Live Music from 2014 London Concert Series on 4LP Box Set!

In March 2014 Kate Bush announced plans to perform 15 shows in London in August and September that year, her first live shows since 1979. The shows sold out so quickly that a further 7 were immediately added, with all shows selling out in 15 minutes. Kate's website crashed with the demand. "Before the Dawn" was recorded during the incredible run of 22 sold-out shows performed by Kate at London's Hammersmith Apollo in 2014.

The first night of the shows prompted a complete media frenzy with the Evening Standard declaring that the show was "an extraordinary mix of magical ideas, stunning visuals, attention to detail and remarkable music - she was so obviously, so unambiguously brilliant, it made last night something to tell the grandchildren about." Later that year the show won the special Editor's award at the highly prestigious London Theatre Awards, the only contemporary music show to do so.

The album was produced by Kate Bush. Nothing on the record was re-recorded or overdubbed.

What the critics said about 'Before The Dawn':

"The most influential and respected British female artist of the last 40 years - 'Before The Dawn' is remarkable" - The Guardian

"Bush's return to the stage is a staggering triumph" - Metro

"British music's most significant female artist." - Evening Standard

"Some powerful magic has restored Kate Bush to us." - Observer

"A triumphant return by one of our greatest, most original and influential music stars." - The Sun

"Stunning, undoubtedly the most ambitious and genuinely moving piece of theatrical pop ever seen on a British stage". - The Independent

"This visionary performance is worlds apart" - The Times

"Throughout the album the pristine-sounding vinyl impressed me with its ability to capture the energy of a live show, including a forceful but clean lowe end that turly seemed concert-like. Before the Dawn... now joins the list of memorable live albums with good sound, stylish packaging, and historic performances." - Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound, April 2017, 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sonics
