The first European date will be Thursday 25th April – Carre Theatre, Amsterdam and the minimum ticket price will be 17 Euros. Further dates are to be announced.
Says Maaike: “While we’re still in production rehearsals it’s a little bit of a guess which songs will be my favourite to perform, as they might be different from the ones I love to sing most or listen to at home. But I’m really looking forward to performing Breathing, Them Heavy People and Army Dreamers. I won’t say anything more about the set list though.”
Producer Spike Beecham says: “It was important to me that this show was treated as if I was putting together a show for Kate Bush and our idea of what we believe Kate Bush would have done with the songs she never performed live. We have an amazing live band, taken the elements of dance we found in videos and from footage of Kate’s one and only tour and used these as a basis for some newly choreographed routines.”
If this came to America I would see it.
Often imitated, NEVER originated!
I know but I love Kate so seeing a well done tribute to her would be nice.
Have to say saw Maaike perform her WOW show last night in Northampton- 8/3/2013 and have to say she was fantastic. Well worth seeing and she must be destined to become one of the finest tribute acts around. We were taken on a journey through the music and the recreation of Kate Bush how perhaps she may have performed live had there been more tours over the years.
