Photographer Max Browne is preparing a new book which will showcase his incredible photographs from Kate’s 1979 Lionheart tour. I’m very grateful to Max for sharing this exclusive, never-before-seen photo with me; it shows Kate, with Peter Gabriel, on stage at the benefit concert in aid of her lighting engineer, Bill Duffield. The show took place on 12th May 1979 and I’m not 100% sure what song they were performing here, possibly Peter’s song “I Don’t Remember” – see set list below. Below it is another photo by Max of Kate with Steve Harley (Cockney Rebel) at the same concert. See more photos of Kate live in 1979 taken by Max here. We’ll update you on his book when there’s more information.
