35 years waiting was more than wort... from Jens-A Sorensen, 08/09/14
We were 3 Danish fans from Copenhagen who got 3 vip fan tickets March 26 for the Sep 2 show of Kate Bush. Our expectations for Kate Bush were like 3 11 year olds before Christmas Eve, and we we in awe of the visual show, the sound was impeccable and KTs voice was bigger, more powerful and more serene than ever heard on her studioalbuma. She loved the response from the audience. And gave us a toching experience that we will never forget

Fantastiskt! Oförglömligt! from Peter, 08/09/14
Jag har väntat på att se Kate Bush hela mitt liv! Att få se henne live var helt fantastiskt. Trodde nästan hon var en sagofigur... Att hon spelade på Eventim Apollo var helt perfekt. Vilken arena! Tack för att ni skapade det här tillsammans!!!!

Great! from Bushfan, 08/09/14
I managed to get a return ticket for last week (at face value) on the afternoon of the show so I was extremely delighted. I was very excited in anticipation of what was come. Even though I was there on my own I did feel as if the audience were as one so I did not feel lonely. I am the same age as Kate and have been a big fan since Wuthering Heights. During the show it was a great plus that no one was using any devises to record/take pictures so waving arms holding i phones aloft was not an issue! The gig started and we were off. It was all beautiful and by the time the first section was over and we had the screen showing the clip of a man notifying the coastguard that a boat had gone down at sea I was by now mesmerized and I felt really in the zone . Unfortunately everything suddenly stopped and the lights came up with an announcement that there were technical issues and hopefully they would be sorted soon. After about half an hour we got an announcement to say the show was going to restart. Hooray!! I couldnt believe it when the 2 seats right next to me (middle of the stalls) remained empty! I guess they just left - why?? The Ninth Wave was fabulous and my favourite part of the show. I do wish there had been no break before that section but it was one of those things that happen when its live. After the interval we had the third act. I enjoyed the staging, mood and musicianship but some of the time I couldnt follow the story. However, I was still enthralled by the performances. About half way through the third act the man next to me started looking at his phone (and after having talked with him during the interval I think he was hoping for more of the hits so I think he was a bit bored - sadly). During the encore he took a couple of pics - annoying!. All in all, it was 3 hours of brilliant performances and Kates voice is incredible live. Even better live than on recordings. She definitely has the voice and the presence of a great artist and icon. Thanks Kate, it was worth it!! xx

Fabulous! from Terry Best, 08/09/14
We made the long journey from Canada to see Kate perform, and the show was even better than we could have hoped. I have been a huge fan since I was a teenager so the expectation level for me was very high indeed. The show was very theatrical using her music primarily from Hounds Of Love and Arial. The music, stage and performers all blended perfectly as the story moved from song to song. I only wish I had was that the encore has lasted longer. I would have liked to hear a couple songs from The Dreaming and Never Forever. But if I had it my way, the show would never have ended. Please Kate dont let this be the last time we get to see you and. Please dont leave me Suspended In Gaffa.:)

Best Gig of my life. from Massimo, 08/09/14
I was really excited and happy to attend the concert of her that I consider an absolute genius in the panorama of contemporary pop music, but I was not totally prepared for what I witnessed last Friday and not just because I appreciate the enormous talent of this artist out of the ordinary. I was completely blown away by the size of the show is absolutely perfect in every prospectus, musical, stage, theater, etc. It would be too complicated to describe all the nuances of emotions that the three-hour show sent to me, I can only say that her voice remains the most interesting of all, and that the second part in particular The Ninth Wave is even more the figure of a true masterpiece of the whole Rock music of the last fifty years. Welcome back Kate.

Not just a concert, but an experien... from Wim Clynhens, 08/09/14
Upon entering the Eventim Apollo - my first time there - I was struck at how intimate it is. Even sitting at the back row in the stalls, the stage felt very close by and we had a great view over the entire stage. I still couldnt believe that within a few minutes, Kate Bush would be standing on that stage. Anyone disappointed that Kate didnt put on a Greatest Hits-jukeboxshow probably had no idea what kind of artist she is. If that would have been what she did after 35 years away from the stage, now thàt would have been a disappointment. Instead: we were transported into her unique world with a show that was just as much theatre as it was concert. After a conventional opening where Kate performed five songs in front of her terrific live-band (Running Up That Hill beging a first highlight) the stage literally was taken by a storm and the audience swept into The Ninth Wave, the song cycle that makes up the second half of the Hounds of Love-album. With film, projections, lights, a helicopter searchlight sweeping over the audience and Fish People at one point carrying Kate off the stage, we were witness to the dreams and nightmares of a woman drowning in the ocean. After a 20 minute break, A Sky of Honey of her 2005 album Aerial made up the second half of the show. This cycle of songs tells about a beautiful day, the changing of light and color, the songs of birds, a painter - played by her son Albert - trying to capture it in his art. Again, the beautiful sets and lighting enhanced the great music and it all ended with a climax that had the audience gasping. then Kate returned to the stage alone, sitting at the piano for an emotional Among Angels, followed by a roaring Cloudbusting that had the audience go wild. And then it was over, three hours after at all began. I could go on but will leave it at this: This was a show and a night to remember. Forever.

Kate Bush from Phil Wise, 08/09/14
Absolutely Sublime! Despite a few technical difficulties, the show was even more than I expected, with Kate on top form, yet a little overwhelmed with the response of the audience. Would go again if I got the chance!

The greatest experience from Annie, 08/09/14
Went to see Kate on 3rd September. What a show. Kate can do wrong in my eyes anyway, but even if you werent a big fan it was a spectacle to behold. Her voice is just beautiful and the rest of the gang were awesome. We had seats in circle 8 in the front row and the view was great. Lovely theatre.

Simply Stunning! from Giverney, 08/09/14
I still feel speechless almost a week after seeing this show. Kate the Great - I never thought this day would ever come. I flew down from Inverness and absolutely loved every moment from start to finish. I couldnt help myself from bursting into tears as soon as she appeared. And from then on she had me spellbound. I had read the fantastic reviews but none could compare to actually being there in the moment. She sounded so much better than her recordings, if thats at all possible! I was literally on the edge of my seat - I had to keep pinching myself. I couldnt believe I was seeing Kate Bush! I havent been able to think about anything else since I come home. I havent even been able to tell my husband or friends about all the fabulous moments of the show as I just cant find the words. Sorry, I know Im rambling but I still feel a bit spaced out! At the age of 58 and having been to many shows in my life I can honestly say this was Very Special and the Best Show I have ever seen. I wish I could have gone to another show as Im sure I missed a lot of what was going on behind her, as I never took my eyes off her! Lots of people around me were crying again when she sang Among Angels which was again much better than the cd. I felt touched and so full of emotion. Its clear that only Kate can make grown men cry! I feel extremely lucky to have been a part of history.

A dream come true from J.K., 08/09/14
I literally waited 35 years to see Kate Bush live and I cant think of a better place than Hammersmith Apollo for it to finally happen. The atmosphere was just tremendous and so intimate. The loudest middle aged crowd Ive ever seen. There was a technical glitch that caused an extra 30 minute break in the programme but nobody seemed to mind. I didnt. I had the best time in my life.

Great show from KB Addict, 08/09/14
Kate really outdid herself. Great band, super voice and amazing show performed. Personally. Since I like Kates other work better I would have preferred a simpler (no) show and just listen to her older work and let my imagination do the work. Still best show ever.
