Cloudbusting to headline Kate Bush party

Kate Bush fan magazine HomeGround will mark her return to the stage with a party night at London's Royal Vauxhall Tavern on June 20.

It’s to be headlined by tribute act Cloudbusting, along with DJs Phil Marriott, Paul Burston, Dave Cross and Paul Thomas, who’ll be playing nothing but Bush material.

She delighted followers earlier this year by announcing a residency at the Hammersmith Eventim Apollo, which has grown to a run of 22 shows between August 26 and September 19.

HomeGround tied into the occasion by confirming the release of a two-volume anthology containing the best of its coverage since launching in 1982. Now editors say: “In this very special year for Kate fans, you can expect it to be a fantastic night.”

Tickets are on sale via Doors open at 9pm on June 20 and the party ends at 3am.

Bush is the cover star of the current edition of Prog, available in print and digital formats.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
