(Prog) Kate Bush has spoken for the first time about her 2014 comeback shows and says she was "terrified" at the prospect of performing live again. Her run of 22 nights at London's Hammersmith's Apollo were Bush's first full live performances since 1979.

And she says she was particularly nervous about forgetting her lines midway through a song. Bush tells the BBC: "I was terrified. The idea of putting the show together was something that I found really interesting and really exciting. But to actually step into it was something that I had to really work hard on because I was terrified of doing live work as a performer again.

"I was really nervous every night as a performer, but had complete faith in everybody on the stage, everybody in the team, all the sound guys.

"The most difficult thing for me was to be continually in the now because I naturally tend to race ahead in my mind. I think maybe it's that kind of primeval thing where you're trying to think, 'Can I get to that tree before the tiger gets me? Will I be able to get up high enough?'" Read more here.
