Kate Bush tickets being sold for more than £1,000 each on secondary ticketing sites

Tickets are listed for an average of around £800

Tickets for Kate Bush at London’s Hammersmith Apollo are already listed for sale online on sites such as Viagogo and eBay for prices as high as £1,475.

All 22 shows sold out in just 15 minutes when they went on sale at 9.30 this morning (March 28).

Ticket marketplace Viagogo said in a statement: “The lowest ticket price on the site is £795 and the highest is £1,250. Just because a ticket is listed at a certain price doesn’t mean it will sell for that much. There are unique events like this where demand and prices are very high. For example, when Andy Murray became the first British man to win Wimbledon in 76 years in 2013, tickets for the final were listed for £80,000 for a pair but the highest anyone paid was £7,500.”

Shortly after tickets started appearing online, it was reported that the original buyer’s name would be on the tickets, with a photo ID required for entry. According to Viagogo, they “have processes in place to ensure every buyer will get in. These processes are confidential.”

Kate Bush, who has not toured since 1979, will play 22 live dates at the Eventim Apollo London between August and October.
