Cloudbusting: 40 Years Of Kate Bush

It's 40 years since The Kick Inside announced to the world the genius of Kate Bush.


Since that remarkable debut, a series of ground-breaking 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.

If you missed Kate, Cloudbusting are the next best thing Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 2

Performing the music of Kate Bush with authenticity and passion since 2012, the five-piece band Cloudbusting have been championed by BBC1 as one of the top tributes in the world. 2019 sees them celebrating this woman’s work in theatres up and down the UK with a new show, 40 Years of Kate Bush.

The show will centre around a celebration of The Kick Inside, 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 could leave no Kate Bush fan disappointed: Running Up That Hill, Hounds Of Love, Babooshka and many others!

I need to go to this! Zoe Ball, BBC Radio 2

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 and most significantly, Kate’s own fans.

I could have been listening to Kate herself! Preston Heyman, Kate’s drummer
