2000: Kylie

Spinning Around started a sort of love affair. I haven’t explored her discography in full, but I know her hits and enjoyed every album since Light Years. I did go back and explore her IP album, which I love. It’s so Kylie but so not Kylie :lol:

2001: Madonna

I got GHV2 for Christmas by mistake. I still remember the first time I listened to it - I had my infa-red headphones connected to my hi-fi, and was doing a Harry Potter puzzle. I told a friend when we got back to school after Christmas break, who lent me TIC - and I never looked back.

2009: Rod Stewart

An odd omission of sorts because I don’t listen to his music. I got free tickets to see him live in 2009 and he put on such a good show that when I was offered free tickets to his following tour, I was quite excited. Actually, I did listen to his album Time and it had some great songs on it. But I was surprised how many of his hits I know when I catch him live.

2010: Bon Jovi

Okay, everyone knows Livin’ on a Prayer, which is actually a bloody good song. I love that 1 song so much that (again) when I got offered free tickets to see them in London back in 2010 I fell in love with them as a band and ran out the next day (to Amazon) to buy their Greatest Hits album. Stood in The o2 surrounded by everyone singing their hearts out to Always was one hell of a way to discover that song, and subsequently, them.

2010: Annie Lennox

My mother loved Eurythmics so I knew their stuff, but (again) I was offered free tickets to see Annie Lennox headline a charity event in London. Me and my BFF turned up and when the doors opened everyone strolled in, so I told her to let it and we got front row barrier to see a few ransoms, Mel C and Annie. Okay, I knew her song Sing at this point (because, well, Madonna feature) but I was unfamiliar with her solo work. It was just her and a piano. It was a short set, but I fell in love with NMILYs and went n bought her GHs soon afterwards. The highlight that night though was an uptempo solo piano version of Sweet Dreams - very pub singalong :lol:

2014: Kate Bush

When she announced her first ‘tour’ in 30 years and her entire album catalogue all went top 40 on the official charts, I knew something special was happening in music and her shows were going to be a big deal. I tried to get tickets, despite not knowing her music, but failed. It was worth a go.

Then when they started, I managed to get a ticket on the day of a show and suddenly I was going. I did not know her music, except for WH (which is the one song everyone knows). I paid almost £80 to see someone live I knew nothing about, but by god was it money well spent.

I suspect I’m the only person to be introduced to the majestic Hounds of Love and Aerial album for the first time in person, watching Kate Bush herself actually singing them live.

Clearly everyone around me had been fans for decades and never thought they’d see her live. Indeed, there are many fans who were desperate to see her live but couldn’t get tickets. To witness such a theatrical presentation of her two song suites and to have them serve as much introduction to her work is just a cherished memory.

I am such a big Kate Bush fan now. I haven’t heard every album - I listen to a new one when I feel ready for something new from her. I’m savouring the moments, so to speak. Hounds of Love is one of my most favourite albums of all time and I never bore of it. Similarly, A Sky of Honey is just what poems or a painting would sound like if created on midsummers eve and bewitched into a song.

I am very disappointed she never released the dvd, but earlier this year I found a bootleg of the show I attended so I dip into that constantly. I adore her and her voice.
