Last week, Kate Bush announced her first set of concerts in 35 years. The promotional image, which featured Kate in the ocean with a life vest, was unfortunately released during the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Social media was quick to find fault, and Kate quickly apologized and replaced the image on her website. Fans came to her defense, pointing out that the image referred to the concept suite The Ninth Wave, the second side of her fifth album, Hounds of Love. The set of songs, referencing both the painting The Ninth Wave by Ivan Aivazovsky as well as Tennyson's Idylls of the King. The controversy apparently did not dissuade fans from the upcoming concerts, which sold out today within 15 minutes.
