Kate Bush emerges from a 35 year-self-imposed exile from the concert stage (well, PROPER concerts, anyway) for a month-long residency at the Hammersmith in London beginning in August. Fifteen minutes after tickets went on sale at 5:30AM ET (9:30 GMT) today, all 80,000 were gone. (Here’s a blog that detailed the frenzy as it happened.)
And they weren’t cheap. Standard tickets ran £49-£135 ($90-$250 CAD), although you could opt for higher-priced hospitality packages which included a hamper of fine food. Like what? Salmon pâtém, poussin caesar salad, prawn salad with pistachio cous-cous along with a bamboo cone of chocolate and caramel-dipped berries.
The residence starts August 26 and ends October 1. Any bets of how high the scalpers will go?
