    Now that both Peter Gabriel and Kate are active in music again it would be a shame if they didn't reunite for something.

    Presumably an extended version of the On Stage EP, but including Babooshka and Un Baiser D'Enfant (The Infant Kiss), otherwise unreleased?

    Does anyone know the story behind why On Stage sounds like a different performance to the Live at Hammersmith Odeon CD? They seem to be credited as from the same show everywhere.

    Lots of stories today about Coachella "turning down" Kate Bush, but it sounds more like they decided not to pursue her. I wonder if she'd even be interested?

    I doubt she would be interested if presented the offer. Isn't she afraid of flying? Has she ever performed in the states?

    Wow! I've had this fantasy/daydream of Kate playing Coachella at some point. They be dumb for not scheduling her.

    A spokesperson for Kate Bush told The Independent: "It was never Kate's intention to play any more shows than she did in London. The show was conceived for a very specific type of venue. No discussions were ever had with Kate about playing any festival, including Coachella."

    ^ I was just coming here to post that. It was just a hypothetical situation. She's too much of a control freak to do the festival scene.

    Yup, just typical click-bait fake news headline crap world we live in now.

    That being said, I wonder if Desert Trip happens again this fall, this might just be build up to that. Something like that, while still probably highly unlikely, makes more sense than her trying to bring an elaborate production to a major music festival with 100+ other acts to only get a shortened set time.

    Wasn't there some rumor about Glastonbury offering Kate her own stage at one point?

    More to the story:

    http://www.latimes.com/entertainment...411-story.html

    In the New Yorker story, William Morris Entertainment agent Marc Geiger was quoted saying he had pitched Tollett on booking Kate Bush, the beloved and influential English musician who rarely tours but triumphed in a stretch of acclaimed performances in London in 2014. (She has never toured the U.S.) Geiger’s version of Tollett’s response had him replying, “No! No one is going to understand it.”

    That set the Internet abuzz, prompting a representative for Bush on Tuesday to issue a statement saying, “It was never Kate’s intention to play any more shows than she did in London. The show was conceived for a very specific type of venue. No discussions were ever had with Kate about playing any festival, including Coachella.”

    For Tollett, the New Yorker article hit a sensitive spot. “Even going back before Coachella [started in 1999], Goldenvoice has been after her for 25 years,” he said. “She just doesn’t do very many shows.”

    Some concert industry pundits as well as Coachella-goers had speculated that Bush might have filled in for Beyoncé after the pop-R&B singer bowed out of her scheduled headlining appearance this year on doctor’s orders because of her pregnancy.

    But that scenario didn’t fly with Tollett, even if Bush had been interested and available.

    “That’s not the right place to put her — as a replacement for Beyoncé on a Saturday night. She’s never played in America, and to think that could be arranged in 30 days, that would be impossible….,” Tollett said. “We’ve had a long history of delicacies at Coachella, and that is one of the ultimate delicacies. Of course we would want that.”

    Thank you. This whole "controversy" has been stupid. I'm positive that if anyone even ran the idea by Kate herself, it would be an emphatic NO. Coachella is not the right fit for her (this year or any, really)... if she ever comes to America, it would be a NY residency or something.
