Please don't film my gigs, Bush asks fans

Kate Bush has asked fans not to film her comeback gigs when they begin next week.

The Wuthering Heights star (56) said it would "mean a great deal to me" if people did not use their phones during the concerts.

The London gigs mark her return to the stage after more than three decades and at the same venue, the Hammersmith Apollo, where she retired from live performances after six weeks on the road.

She was 20 when she completed The Tour Of Life with three dates at what was then the Hammersmith Odeon, after topping the charts with Wuthering Heights the previous year.

Writing on her website, she said she was "very excited" about the shows.

"I have a request. We have purposefully chosen an intimate theatre. It would mean a great deal to me if you would please refrain from taking photos or filming during the shows," she said.
