Kate Bush has asked fans not to take photos at her forthcoming run of live shows.

The singer will play her first series of gigs since 1979 later this month when she begins a 22-date run at London's Eventim Apollo, which will take place between August and October.

"We're all very excited about the upcoming shows and are working very hard in preparation. It's going very well indeed, " she wrote in a note on her website.

She then added that she had a request for fans who are coming to the gigs: "We have purposefully chosen an intimate theatre setting rather than a large venue or stadium. It would mean a great deal to me if you would please refrain from taking photos or filming during the shows. I very much want to have contact with you as an audience, not with iphones, ipads or cameras. I know it's a lot to ask but it would allow us to all share in the experience together."

More than 80,000 tickets to see the pop icon went onsale on March 28 this year and sold out in just 15 minutes. The run of shows will be called Before The Dawn and will begin on August 26.




Kate Bush joins artists including Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Savages in asking fans not to film at their gigs.
