No reason to post this really, I just love it and not sure how well known it is, and it popped up during a recent YouTube rabbit hole adventure.
In 1987 Kate Bush (not a frequent live performer at the best of times) sang Running Up That Hill live at a comedy festival for Amnesty International, that Secret Policeman’s Ball thing. And she was joined by David Gilmour on guitar and backing vocals.
I think it’s a spine tingling performance. It takes everything that was so wrong about the 80s (big hair, Miami Vice jackets, guitars with no headstocks for gawd sake) and makes something live and vital with them. Plus it’s a nice reminder to millenials that this song was a Big Thing before Stranger Things.
