Singer Kim Wilde

Singer Kim Wilde says she’d love to collaborate with Snow Patrol. While Gary Lightbody lapped up the atmosphere at Connect, Kim was performing at Retrofest, and speaking backstage after her Saturday set, she said: “Snow Patrol covered my song I Am An Astronaut and I sang Chasing Cars on my last tour. I love that band, and although I’ve not met them I believe they were chuffed that I covered their song. I’d never say never to a collaboration.” Kim, 47, enjoyed the nostalgia fest and said: “I’ve never played at the same time as 10CC before, it was really special. I was chuffed to be on the same bill as them.”
