Organizers contact ticket holders about "a late decision to film the show"

Kate Bush is apparently planning to release a DVD about her London comeback concerts.

The Guardian, citing Kate Bush News, reported that some fans were asked via email to change seats at London's Eventim Apollo venue to accommodate cameras during two of her 22 performances. The requests were sent to people with tickets for the Sept. 16 and Sept. 17 gigs, according to the report.

“Unfortunately, due to a late decision to film the show for a DVD release, we have had to relocate you from your original seat,” the Eventim customer care team explained in a note quoted by The Guardian.

Before her first comeback concert on Aug. 26, the 56-year-old had not done live performance in 12 years and not headlined a gig since 1979. Tickets for the 22-night comeback run in London sold out in 15 minutes.

The "Before the Dawn" shows have drawn rave reviews from critics and fans alike. Bush asked fans at the concerts not to take pictures or record videos of the gigs.

The buzz also boosted Bush on the U.K. album charts. She recently became the first female performer to have have eight albums in the top 40 albums chart.
