The Kick Inside 40th Anniversary Concert: Cloudbusting: The Music of Kate Bush
"The Kick Inside, released February 17th 1978, was the debut album that announced to the world the genius of Kate Bush.
Forty years later to the day, Cloudbusting will be performing The Kick Inside in its entirety at the Islington Assembly Hall, recreating the album's complex arrangements with stunning authenticity with the help of guest musicians and incorporating many visual surprises. If the success of the band's recent 30th anniversary performance of Hounds of Love was anything to go by, this unique concert will be an unmissable experience for any Kate Bush fan eager to celebrate the greatest debut album in pop music!
The thirteen self-penned songs touched on subjects such as sexuality, gun-slinging, period pains, the paranormal and darker aspects of human relationships never before visited in popular music. Kate’s voice was as inventive and intriguing as anything we’d ever heard: author Douglas Adams was so inspired by its other-wordly quality that he wrote ‘The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Universe’ with the album's most famous single Wuthering Heights on continuous repeat. The world fell under Kate’s spell and a legion of fans was born.
Join the internationally-acclaimed Cloudbusting on this special night, which will also feature a full set of hits and classics from the subsequent 40 years of Kate's remarkable career!"

This event takes place at Islington Assembly Hall, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
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.
