A representative for Kate Bush this morning is shooting down a widely publicized anecdote in The New Yorker that alleges the Coachella festival turned down a chance to host the stage-shy singer’s first-ever U.S. concert because “no one is going to understand it.”
The New Yorker today published a fascinating profile of Coachella mastermind Paul Tollett that gets into the nuts and bolts of how the massive festival is operated.

It took 35 years for Kate Bush to follow up her lone tour, but she returned to the stage in London last night for her first full performance since May 14, 1979, performing a highly theatrical, 22-song set that featured nearly all of her classic LP Hounds of Love, the second side of Aerial and a few other selections.
With Kate Bush set to take the stage this week in London for her first full concerts in 35 years, the BBC on Friday night aired an hour-long documentary “The Kate Bush Story: Running Up That Hill,” featuring archival footage, plus new interviews with fans including John Lydon, Elton John and more.
With Kate Bush’s historic return to the concert stage now just a week away, the stage-shy singer this morning asked fans not to film or photograph her upcoming 22-date run of London performances, writing on her website, “I very much want to have contact with you as an audience.”
Kate Bush’s shocking return to the stage later this year will be even bigger than initially announced, with the singer 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.
