The pop icon from the 'good old eighties' is far from being finished.
In collaboration with Poppodium Grenswerk we present Kim Wilde live in De Maaspoort!
Rock diva Kim Wilde is 'unstoppable'! She will be sixty years old on 18 November 2020, right in the middle of her Dutch Greatest Hits Tour. A better moment for an anthology of top songs from her career, which has already spanned four decades, is hardly conceivable. A career that, after a break in the 90s, experienced a remarkable rebirth. The most recent feat is the European tour 'Here come the aliens' in 2019, in honour of the album of the same name that she released a year earlier. The Dutch Kim Wilde fans were also at her feet during that tour and confirmed with their frenzied ovations that the pop icon from the 'good old eighties' is far from being finished.
Kim Wilde's musical career got off to a stormy start in 1981 when she scored an instant global hit with 'Kids in America'. More 'New Wave' fireworks followed, such as the classics 'Never trust a stranger', 'Cambodia', 'You keep me hangin' on', 'You came' and the compelling 'Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime', which she sang together with the German rock artist Nena. Many of the gems from her repertoire of 14 studio albums and over 30 million record sales will be heard on the Greatest Hits Tour. But also newer work from her latest 'Here Come The Aliens' album. The songs 'Pop Don't Stop', 'Kandy Krush' and 'Birthday' quickly became hits on the international radio charts after the release of the album. A sign that among the new generations of pop artists of the 21st century, Kim Wilde is still a phenomenon in the music world!
