Fans reacted with a mixture of delight and despair this morning as tickets to see Kate Bush sold out in just 15 minutes (March 28).

The mad rush for tickets was documented by users online, with both Kate Bush and, tellingly, "no Bush" both trending in the UK on Twitter. The singer, who has not toured since 1979, will play 22 live dates at the Eventim Apollo London later this year.

The live shows will take place in August, September and October. The rush for tickets follows the huge demand for a pre-sale allocation available earlier this week (March 26) to fans registered at her official website, which sold out in 30 minutes.
