Quite a lot of fuss about Kate Bush selling some tickets to her singing today. I have no axe to grind with Ms Bush. I like some of her stuff.
The problem is with the fuss and what it will result in. Hipster fucks making them a badge for knowing what’s what that they will be full of people who think it is somewhere to be seen rather than some place to be, chatting when Ms Bush is performing some seminal songs.
Those with the respect not to be talking will be holding up a giant phone to record her singing songs, creating videos that less than 2% of them will ever play back.
Those with neither the respect not to be talking nor the unwatched video making skills will be texting. A small minority will be actually paying attention and listening to every note and word.
One in six people at each concert will work for The Guardian.
