Wild Kim

Still on… Kim Wilde’s first British tour, and Marty’s little girl is proving herself Britain’s brightest, most exciting girl singer.

“I’m petrified”, Kim told me before she went on stage at Bristol’s Colston Hall.

But before she had finished singing her first song – Chequered Love – the fans were on their feet dancing and cheering. And they stayed there as Kim powered through 90 minutes of high-voltage. At a celebration party later, she told me: “I just can’t wait to get back on stage and do it again”.
