Big news: At about 4pm yesterday the editors at HomeGround magazine heard a rumour that Kate was to perform at a concert at The Royal Festival Hall by Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour. The previous evening Bob Geldof had been his special guest. Peter Fitzgerald Morris (who says “we all missed this one!”) forwarded this review from a Pink Floyd fan website: “Concert was excellent last night…high points were Wish You Were Here (David stopped singing and the crowd sang the whole song), Fat Old Song and Dominoes. Guests were Kate Bush and Rick Wright.
Kate sang Comfortably Numb and Rick played keyboards for three songs.” Peter comments:”Unless I’m forgetting something, excluding Kate’s brief song at the 1990 Convention (an unaccompanied song of thanks to her fans), this was her first public performance since 1987 – almost fifteen years. Reports say these Gilmour gigs were being recorded for a DVD to be released later this year. In 1987 she did the Secret Policeman’s Third Ball with a backing band including Gilmour, and also the Peter Gabriel gig at Earl’s Court.” The concert had apparently sold out weeks ago. More on this breaking news as I get it! (with thanks to PDFM at)
