A Lot Of People Really Wanted To Hear "Eat The Music" Live, I Guess

“Last week the reclusive singer-songwriter Kate Bush announced that she would play 15 shows in London between Aug. 26 and Sept. 19 — her first extended run of performances since her single tour of Britain in 1979, at the start of her career. Fascination with Ms. Bush, and the prospect of seeing her — the 1979 shows were lavishly staged and choreographed, and her music since then has retained its inventiveness and mystique — was sufficient to crash her website almost instantly. She quickly added another seven shows at the 3,500-seat Eventim Apollo, extending the run to Oct. 1. Tickets, priced at £49 to £135 (about $81.50 to $225.50) — with hospitality packages that include premium seats and a picnic for £424.50 ($706) — went on sale on Friday at 9:30 a.m., London time, and within 15 minutes, the 77,000 seats for the 22 shows were sold out.”
