More about: Kate Bush
Tickets for Kate Bush's 2014 London live shows go on sale on Friday of this week - but it's not going to be an easy feat to get tickets for the shows, unfortunately.
Bush hasn't toured in 35 years, meaning that tickets to her 22 Hammersmith gigs in August and September of this year are in demand from fans across the planet. Indeed, even soul superstar Solange Knowles has tweeted about how much she hopes to get tickets to one of the shows. But unless she is one of the first online at 9.30am on Friday, 28 March 2014, she might end up empty handed too.
If my boyfriend really knows what's up, he'd be tryna get that best boyfriend award again by getting me tickets to see Kate Bush in Aug/Sep😶— solange knowles (@solangeknowles) March 21, 2014
Already, online ticket sales sites have revealed that demand for the tickets has been even bigger than for Beyonce's recent Mrs Carter UK dates, which were the most-wanted tickets in 2013. The Mirror newspaper has also published some worrying statistics about the volume of interest for the tickets, estimating that the 54,000 tickets could be snapped up very quickly by fans making the most of the four-tickets-per-person rule of the sale. Fans have even compared this week's on-sale to the rush last year to buy tickets for Glastonbury - but in reality, it is likely to be even more frantic.
It's just sunk in that the scramble for Kate Bush tickets on Friday will be worse than Glastonbury Sunday.— Roan (@proroan) March 25, 2014
