Never 40r Ever
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
It’s nearly 40 years since Kate Bush presented her astonishing third album Never For Ever to the world. The first to be produced by Kate herself, it was released in September 1980 and featured the UK top 20 singles Babooshka, Army Dreamers and Breathing. This stunning album was the first by a British female solo artist to reach the top of the UK charts and the first by any female solo artist to go straight in at number one!
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this ground-breaking release, Cloudbusting will be performing the entire recording live in selected theatres across the UK. Staged with dynamic backdrop video projections, this limited run of special performances will explore the detail and passion in this woman’s work.
The band will be joined on stage by additional musicians and vocalists to accurately and authentically perform this complex collection of songs, along with a dazzling selection of Kate’s other hits.
Fans of Kate who witnessed Cloudbusting’s anniversary shows of the classic Hounds Of Love and The Kick Inside albums will know that these concerts are absolutely not to be missed and as the band’s reputation continues to grow across Europe and beyond, so will demand for these shows… so book your tickets early!
‘Utterly, surreally brilliant’ Classic Rock Magazine
This show was rescheduled from 24th September 2020.
Cloudbusting: The Music Of Kate Bush
‘If you missed seeing Kate herself, Cloudbusting are the next best thing!’ Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 2 Cloudbusting have been championed by BBC ONE as one of the most authentic tributes in the world. Their passion for Kate’s music has won over sceptical fans everywhere, challenging perceptions of what a tribute band can be and resulting in sell-out performances across the UK. ‘There can only be one Kate Bush’ says vocalist Mandy Watson, who never attempts to mimic Kate on stage. ‘When you sing her music the characters in the songs take over - they are what you become, not Kate. We're just fans, amazed at this opportunity to perform this music we love so much’. Many of Kate’s original collaborators from stage and studio have been inspired to join the band on stage, including bass player Del Palmer, drummer Preston Heyman and dancer Stewart Avon Arnold, all of whom performed with Kate on her legendary Tour of Life live shows 40 years ago. ‘I could have been listening to Kate herself!' - Preston Heyman Running Up That Hill, Wuthering Heights, Hounds of Love, Babooshka, This Woman’s Work, Wow… Cloudbusting can’t wait to whip up a storm of love for Kate’s music once again in 2021, their new show featuring all the hits you’d expect as well as many songs you wouldn’t! Accompanied by eye-popping visuals that highlight the drama of Kate’s music, a Cloudbusting concert is an event no Kate Bush fan will want to miss. In the words of Kate herself, ‘We’re Cloudbusting, daddy!’ ‘Utterly, surreally brilliant’ - Mick Wall, Classic Rock Magazine
