No, David Bowie was NOT on stage with Kate Bush last night

Madonna was there too. And Bjork.

LAST NIGHT SAW the return of Kate Bush to the live stage for the first time in 35 years… and she nailed it.

A five star review from The Guardian (WARNING: These reviews contain spoilers of sorts, in case you’re heading along to one of the London gigs, which several of the team are), a five star review from The Independent, a four star review from The Telegraph (we can only assume they were standing beside a farter), and reports of the Apollo bursting at the seams with celebrity fans.

But it was presenter and journalist Danny Baker who set the Bowie rumour mill earlier yesterday evening:

Baker’s follow up tweet should have set a few alarm bells ringing (he was playing on the news that Bush has asked fans not to take photos or video footage of the Apollo gigs):

And then there was this…

In fact, Baker wasn’t even at the Kate Bush gig, he was watching the Man United v MK Dons match.

Didn’t stop the hilariously trolling tweets though:

The low rumbling of the “will he, won’t he” Bowie rumours were helped along by the Chinese whispering about his actual attendance at the gig, along with some other well-known names.

But what of the gig itself? Did it live up to the hype? Did anyone take pictures? WHERE IS DAVID BOWIE?

So… it was good then. And nobody took pictures. And David Bowie’s whereabouts remain unknown.

Just another 21 gigs to go.
