    It’s a pity Kate has to share the frontpages with such a horrid scandal. Shameful! I’ m so sorry not to have tickets for the shows, but I am still hoping! I was there on the Tour of life. She was a pioneer and still is. Unique in everything she does and never ceases to amaze me.
    No Kate doesn’t turn to the stage after 36 years just to sing a few hit songs. Well done Kate! You have done us proud.

      Agree with that unfortunate collision of events Dee. Would have edited images, but scarcely had the time whilst trying to get everything else covered.

    At least it shows that amongst all the depressing news of late there is a ray of sunshine to be thankful for

    I bought all these newspapers. But what the hell ist wrong with “The Times”? Some quotes: “… before singing ‘Joni’, a tribute to Joni Mitchell.” ; “Bush lost at sea, singing ‘let me be weak, let me dream of sleep’ (sic!)” ; “A lighter-than-air ‘Day of Fog’ followed.”
    Ehm, research, anyone? I think it’s kind of annoying that “The Times” sent a journalist who obviously hadn’t had the slightest clue of Kate’s music.

      I think we should start a collection of these bloopers!

      I got a few of these papers at the airport the next day and thought the same thing! Joni Mitchell? Did the guy even listen to the song? I was surprised and disturbed by the numerous errors in reporting the concert. I was also annoyed at the constant declarations of “And then she did a skit about sausages!” These reporters make it sound like Kate Bush inserted a random Monty Python sketch into the show. I think the reporters intentionally try to make everything she does seem nutty even when it isn’t. If one is actually following the entire story she is telling in The Ninth Wave, there is no “skit about sausages.” There is a scene with a father and son going through the normal, mundane domestic routine of making dinner and settling in for the evening while the mother is still at work. After some family banter, the son casually observes, “Mum’s late” and goes back to eating and watching football on television while the father becomes concerned before trying to shake off the worry. And then Kate launches into “Watching You Without Me.” It’s very touching and blends effortlessly into the storyline. I’ve yet to see the scene described properly in a newspaper.
