Absolutely fantastic ! from Dominique, 15/09/14
What an emotion ! I NEVER feel something like that, and I will NEVER feel such an emotional moment in the future... Ive attended some great concerts, mytical too, but one like that was so different... I was overwhelming by the charisma of Kate, and all the spectacle (its much more than a simply concert). Great organization too (I had an hospitality package), the pic-nic in the St Pauls church was absolutely delightfull ! I dream about the venue of Kate in my country, BELGIUM...

Phenomenal from Shaun, 15/09/14
What a privilege to see Kate Bush,the legend! She stole the audiences heart with her beautiful eyes and smile. Her voice is astounding. I knew this wouldnt be just a gig and was proved right. The show was a wonderful theatrical piece which drew you in and left you worn out with the emotions endured. The musicians and fellow performers were excellent. I cant believe that I have been in the presence of such amazing talent. The show of a lifetime!

Absolutely Brilliant from Shane Taylor, 13/09/14
Saw Kate Bush concert on 9th September. It was everything and more that I had read about. Her voice was brilliant and her concept for the concert was very brave. But nothing less than I expected from Kate Bush. Her son sang his song and the talent runs in the family. If I could get more tickets I would see it again. I had tickets that came with a meal provided in the church across the road. I had normal concert tickets, but the bank (Halifax) lost them for me. Another story. After that we could only get very expensive tickets, as said with a meal provided. We decided to pay the money just to see Kate Bush live. It was well worth it. I will add the meal organised by Eventim was very good. The food and drink was excellent. The staff working at the meal were excellent as well. This made for one of the best night of live music I have seen.

What a great show!!! from Tony Hazzard, 12/09/14
After 35 Years, Our Kate has returned to the stage. I always said to myself that if she ever decided to do one more show that I would find a way to see it. She may not have done any of her earlier work but the 9th Wave and Sky of Honey Concept suites that were preformed were pure magic. I brought my Girlfriend with me to the show and she wasnt a fan before the show but she is now that she has experienced it. There was a small delay in the show due to technical problems and it would have been nice to get an extra song or 2 in the encore but overall it was a lovely evening and worth the price. Glad I was able to travel all the way from Winnipeg Canada to see it.

once in a lifetime!! from Adrian, 11/09/14
although Kate didnt do it but WOW WOW WOW!!!! there are not enough superlatives to describe tonights experience, a once in a lifetime event worth every penny and then some!!! a truly epic encounter of the emotional kind, draining every ounce of emotion, riding the waves of love and devotion directed at the stage. It was a long wait, 35 years is just too long, but finally a dream has been granted!!!

Kate in Perfect Form from alexg, 11/09/14
The first half of the show simply blew me away it was fantastic ..the second half was slightly laboured .. and did not have the same pace / energy ..I would have preferred more of the first half ....less of others and more of Kate ...Still a great show ...glad i witnessed..

Beyond all expections from Lovehounduk, 11/09/14
After 35 years expectations for a mega show were high. Even though I thought if Kate is just singing with her piano that would be fantastic. What happened was totally unexpected and surpassed all of my expectations, hopes and dreams. Kates voice is amazing and so powerful. Hearing her sing live was emotional and the visuals on stage perfection. The whole 3 hours is pure Kate Bush. Never a dull moment during Ninth Wave I was so intensely engrossed it was fantastic. To see and hear Aerial performed live was just wonderful. Excellent show and way above and beyond my expections. I am still on Cloud 9 and why would I come down it looks like hell down there :-) The Apollo organisation was excellent too, great staff, friendly and helpful. I am so glad Kate asked for a no camera/phone show. It made it so much more enjoyable. First time in a long time.

Second Time Around Different Experi... from Trebu, 10/09/14
Wow what an incdredible feeling I had when I was home on Thursday 28. I was so happy and emtional touched and extreme tired!! Drained as they say. As the days passed I felt that I had sat in a train and that the event was so intense that before I could absorb what was going on it was over. I realised that if there was an oppertunity I had to go again,,by myself this time. This occasion came by wednesday september 3 as a ticket was sold through the Eventim for Friday Septmber 5. I hit the button and only than realised that i had to arrange transport and bed. I found the Euro train was 320 single....and easyjet 167 return. A bed was better and 30m from where I was before. So I asked for another day off and Friday I went through Schiphol to GatwicktrainLondon. It was 10 oclock. I walked, saw the gallery, got up in the Shard and checked in. Very relaxed. At five the 72 bus took me to the Eventim from Shephards Bush.. And with a sandwich from s*bway and a coke I sat down and watched the crowd coming in. So the concert was fantastic. Different angle, different people and a lot of recignition. I held my part of the deal not making photos until the last minute, when I decided to take a few snapshots. Sorry Kate but I want to keep my own experience with me in two pictures.

The most amazing event! from Fan who came from outside the UK..., 10/09/14
After 35 years away from the stage, Kate Bush is an brilliant performer combining excellent vocals with inspiring artistic creativity to bring us an emotionally charged, uplifting event. Beg, steal or borrow a ticket...

I couldnt take my eyes off her from Deb Clark, 10/09/14
What can I say. I have hoped to see her perform ever since I was 15 (now 51) Last night was by a million, the best night of my life!!! She was brilliant, cheeky, sexy, so so beautiful and her voice sent shivers all through my body!! The Ninth Wave I have felt the emotion when listening, but now I have this wonderful, emotional, sad visual that I will see every time I listen. That was my number one bucket list, seeing Kate perform. I would have loved it even if she sat at the piano and sung, but the stunning stage affects and Kate bringing her amazing songs to life in front of my eyes was fantastic. Thank you Kate. X

Dream come true! from TwinklyJules, 10/09/14
Last night I had the most amazing time finally seeing Kate sing live at Hammersmith. I was blown away ! her live vocals were completely spectacular, not a wobble or missed note! I also felt really privileged to see Bertie perform - what an amazing young talent !! I had been looking forward to this moment for so long ! I have been a lifelong fan of Kates since I was a teenager (Im now a 46 year old mum of two little boys) I have followed everything shes done and loved it all ! Its a cliche I know but I just feel like I know her after all this time she is the connection with my childhood/motherhood - all my experiences really are bound up with kate and her music at different stages. I took my sister for company last night - she loves kate too but perhaps not such a nerdy follower as I am! and yet as we left the Apollo she said - I just really felt like I wanted to give her a big hug - its like I know her! I think that sums it up - Kate does that to people. Thank you Kate - what an amazing gift to your fans!

Almost a week ago and I havent calm... from StripyJules, 09/09/14
I have always been a fan of Kate Bush and counted myself very lucky to have obtained tickets for one of her shows. I was very excited in the run up to the date but there was always that little worry: was I expecting too much? Would she and her voice be up to it, with a distance of 35 years since her last concert performances? Then she came on stage, a tiny person, doing a sort of slow boogie-conga line with her backing singers to the strains of Lily. Then she sang... I neednt have worried! Her voice was clear, powerful, warm and still had an amazing range. At the start of the gig she stood front and centre with her band and singers to her right and sang our socks off, helped by a weapons-grade percussion section and the finest, tightest band I have heard for a very long time (if ever). The lighting was spectacular for this and every other part of the show. As King of the Mountain came to a stunning climax: silence. Dark. A bullroarer... The Ninth Wave began and was genuinely scary, moving, funny and exciting by turns. There was a technical hitch on the night I went but nobody seemed to mind, the crowd chatted amongst themselves and was immediately immersed in the show when it began again. Lots of stunned, happy and tearstained faces at the interval. Then we watched a sunny afternoon drift through twilight to dark, a spectacular moonrise, murmurations of starlings, startling, amazing euphoric performances from the whole cast. A tree crashes through the piano! Then suddenly, again, quiet: feathers, and gentle snow, fell outside in the woods as Kate sang solo at the piano. Then we were up on our feet for a rousing (and the most in-time, in- tune and loudest I have ever heard) crowd singalong during the finale. A truly wonderful show. Such a talented lady - she most definitely still has it by the tonne - with en exceptional band and supporting cast. She seems so unassuming with it, too. I loved it at the start when she said Please welcome our backing singers, especially the cute one on the end!, referring to her son Bertie, who has a major role (more than that, actually) and performed brilliantly. Oh, Kate: why did you wait so long? I very much hope these shows have been filmed as I feel there is an iconic DVD just waiting to happen!

Breathtakingly sublime! from Jojo, 08/09/14
I always knew Kate would do some dates, I always knew I would get tickets & I always knew Kate would show the world just what a concert/show should be like & she did not disappoint! She chose or it chose the perfect venue to showcase this show. I was completely mesmerised, her voice is flawless & she looks flipping amazing!! The band were amazing & I cannot wait to see what the kt fellowship brings next! Kate - I just knew that something good was gonna happen! (Ps Im there closing night too!)

Wow! from Martin Campbell, 08/09/14
Kate Bush was wonderful. After 35 years away from the stage she reclaimed it and ruled supreme. The show was diverse, exciting, stimulating, moving and fun. The Eventim Apollo was a great stage for her to create such a complex show and the new interior areas were lovely.

Gobsmacked doesnt even come close from Bucks Hound, 08/09/14
Last Tuesday I spent an evening with Kate Bush, something I thought would never happen as I missed the initial ticket issue. After learning online that places were still becoming available, I logged into the Eventim site and spent an hour watching tickets slip through my fingers until finally one stuck. I punched the air as my payment was confirmed. I had never been to the Apollo before, but as the front of the theatre is visible from the tube station, finding the way there was never going to be a problem. I arrived just as the doors opened, the queue rapidly diminishing. Collecting my ticket by showing my passport and ticket order confirmation, was easy. Getting to the merchandise sites was a bit of a scrum but nevertheless civilised. The goods were displayed well, but the unboxed clothing stock was in some disarray. The merch staff did a great job getting the goods out. I had a great view, even way back in row X but had forgotten to bring a small pair of binoculars. The only unfortunate thing was that the guy three rows in front was about 6ft 8in tall. I had to spend a lot of the evening weaving about to get a view. I know Kates work and I knew this was never going to be a stand at the mic event. The evening was made all the more enjoyable by 99.9 of people heeding the request for no cameras. Indeed the request was applauded. Kates entrance with her backing vocalists was greeting with a cheer akin to a vulcan bomber takeoff, and had barely subsided as Kate launched into Lily. The whole place erupted upon hearing her distinctive voice. Kate was back, live, and taking no prisoners. This reaction greeted and ended every offering. The sound was excellent and not overloud, some of the vocalisation seeming to be clearer than on CD, an amazing testimony to the quality of Kates voice. The highlight for me remains the Ninth Wave from Hounds of Love. The on stage action and Kates shipwrecked image, mesmerised, and brought new meaning to well known songs. The crowd was in such a good emotional place at the interval, that I thought the stage cleaner was going to get a round of applause too. The whole of the second act was Sky of Honey, from Aerial. The addition of Tawny Moon by Kates son Bertie McIntosh was a big surprise. It was a very confident performance for someone his age, in that situation. The subject wasnt out of place, but the style was a bit incongruous with the rest of Sky. Nevertheless I want to hear that again too. I havent even mentioned the helicopter, the fish people, and the end of Sunset with what seemed like the worlds best Mariachi band ever. Cracking choice of band, Kate. The finale/encore. I feared for the structural integrity of the building during Cloudbusting. What a choice to finish on!

AWESOME!!!!!!! from Gary, 08/09/14
After finally getting my hands on a pair of these gold dust tickets my wife and I were blown away with the whole show!!, Kate did not disappoint at any stage and it was a delight to see her back live( I saw her back in 1979 at the Royal Palladium in London ) this is not a concert this is a well produced theatrical masterpiece and not to be missed if your lucky enough to have a ticket you will be a very lucky person and after nearly 3 hours of enjoyment you will walk away with a huge smile on your face after seeing a true artist perform
