The Kick Inside, released in 1978, was the debut album that announced to the world the genius of Kate Bush. The hit single Wuthering Heights stopped everyone who heard it in their tracks… yet every song on the album was proof that here was a musical imagination like no other! The world fell under Kate’s spell and a legion of fans was born.
In 2014 Kate’s first live performances in 35 years sold out in minutes and her place among the greatest musical innovators of modern times was sealed. It seems beyond the realms of possibility that Kate herself will ever perform these early songs again, but luckily for lovers of live music Cloudbusting are ready and willing to step up to the mark.
Throughout 2018, Cloudbusting will be celebrating 40 Years of Kate Bush with a new show recreating elements of her debut album amidst a fresh retrospective of hits and classic tracks from across her career.
Vocalist Mandy Watson’s performances continue to astound audiences at home and abroad, her passionate and emotional delivery eschewing any notion of pastiche in favour of a genuinely respectful appreciation of Kate’s music. The band’s reputation for world-class musicianship and authentic arrangements will not disappoint either, and an eye-popping stage show is set to incorporate many new visual surprises that complement Kate’s music perfectly.
