 Kate Bush is one of my musical heroes.  She last played live in 1979.  I was convinced I would never have the privilege of seeing her play.

A week ago, she announced - to the astonishment of pretty much everybody - that she'd be playing fifteen shows at the good old Hammy O.

A few days ago that number of shows grew to twenty-two, due to the demand for tickets.

Tickets went on sale this morning at 9:30am.  I was ready, but hardly dared hope I'd be lucky enough to get tickets.

I was right to be cautious.  Even after being thrown from the waiting room to the booking site proper, every date I clicked immediately came back as sold out.  I despaired.  Yes, I wept.

The tickets had all sold out within less than fifteen minutes, according to the BBC.

So it was with a vague sense of astonishment that my 'one last try' resulted in me finally being offered a transaction screen.

Wow.  Wow.  Wow.  Wow.  Wow.  Wow.
Unbelievable.

I am going to see Kate Bush in September.

Yes, still weeping...

Very jealous. I'm not based within easy striking distance of London or I'd have made more of an effort myself. Enjoy!
