Cloudbusting - 40 Years of Kate Bush
(presented by University of Sussex Students Union)
‘If you missed Kate, Cloudbusting are the next best thing’ – Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 2
It's 40 years since The Kick Inside announced to the world the genius of Kate Bush. Since that remarkable debut, a series of groundbreaking albums has secured Kate’s place in music history. Her 2014 Before the Dawn concerts sold out in minutes and changed perceptions of what a concert could be forever. Influenced by none, but influencing many, there is truly no other artist like her.
‘Mandy started singing and I thought ‘Wow,that’s amazing!’ - Paddy McGuinness, BBC TV
Performing the music of Kate Bush with authenticity and passion since 2012, the five-piece band Cloudbusting have been championed by BBC One as one of the top tributes in the world. 2018 sees them celebrating this woman’s work in theatres up and down the UK with a new show, 40 YEARS OF KATE BUSH.
'I need to go to this!' - Zoe Ball, BBC Radio 2
The show centres around a complete performance of The Kick Inside with songs like Wuthering Heights, The Man with the Child in his Eyes and Them Heavy People staged against eye-popping visuals and projections. The rest of Kate’s career is represented by a vibrant choice of hits and album classics that will leave no Kate Bush fan disappointed: Running Up That Hill, Hounds of Love, Babooshka and many others.
‘I could have been listening to Kate herself!' - Preston Heyman, Kate’s drummer
Accolades for Mandy Watson’s vocals and the band’s superb musicianship continue to pour in from all sources; Kate’s own musical collaborators, press and radio but most significantly, Kate’s own fans.
‘Utterly, surreally brilliant’ - Mick Wall, Classic Rock Magazine
40 Years of Kate Bush features a lively selection of songs from across Kate’s career guaranteed to keep audiences enthralled all night.
