Kate Bush Tour 2014: British pop singer Kate Bush is in the middle of her comeback tour and just became the first woman with eight albums in the top 40 chart at the same time

Kate Bush returned to the stage for her first show for 35 years on Tuesday, at London's Hammersmith Apollo where she played her last live show in 1979. The 56-year-old s singer saw two of her records hit the top ten of the Official Albums Chart, with six more in the top 40. The "Wuthering Heights singer has been performing three-hour sets.

The "Running Up That Hill" singer, Kate Bush, is in the middle of a 22-date residency at the Hammersmith Apollo in London  77,000 tickets sold out in 15 minutes for 22 shows.

Martin Talbot, chief executive of the Official Charts Company, said: "This is a fantastic achievement for Kate Bush. Her new live shows have created a huge stir, but for them to help push her catalogue to make such a significant sales impact is further evidence of the love that the British public have for her music, from generation to generation."

Kate Bush, the singer of Babushka, is one of the most influential musical artists who put art back in art-rock. The Spice Girls, Madonna, Kylie, Cyndi Lauper, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Miley Cyrus all walked in Kate Bush's Red Shoes.

Kate Bush influenced a generation of musicians, male and female. While it's obvious to point to Tori Amos as one of her Kate Bush's most fervent students, modern pop stars from Lady Gaga to Katy Perry have benefited from the Kate Bush's stage craft. Miley Cyrus' MTV VMA's performance 2013 owes a major debt to seminal performances by Kate Bush.

According to the Daily Star, Kate Bush tour 2014 kicks off in August. The show is called "Before The Dawn." Tickets go on sale starting next week, the Daily Star reported.

The 55-year-old British singer's last album '50Words For Snow' was released in 2011.
