Tickets for Kate Bush’s first concerts after 35 years of absence have sold out in less than 15 minutes.
Tickets for the 22 dates at London’s Hammersmith Apollo went on sale at 09:30 GMT on Friday morning.
Kate Bush, 55, said she was “completely overwhelmed by the response”.
“Thank you so much to everyone,” the singer added.
The Before the Dawn concerts, which take place this August and September, mark Kate Bush’s first return to the stage since The Tour Of Life in 1979.

Demand was so high that Kate Bush’s own website, as well as some ticket-selling sites, crashed as people tried to log on.
Tickets with a face value of £135 ($215) were already being offered on sale on secondary ticketing sites for more than £1000 ($1,500).
Kate Bush was just 20 when she completed her one and only tour, a year after topping the charts with Wuthering Heights.
The six-week tour, which travelled around Britain and mainland Europe, ended at the Hammersmith Odeon – now the Hammersmith Apollo.
Following the initial announcement of 15 dates last week, seven more dates were added in response to “massive pre-sale demand”.
Kate Bush, whose hits include Running Up That Hill and Babooshka, last released an album in 2011 – 50 Words For Snow.
The Rolling Stones tickets for the band’s Hyde Park concert in July sold out in just five minutes.
Despite fans voicing concerns about the high cost of admission, which started at £95 ($150), the 65,000 tickets for Hyde Park gig went within minutes of being put on general release on Friday morning.
AEG Live promoter Rob Hallett said the response had been “incredible”.
Rob Hallett said: “We sold 65,000 tickets in the speed the system could handle it. If the system could handle it in seconds, we would have probably sold out in seconds.”

Tickets cost £95, although there were hospitality packages for sale at up to £299, but Rob Hallett said basic ticket-holders would not lose out.
He said: “The band wanted the regular ticket-holders to be right at the front of the stage staring at the whites of their eyes, not 200 yards away.
“The people who have coughed up for hospitality packages will get looked after in a way they have never known before.
“But when the doors open, if you can run faster than the next guy, it will be like any other general admission gig. You will get down front.”
The Rolling Stones will headline the Hyde Park gig in July, almost 44 years to the day they played a famous free concert in the central London park.
The band will also headline Glastonbury and play a north American tour later this year.
The Rolling Stones first ever concert in Hyde Park, which was on 5 July 1969, was just two days after the death of founder member Brian Jones and marked the live debut of his replacement guitarist, Mick Taylor.
Guitarist Keith Richards said he hoped there would be “some emotion involved” in the new gig.
