Looks like Kate Bush might have more on her mind than just a triumphant return to the stage after her three-decade hiatus. Though Kate has blessed UK audiences with a return to the stage, and recently broke some UK chart records, she seems to have some real estate problems on her hands.
According to NME, the singer's house appears to be creeping its way down the cliffside in Devon County, England. Devon county officials have reportedly warned the singer that she needs to invest in re-enforcements or else the end is nigh for her 5-bedroom, 2.5 million pound estate. A landslide last year left her neighbor's property resting within inches of the 88-foot drop-off, leaving Bush's home next in line.
"If you live there you can either accept it and let your house fall into the sea, or you can take action to prevent further damage, although that can cost hundreds of thousands," said Devon County Council's Steve Gardner. "You can attach netting to the cliff face, or another option is spraying it with concrete, although these are very expensive and not something the council would pay for." That's not the greatest news.
On a happier note, the '80s songstress just kicked off her 22-date sold-out residency at London’s Eventim Apollo after spending 35 years in the dark, and Consequence of Sound reported her setlist is chock full of classic sounds, including the like of "Hounds of Love", "Running Up That Hill," "Joanni" and "The Ninth Wave."
Of course, she probably never bargained on the day "Running Up That Hill" would become so literal.
