Festival Details - "Kim Wilde"...
The UK's most successful female 80's pop star, Kim Wilde is heading out on her first UK Headline Tour in 35 years. She will be performing old songs as well as new ones from her upcoming album 'Here Come the Aliens'. Kim Wilde's return to recording isn't a comeback, but it does mark a fresh start in the iconic singer's extraordinary career. Proud of her past, but focused on the future, Kim has never stopped singing or selling out tours - she has played more shows in the past decade than ever before, finding fans in countries she never dreamed she'd visit and turning new generations on to her songs. When she walked in to the famous RAK Studios last year to begin recording 'Here Come The Aliens' (her first new album of original material to have a UK release since 1992), Kim felt instantly at home. Not only because RAK was where, in 1981, she recorded 'Kids In America' and 'Chequered Love', the seminal singles that made her famous at the age of 21, but because making music is what Kim has always done. Vocally, Kim has never sounded better, the result of a hectic gig and festival schedule that has taken Kim and her six-strong band around the world for the past decade, playing not only her classic '80s tracks, but the hits she has continued to enjoy throughout Europe, Scandinavia and Asia up to the present day. In fact, it's in Britain where Kim has been off the road the most. "I've played more in the past 15 years than I did in the first two decades of my career," says Kim, the UK's most successful female pop star of the 80s, whose early tours included opening for David Bowie and Michael Jackson. "My band and I have headlined several tours abroad, but this is the first one for almost 30 years at home. But I've had fantastic experiences here touring with Rewind and Let's Rock so our fans know that they have a very special place in my heart. I cannot wait to see them all up close and personal."
