KATE Bush has sold out all 22 dates of her forthcoming series of live shows in London in less than 15 minutes.

Tickets went on sale at 9.30am this morning and are now completely sold out.

The shows will take place at London’s Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith, starting on August 26.

Kate said this morning: “I’m completely overwhelmed by the response to the shows. Thank you so much to everyone. Looking forward to seeing you all later this year.”

viagogo, the world’s largest secondary ticket marketplace, is currently seeing 400 searches per minute for tickets for the Before The Dawn series of gigs, almost rivalling the 500 searches per minute seen for One Direction’s UK date announcement in September.

A spokesperson for viagogo comments: “Kate Bush is a phenomenon and her return to the stage after a 35 year hiatus has made this an unmissable event for her fans. When you compare her to her contemporaries, Kate Bush is by far the most popular act of her era to tour, with demand outstripping that for mega-selling acts including Fleetwood Mac, Rod Stewart and CHIC.”
