PETALING JAYA - Veteran pop diva Kate Bush has issued a statement apologising for any misconceptions over a concert poster that pictures her as a victim lost at sea.
Bush who is returning to the stage soon after a 35-year absence said in a statement published on her official website (katebush.com) that "the image that was chosen to advertise the shows originates from a conceptual piece called The Ninth Wave that was released in 1985. It is about a woman who is lost at sea but is rescued in the end."
The singer, who is best known for hit songs Wuthering Heights, The Man with the Child in his Eyes and Running Up That Hill, clarified that the photo for the poster was shot some months ago.
"The timing is really unfortunate. There is absolutely no connection with the current tragedy that is heading the news and I apologise from the bottom of my heart if this has in any way upset or at all offended anyone."
