Kim Wilde

Kim Wilde

For Christmas 2023, Kim Wilde is back with another Wilde Winter Acoustic Session – a collection of her popular Wilde Winter Songbook album tracks mixed with some of the most famous Christmas songs and of course, Kim’s biggest hits, all done in an intimate acoustic style.

Kim, her brother Ricky, niece Scarlett and guitarist Neil create a beautiful evening of Christmas fun and a unique opportunity to hear these songs in their rawest form.

These shows sell out fast, so come and enjoy the Christmas spirit with Kim and her acoustic band.

The daughter of '50s British pop singer Marty Wilde, Kim Wilde had several hits during the '80s. Initially, her synth-driven pop fit in with the new wave movement, but as the decade progressed, it became clear that her strength was mainstream pop. She continued to record into the 21st century, scoring the occasional hit, either in the dance or adult contemporary field.

In 1980, Wilde signed with producer Mickie Most's Rak Records, releasing her first single, "Kids in America," early in 1981. It climbed to number two on the British charts that spring, while her second single, "Chequered Love," made it into the Top Ten; her self-titled debut album performed as well as her singles.

Early in the new century, Wilde took part in the plentiful '80s revival tours alongside regrouped line-ups of the Human League and Five Star. A 2003 collaboration with Nena on a bilingual version of the German artist's 1984 hit "Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime" went to number one in both Austria and the Netherlands, and hit the Top Ten in numerous other countries, without seeing release in the U.K.

By 2021, Wilde was celebrating her 40th year as a performing artist with a lavish multi-format career retrospective titled Pop Don't Stop: Greatest Hits. Don't miss this chance to see a true pop legend at The Sub Rooms.
