LONDON (AFP) - British pop singer Kate Bush makes her long-awaited return to the stage on Tuesday, 35 years after ending her only previous live tour at the same London venue.

Tickets for the 56-year-old's 22 shows at the Hammersmith Apollo, where Bush last performed in 1979, sold out in 15 minutes when they went on sale in March as fans clamoured to be part of history.

Eleven of her albums have risen into this week's Top 100 albums chart for sales, with her greatest hits collection "The Whole Story" reaching number eight, according to OfficialCharts.com.

Her most recent release - "50 Words Of Snow" - also saw the biggest week on week percentage increase of 810 percent and has sold 155,000 copies so far, the charts company said.
