Kate Bush Hints At A Return To Live Performance

    It’s been over 30 years since Kate Bush headed out on tour. That jaunt took place in 1979 and was dubbed the Tour of Life. Subsequent performances from the singer have become increasingly rare, but now comes news that Bush may be considering a return to the live arena, which she hinted at in an interview with Mojo in the U.K.


    “I’d like to think I’ll do some shows before I get too ancient—turn up with my Zimmer frame,” she said. “I don’t give up hope I’ll do some live work but I don’t quite know how it would fit with my life. Let’s just see, shall we?” The last time Bush appeared on stage was in 2002 at the Royal Festival Hall in London, where she played a part in staging Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb” with David Gilmour.


    This news is bound to excited longstanding Bush fans, who are already anticipating the reworkings of tracks from The Sensual World and The Red Shoes on Director’s Cut. That album, which has been gradually seeping out online via YouTube clips, is due on May 16, and some new material is rumored to be in the works shortly after.
