#PlayTime: Celebrate Kate Bush's First Tour in 35 Years With Her 5 Best Tracks

21 March 2014 by

In a bit of a work slump right now? Welcome to #PlayTime, Grazia Daily's new music feature bringing you a different hot track every day of the week. From just-dropped music premieres to cool covers and throwback classics, its the new soundtrack to your day.

Woo! Kate Bush just announced her first gigs in 35 years! The singer - who's famous for 'Hounds Of Love' and 'Wuthering Heights' - has revealed she'll play 15 UK shows in August and September.

Kate released her last album in 2011 - themed around snow - and bagged a CBE for services to music in 2013, but hasn't hit the stage since 1979.

Named 'Before the Dawn', the mini-tour will kick off at London's Hammersmith Apollo on August 26. Interestingly, the tour's starting at the same venue she ended her last tour at... all 35 years ago. 

Tickets go on sale at 9.30am next Friday, March 28, so make sure you're ready to snap them up. Until then - we're using this huge news as an excuse to listen to Kate's greatest hits. And she really has some incredible tracks to choose from. We chose five of our favourites - from Running Up That Hill' to 'Hounds Of Love' - and all we're saying is HELLO office singalongs this afternoon! 

'Wuthering Heights'

Inspired by the book, 'Wuthering Heights' is the most haunting of love songs.

'Running Up That Hill'

Magical, mysterious and powerful, an all-time fave.

'Hounds of Love'

Karaoke classic.


This quirky number shows of Kate's super powerful voice to the max.

'This Woman's Work'

'This Woman's Work' was written for the soundtrack of classic rom-com She's Having A Baby
