From a Press Association report on the MOJO interview:
But in a new interview with Mojo magazine to mark her comeback, the 52-year-old put her years of silence on the touring circuit down to the sheer exertion of the ordeal.
“It was enormously enjoyable. But physically it was absolutely exhausting,” she said.
“I still don’t give up hope completely that I’ll be able to do some live work, but it’s certainly not in the picture at the moment because I just don’t quite know how that would work with how my life is now,” said Bush, who has largely withdrawn from public life to bring up her son Bertie, 12. “Maybe I will do some shows some day. I’d like to think so before I get too ancient – turn up with me Zimmer frame.”
She continued: “I enjoy singing but with the albums it’s the whole process I find so interesting. If I was going to do some shows it would be the same thing. Let’s just see, shall we?” More about MOJO Magazine here.

i would sell my bikr my car and a kidney to see Kate play live.
Saw her at Hammersmith all those years ago. I’m still in love with her!
mats (another swede)
Oh dear Kate-its never the right time, please just let us see you live, even if its once,
OMG if kate did a live show I’d give up anything to
Have the chance to go and see her, for a 19 year old
I’m proud to say she has inpired me for years and if I
Could have I would have loved to be an impersinator
I said I would sell my soul to see her live – I hope she’s not been listening
In the meantime…
Even a few shows would be fantastic…
Kate ….THANKYOU 🙂
come on Kate,it’ll be a great show!
and don’t leave it to late,otherwise your fans will be turning up on “ZIMMER FRAMES” lol x
She’s a devious old git at time’s isn’t she?
What better way to get attention to promote a new album than to hint at returning to the stage!
I love you Kate, you tease you!! 😛
Ok, I’ll quit all my jobs just to see the show. :] Go KATE! 🙂
I saw Kate at the Apollo Manchester and would give anything for my daughter to be able to see her live on stage 🙂
I thought I could die happily just having Kate’s music in my life. Now I have to wait to see her live! How long can a human being really live?
well worth the wait x
What is a “zimmer frame”? I think the reason Kate found touring so exhausting is that she put on such a big spectacle. She had so much stamina on her live stage show that it must have really taken a toll physically. But what she probably doesn’t know is that we wouldn’t expect something so extravagant. I know Kate fans would be beyond pleased to just see her behind her piano with a back up band. I hope she knows this. But if she doesn’t take the stage again, we will be just as happy to have new Kate music in our lives.
A Zimmer frame is, basically, a walker for elderly people.
I would do anything to see Kate live!! It would be the experience of a lifetime!
Fingers crossed for a few shows x
