Kim Wilde

Festivals 2018

Kim Wilde was born in Chiswick, West London to legendary 1950’s British Rock’n’Roll singer Marty Wilde and his wife Joyce - a member of the singing group, The Vernons Girls. Her first single release, ‘Kids In America’ in 1981, was a worldwide hit paving the way for a recording career which yielded ten albums and in excess of thirty singles, bringing success in every major record market and sales of 10 million and 20 million respectively. Single successes included ‘Chequered Love’, ‘Water On Glass’, ‘Cambodia’, ‘View FromA Bridge’, ‘You Keep Me Hangin’ On’ - a worldwide success and a number one in the USA - ‘Another Step (Closer To You)’ (a duet with Junior Giscombe), ‘You Came’, ‘Never Trust A Stranger’ and ‘Four Letter Word’. In 1983 Kim was voted Best British Female Singer at the BPI Awards, while “live” highlights include performing to over 2 million people on a five month European stadium tour with Michael Jackson in 1988, and supporting David Bowie across Europe on his 1990 Greatest Hits Tour. A flirtation with the world of horticulture led to the publication of two books, numerous gardening columns and yielded a Gold Medal and Best in Show in 2005 at The Chelsea Flower Show After a huge hit duet single with the German vocalist, Nena, in 2003 Kim was persuaded to make a new solo album and, having signed to EMI Germany in 2005 she enjoyed a Top 20 Album (‘Never Say Never’) and single (‘You Came 2006’) in the summer of 2006. In 2007 she took this project “on the road”, performing over 50 live concerts – including two solo tours - with dates in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Holland and Denmark and numerous Festival appearances across Europe. In December 2008 Kim appeared alongside Robin Gibb, Tears For Fears and 10cc – with a 40 piece orchestra and the Angels of Harlem Gospel Choir - in 20 arena shows for the annual ‘Night Of The Proms’ tour in Germany, and she completed another solo European Tour in April 2009. In September 2008 Kim was signed up by the UK’s number one London commercial radio station, Magic 105.4; over four years later she still presents a weekly show, “Secret Songs” every Sunday from 10am-2pm. Kim’s first album of entirely new and original recordings in 15 years, ‘Come Out & Play’, was released across Continental Europe in September 2010 and attained Top Ten status in Germany and Switzerland and the ‘Come Out & Play Live’ Tour performed to packed houses in February-March 2011. A new album, ‘Snapshots’, comprising cover versions of Kim’s favourite songs from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and noughties was released in late 2011. Again a Top 20 album, Kim took the ‘Snapshots & Greatest Hits’ show on the road in 2012. 2013 had seen a number of new recording projects take ‘centre stage’, along with the repackaging and re-release of a collector’s bonus edition of Kim’s album “Close”, which celebrates it’s 25th Birthday later this year. In 2016 the fans can look forward to new exciting upcoming projects.
