The

Kick

Inside

40 YEARS OF

KATE BUSH

It’s 40 years since The Kick Inside announced to the world the

genius of Kate Bush.

Since that remarkable debut, a series of ground-breaking

albums has secured Kate’s place in music history. Her Before the

Dawn concerts sold out in minutes and changed perceptions

of what a concert could be forever. Influenced by none,

influencing many, there is truly no other artist like her.

Performing the music of Kate Bush with authenticity and

passion since 2012, the five-piece Cloudbusting have been

championed by BBC1 as one of the top tributes in the world.

2018 sees them celebrating this woman’s work in theatres up

and down the UK with a new show, 40 Years of Kate.

The show will centre around a celebration of The Kick Inside,

songs like Wuthering Heights, The Saxophone Song and The

Man with the Child in his Eyes staged against eye-popping

visuals and projections. The rest of Kate’s career is represented

by a vibrant choice of hits and album classics that could leave

no Kate Bush fan disappointed.

Accolades for Mandy Watson’s vocals and the band’s superb

musicianship continue to pour in from all sources; Kate’s own

musical collaborators, press and radio and most significantly,

Kate’s own fans.

‘Utterly, surreally brilliant’ - Mick Wall, Classic Rock Magazine

‘The UK’s finest’ - HomeGround & KateBushNews

‘I could have been listening to Kate herself!’ - Preston Heyman,

Kate’s drummer

KING OF POP

- THE LEGEND CONTINUES STARRING ‘NAVI’

Get ready to moonwalk the night away at a show whose star performer ‘Navi’ once earned a

standing ovation from Michael Jackson himself.

The superb production stars the world’s No.1 MJ impersonator ‘Navi’ who was actually invited

to perform at two of Michael Jackson’s birthday parties in LA and New York. Michael not only

applauded Navi but also gave him a standing ovation and invited the impersonator to spend a

day at his home ‘Neverland’. The pair remained close and due to Navi’s uncanny resemblance

to the star, he was often hired by Michael to act as a decoy to distract mobs of fans and press.

Navi has since continued to work at the highest level performing in a whopping 57 different

countries and is now back in the UK for a national theatre tour along with his incredible live

band and dancers. Navi brilliantly recreates all the magical classics from the early Jackson 5

songs to mega-hits such as Thriller and Smooth Criminal in a show the whole family will enjoy.
