Fans desperate to see Kate Bush make her live comeback may have to pay out £1,500 after tickets sold out instantly.
Tickets for the 22-date tours were originally priced from £49 but they sold out in just 15 minutes this morning with many now on sale online at inflated prices.
One fan, writing on Twitter as @kankurette, said: "I love Kate Bush but I am not paying out the nose to see her. I have my limits."
Simon Presswell, managing director of Ticketmaster UK, said many fans were left disappointed as a result of the phenomenal demand with over 65,000 fans looking for tickets on the company's website at its peak.
"After a 35 year wait several thousand lucky fans will be seeing Kate Bush perform live, but despite playing 22 dates demand has significantly exceeded the number of tickets available so regrettably a number of fans will be left disappointed," he added.
Kate Bush has said she is "completely overwhelmed" by the response to her shows after tickets sold out in under 15 minutes.
The singer said: "I'm completely overwhelmed by the response to the shows. Thank you so much to everyone. Looking forward to seeing you all later this year".
The 55-year-old’s Before The Dawn gigs at London’s Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith marks the singer's first live comeback since she retired from touring in 1979.
Tickets for Kate Bush's live comeback in London have sold out in less than 15 minutes.
Demand for tickets was so high that the singer's own website crashed along with some of the ticket sellers as fans rushed online to buy them.
The singer is set to return to the stage for the first time in 35 years after she effectively retired from live performances in 1979 just six weeks into her first tour.
The 55-year-old's PR company told fans on Twitter: "Tickets for all 22 @KateBushMusic dates sold out in less than 15 minutes."
