Kate Bush begins her sell-out UK concerts tonight after a 35 year break

Wow. Kate Bush is back! Here at Lovely's Vintage Emporium we are HUGE fans and are so excited that her first tour for 35 years starts tonight (Tuesday 26th August). We have tickets for this Friday night so we will of course blog again once we have seen her show.

An incredible 11 Kate Bush albums are now in the UK top 100 chart, since she announced this tour. She is doing 22 shows and the tickets sold out in less than 15 minutes. We were lucky enough to get tickets as one of the Lovely's Vintage Emporium team had been a member of the Kate Bush fan club since he was 11...

Here is one of our tickets. We have blurred out personal details.

In 1978, Kate Bush became the first British woman to top the UK singles chart with a song she wrote - that song was the iconic Wuthering Heights. Her last, and only, six-week tour was in 1979 when she was aged just 20. She is now 56.

See you at Hammersmith Apollo Kate!

There will be over 150 knitwear pieces from the private collection of Mark and Cleo Butterfield, including 1920s Chanel cardigan suits, crocheted 1930s evening dresses, Courreges 1960s knitted dresses and Sonia Rykiel and Vivienne Westwood 1980s knits and more. 

Knitwear in fashion is often taken for granted, but this exhibition is an opportunity to celebrate knitwear center stage and to inspire future design directions. Decade by decade, this incredible collection charts over 100 years of knitwear history. It is the first exhibition of its kind to explore not only key designers but also technical innovations in hand, machine, and industrial knitting,” says Celia Joicey, head of the Fashion and Textile Museum.
