Bush considers tour for first time in 30 years

Singer Kate Bush says she may perform live again -- more than 30 years after her one and only tour.

Bush, who gigged for six weeks in 1979 then retired from life on the road, says she wants to return to the stage.

In her first interview for many years she was unable to put a timeframe on her live return, but said she was aiming to do so before she became "too ancient". Bush was recently given permission to use extracts from James Joyce's 'Ulysses', 20 years after first asking.

She was just 20 when she completed The Tour Of Life after topping the charts with 'Wuthering Heights' the previous year.

In an interview with 'Mojo' magazine, the 52-year-old explained why she had abandoned the touring circuit. "It was enormously enjoyable. But physically it was absolutely exhausting," she said.
