Benji performs 'I am an astronaut' in Hamburg

Date

A live performance of Ricky Wilde's 1972 song 'I am an astronaut' by Benji in Hamburg has been published online - including an introduction by Kim and Ricky!

You may recall that Wilde Life reported that Benji and the Astronauts covered 'I am an astronaut' back in December 2014. The video that was launched back then already featured Jeff Wayne and Alan Parsons. The track features music contributions by Ricky, Martyn Ware and Vince Clarke among others.

For Kim Wilde fans, the live performance last Sunday was possibly even more interesting, as Benji had recorded a short introduction for the song together with Kim and Rick while they were in Hamburg. The introduction was shown at the start of his live appearance at the Hamburg Planetarium. You can watch the video of that entire performance below.

There are plans to release the song on record. More details about that here on Wilde Life when we get them.
