The star will perform live to kick off a 22-show run at the Hammersmith Apollo in west London - the same venue where she effectively retired from live performances after six weeks on the road in 1979.

Tickets for the 56-year-old's comeback gigs sold out in less than 15 minutes after they were announced in March. In a statement on her website, the singer said:

It would mean a great deal to me if you would please refrain from taking photos or filming during the shows. I very much want to have contact with you as an audience, not with iphones, ipads or cameras.

I know it's a lot to ask but it would allow us to all share in the experience together.
