Cloudbusting: The Music of Kate Bush


  • Date: Thursday 18th February 2016
  • Time: 7.30pm

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of ‘Hounds of Love’

This new 2-hour concert showcases the band's recent performance of the Hounds of Love album against a dazzling selection of hits such as Wuthering Heights, Babooshka and This Woman’s Work.

Mandy Watson as the voice of Kate doesn’t disappoint. She encompasses Kate's range with uncanny yet effortless accuracy and explores the emotional core of the songs without ever resorting to caricature.

The five-piece band’s authentic musical arrangements are complemented by eye-popping 3D-mapped projections and a backdrop of original videography created and contributed by Kate-inspired artists from around the world.

Cloudbusting’s remarkable stage show brings Kate’s music to spectacular life - their recent 50 date UK tour prompted Bush fans everywhere to flood their website and Facebook page with passionate praise and requests to return. A major promoter has secured a 30 date tour of Europe and the band are gearing up for a year of spreading the Kate love internationally. In the words of Kate herself:

’Let’s exchange the experience!’

‘Mandy Watson, the voice of Kate; she’s remarkable, a genuine gateway to Kate’s own sound while allowing just enough of her own engaging personality to peek through.’ The Latest
