Bad Tour

In 1988, Kim Wilde was asked to support Michael Jackson during the European leg of his ‘Bad’ tour. After she agreed, this resulted in a four month, 33 date tour across Europe, starting on 23 May 1988 at the Flaminio Stadium in Rome (Italy) and ending on 11 September 1988 at the Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool (UK). Eight more tour dates were opened by Taylor Dayne instead of Kim Wilde (between 5 and 23 August). A combined total of almost 2 million people attended the concerts that were opened by Kim Wilde.

Kim Wilde’s show lasted for approximately 40 minutes and featured the songs:

Chequered Love, You Came, View From a Bridge, The Second Time, Love in the Natural Way, Never Trust a Stranger, Cambodia, Hey Mister Heartache, Kids in America and You Keep Me Hangin’ On. In Paris, Premiere Rencontre was added to the setlist and in London she performed Another Step (Closer To You) with Junior instead of ‘Never Trust A Stranger’.
