CLOUDBUSTING 2019 IRISH TOUR DATES

We’ve said it many times: before you bristle at the thought of a Kate Bush “tribute” act (and I certainly have in the past), you really should check out some of them for yourself. The quality really is very high indeed these days, in many ways Kate’s music just demands that. It’s a special thrill to hear these songs played in a live setting, feels a bit like getting a hug from an old friend! At the very top of the stack is of course Cloudbusting. Fronted by singer Mandy Watson, these superb musicians play to sold out shows and to huge demand all over the UK.

Their winning formula is fairly simple; they focus on the delivery of the music and the vocals without attempts at parody or mimicry. Their set really is the stuff of fans dreams; featuring not just all the well known singles, but unexpected album cuts and rarer songs too. To give you an example of what Cloudbusting bring to the table – read my review of their stunning 4oth Anniversary of The Kick Inside show. You can watch a clip from that show above where Kate’s choreography consultant and dance partner, Stewart Avon Arnold, joined them and performed a dance to complement The Man With The Child In His Eyes, along with his dance partner Tori Wood-Ives. Stewart had always wanted to create something for this song, one of the few he didn’t dance to on the 1979 Lionheart tour. 

“Throughout, singer Mandy Watson brought a searing authenticity to her vocals, never attempting to parody Kate’s voice. The result is a performance from her that is consistently sensational. Mandy always addresses the audience as herself, a singer, never pretending to be Kate, just a genuine fan of this music wanting to do it justice. She deserves special praise for taking on the sheer array of Kate’s most elaborate songs which the band had woven into this show, and making it seem effortless.” 

Irish fans – do not miss!
