Kate Bush Performs First London Show In 35 Years SETLIST

Kate Bush took the stage on Tuesday night at London’s Eventim Apollo to play her first show in 35 years. It is the first of 21 shows that she will perform at the venue between now and October 1.

Reports have her taking the stage barefoot and in a black dress. The crowd gave her a standing ovation after practically every song.

The show was very theatrical with such special effects as a lighting rig that has the sound of helicopter blades being piped out of it sailing across the audience and a number of different set changes with theatrical lighting.

Security in the venue is keeping a very tight cap on phones and cameras, so don’t expect a lot of shots from the show.

Bush performed nine of the twelve songs from her 1985 album Hounds of Love including the entire original side two, The Ninth Wave. She performed at least one song from all of her studio albums.

The set list:
Lily (from The Red Shoes, 1993)
Hounds of Love (from Hounds of Love, 1985)
Joanni (from Aerial, 2005)
