Tickets for Kate Bush’s London shows have sold out in a under 15 minutes with a twitter users taking to the social network to express their delight or distaste at missing out.
Simon Presswell, Managing Director, Ticketmaster UK, said: “As expected demand for Kate Bush tickets was phenomenal. At our peak the Ticketmaster website had over 65,000 fans looking for tickets, and our call centre was humming.
“After a 35 year wait several thousand lucky fans will be seeing Kate Bush perform live, but despite playing 22 dates demand has significantly exceeded the number of tickets available so regrettably a number of fans will be left disappointed.”
Kate also said this morning: “I’m completely overwhelmed by the response to the shows. Thank you so much to everyone. Looking forward to seeing you all later this year.”
Here’s the good, the bad and the ignorant.
wow. All the scurry for Kate Bush tickets. Does no one just drunkenly blag the label the night before the gig anymore? I dunno. Kids today.
