Merchandise stands were a nightmare, maybe rethink when a HUGE artist is on. 20 mins waiting, people been allowed to push in. 4 poor girls serving trying their best.
Kate Bush (02/09/14) - Mesmerising
I go to many concerts and shows and have done since 1989. I have waited my whole life for this amazing artist to announce any live show of any kind I would be able toy attend. Got tickets via fan club presage on Eventim. Managed to secure excellent seats in centre stalls. The night of the show finally arrived. Kate was superb. Her voice was amazing. The stage set was breathtaking. It was an amazing show. Both concepts of the Ninth Wave and The Sky of Honey were visually WOW. After the show I have to say I felt 2 things. I am and have been for many years a fan. The show was stunning, visually vocally and would not have missed this once in a lifetime opportunity. On the other hand i can see why some fans may have been disappointed regarding the lack of hits as it were. Only because this is and will probably be the only ever time Kate does this, but clearly with her vast albums and career she could not do everything and can relate to the fact that we may never now hear some of these amazing hits live or see then visually performed. This is not a crticism but just an observation. Loved the show and cannot wait to attend the second show we have on 17th Sept 2014. Thank you Kate for giving your fans this opportunity. We loved it very much. Worth the wait.

The Apollo is a real entertainment venue, with the atmosphere you just dont get at places like the O2 or the NEC. One slight criticism.... Have water sellers at major events rather than people having to queue at the bars.
Kate Bush (02/09/14) - Truly Amazing.
I wasnt sure if this was going to live up to the hype. I neednt have worried. I was blown away by the whole set. From the musicianship to Kates vocal, from stage show to effects. We were treated to a mammoth artistic treat. I didnt even miss the early hits, so engrossing were the 3 hours. Please do more live shows Kate. Music and the arts need you.

Kate Bush (02/09/14) - Speechless
There will have been many, many reviews about this concert. It was simply extraordinary - Kate Bush was always going to do something left of centre, eccentric, artistic, creative, bonkers and she didnt fail to deliver. OK, so she didnt do the hits which though slightly disappointing at the time, didnt matter considering the sum of all the parts of this event. Her vocal was superlative, the band tight, her presence electric, the setting and the theatrics ranging from the beautiful to the frustrating - everything was considered and beautiful... As you can tell, words elude me. I can criticise elements - the pace at times, the dreadfully mawkish solo by son Bertie being the only crushingly low point - as well as the attention to detail in the costume, set etc which didnt quite translate to the balcony - but this is nit picking - and its Kate Bush who in once asking us to be kind to her mistakes freed herself artistically and creatively because when they infrequently happen, we do, we do. Before the Dawn encapsulates perfectly everything you ever thought about Kate Bush as an artist, an enigma, a muse, a contradiction, and as someone who I have obsessively loved her all my life, she delivered, and delivered, and delivered. If you are lucky enough to have tickets, you will by now know what to expect - ignore the backlash, no-one realistically expected Wuthering Heights, surely, take this for what it is - a sonic and visual feast.
