March 22 (UPI) -- Ticket sales for Kate Bush's first concerts in 35 year crashed the British singer-songwriter's website Friday.

The "Wuthering Heights" singer announced Friday she's playing 15 shows in a performance called Before the Dawn.

The performances are all scheduled to take place in August and September at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, which is where she last performed May 14, 1979 when it was still called the Odeon.

She said she stayed away from performing for so long simply because she preferred studio work. She also reportedly wanted to wait until her son was 16 before she returned to the stage.

Even though tickets for the shows don't go on sale until Friday, her announcement drove fans to her website, crashing it.
