Kate Bush maps first tour in 35 years

English songstress Kate Bush will return to the stage for a round of London concerts for the first time since 1979.

The singer/songwriter will tackle a 22-gig residency at London's Eventim Apollo, beginning Aug. 26 and continuing through a Sept. 19 performance. Tickets for the shows go on sale Friday (3/28).

The forthcoming outing, dubbed the "Before The Dawn" tour, marks Bush's first series of full-length performances since 1979. That six-week "Tour of Life" trek consisted of 24 shows across Europe and the U.K., and during the outing, Bush's lighting director, Bill Duffield, died in an accident.

Bush's most recent studio album, "50 Words for Snow," surfaced in 2011 on her own Fish People label. That set peaked at No. 83 on The Billboard 200, but reached Nos. 7 and 9 respectively on the magazine's Independent Albums and Alternative Albums charts.
