Kate Bush "overwhelmed" as 22 London shows sell out in minutes

Kate Bush's run of 22 London shows sold out this morning [March 28] in less than 15 minutes.

According to a statement released by Bush's press agent, the tickets which went on sale at 9.30am this morning are now completely sold-out.

“I’m completely overwhelmed by the response to the shows," said Bush. "Thank you so much to everyone. Looking forward to seeing you all later this year.”

The shows, called the Before The Dawn, were announced a week ago, with a further seven shows added on Wednesday. The shows will take place at London's Eventim Apollo Hammersmith.

These are Bush's first major live dates since 1979's Tour Of Life, since when she has given only the occasional live performance.
