KIM WILDE THE FORUM, BATH

GET CAPE. WEAR CAPE. FLY… KIM WILDE RAIDS RICK WAKEMAN’S DRESSING UP BOX FOR A CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH THE WEST COUNTRY

4 APRIL

Kim Wilde must be mightily heartened by the rapturous reception being afforded to her new album, Here Come The Aliens. While she’s always gone down a storm at retro festival appearances, her first collection of wholly original material in eight years has given her solo career a significant boost.

Quite rightly she’s built her current setlist around the new record. There are no apologetic half-hearted inclusions tucked away before the nailed-on crowd-pleasers, this latest touring show mines the rich seam of fresh material to the maximum.

A much tougher sounding proposition than you’d expect on paper, her live band throw in plenty of ‘rawk’ poses and could no doubt make a mean Metallica tribute act if push came to shove. They burst out of the blocks here with the all-guns blazing newie Stereo Shot and her classic new wavy single from 1981, Water On Glass. Never Trust A Stranger wins a massive cheer, an old friend, with an instantly hooky chorus, as the synths finally get a look in.

“Hope you don’t mind that I didn’t dress up tonight,” Wilde deadpans early on, resplendent in a silver tasselled jacket and studded black leather jumpsuit. Who knows, perhaps she does actually do the Waitrose weekly ‘big shop’ in it.
