gabriel and David Gilmour.
