The Tour of Life is the only ever tour by the British singer/songwriter Kate Bush. During the 1979 tour, Bush became the first ever singer to use a wireless headset radio microphone on stage, which enabled her to incorporate extensive dance routines into her live shows.

A number of reasons have been suggested as to why she subsequently abandoned touring, among them her reputed need to be in total control of the final product, which is incompatible with live stage performance, a rumour of a crippling fear of flying, cite web | last = Littlejohn | first = Maureen | authorlink = | coauthors = | title = The Sensual Woman | work = | publisher = Network magazine | date = | url = http://gaffa.org/reaching/i90_net.html | format = | doi = | accessdate = 2007-04-03 ] and the suggestion that the death of 21-year-old Bill Duffield severely affected her. Duffield, her lighting director, was killed in an accident during her 2 April concert at Poole Arts Centre. cite web|last = | first =| authorlink =| coauthors =| title = Kate Bush - Singer-songwriter| work =|publisher =BBC| date =2005-02-04| url = http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/A3502568|format =| doi =| accessdate = 2007-04-04 ] Bush held a benefit concert on 12 May, with Peter Gabriel and Steve Harley at London's Hammersmith Odeon for his family.
