40 Years Of Kate Bush: Cloudbusting: The Music of Kate Bush
"‘If you missed Kate, Cloudbusting are the next best thing’ - Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 2
It's 40 years since The Kick Inside announced to the world the genius of Kate Bush.
Since that remarkable debut, a series of groundbreaking albums has secured Kate’s place in music history. Her 2014 Before the Dawn concerts sold out in minutes and changed perceptions of what a concert could be forever. Influenced by none, but influencing many, there is truly no other artist like her.
‘Mandy started singing and I thought ‘Wow, that’s amazing!’ - Paddy McGuinness, BBC TV
Performing the music of Kate Bush with authenticity and passion since 2012, the five-piece band Cloudbusting have been championed by BBC One as one of the top tributes in the world. 2018 sees them celebrating this woman’s work in theatres up and down the UK with a new show, 40 YEARS OF KATE BUSH.
'I need to go to this!' - Zoe Ball, BBC Radio 2
The show centres around a celebration of The Kick Inside, with songs like Wuthering Heights, The Man with the Child in his Eyes and Them Heavy People staged against eye-popping visuals and projections. The rest of Kate’s career is represented by a vibrant choice of hits and album classics that will leave no Kate Bush fan disappointed: Running Up That Hill, Hounds of Love, Babooshka and many others!
‘I could have been listening to Kate herself!' - Preston Heyman, Kate’s drummer
Accolades for Mandy Watson’s vocals and the band’s superb musicianship continue to pour in from all sources; Kate’s own musical collaborators, press and radio but most significantly, Kate’s own fans.
‘Utterly, surreally brilliant’ - Mick Wall, Classic Rock Magazine
40 Years of Kate Bush features a lively selection of songs from across Kate’s career guaranteed to keep audiences enthralled all night.

Cloudbusting: The Music of Kate Bush
It’s no wonder Kate Bush was listed as No. 2 (after John Lennon) in the Telegraph’s best British Singer/Songwriter category. In 2014 Kate returned to the stage after a 35 year break, gaining record breaking ticket sales whilst becoming the only woman to ever have 8 albums simultaneously in the UK charts.
The five-piece band Cloudbusting provide a two hour performance featuring Kate Bush favourites, including Wow, Wuthering Heights, Babooshka, Running Up That Hill and many others from Kate’s wonderful back catalogue. The show is seamlessly complemented by video projections created for the band by their own videographer along with contributions from artists inspired by Kate from around the world. Paying attention to every musical detail and faithfully recreating the true essence of Kate Bush, Cloudbusting will take you on an amazing musical journey with a performance that is as sonically perfect as it is visually awesome.
Cloudbusting have gained critical acclaim not only from audiences around the country but also radio, the press and even Kate Bush’s own musicians and collaborators:
“Mandy’s vocals were so good, I could have been listening to Kate herself!” Preston Heyman, Kate Bush Band, Tour of Life.
“Absolutely, surreally brilliant.” Mick Wall, Classic Rock Magazine.
