Kim Wilde has come to the Capitol in Hannover for another comeback. This time she want to showcase old Wilde hits plus cover versions of other pop giants. Karin Vera Schmidt has listened to her.

Many old fans have waited for this evening like a date with a childhood sweetheart. Okay, the British beauty has gained a little weight and has put on many colours. But she is in a good mood, not eccentric and promises for this evening a “love affair with pop music”. That’s exactly what it is. No rock, no jazz, nothing difficult, just pop music. Exactly what you’d expect from the 51 year old. Nearly 800 people came to the Capitol, and they were not disappointed.
