Pop Icon Kim Wilde
“Kids in America”, “Cambodia”, “Keep me hanging on” or “You came” – the opening beats of her songs already make listeners casually tap with their feet. The unmistakable sound of Kim Wilde is synth-pop at its best. The young Brit struck a chord in her era, and no less than the youth of an entire generation grew up with her music. Kim Wilde is an icon of modern musical history and, now as then, she inspires a global audience with a good dose of musical nostalgia. Ten years ago, the singer surprised audiences with her successful comeback with fellow star Nena at her side and the German-English remake of her massive hit “Irgendwie, Irgendwo, Irgendwann – Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime” (2003). Her fans were overjoyed. Since then, she has produced several albums including the chart-topper “Come Out and Play” (2010), performed at a number of live concerts and toured at festivals throughout Europe. Yet there is no trace of the cool understatement of the former queen of pop. With a 40-strong orchestra and a gospel choir or rock band in tow, this fully matured artist puts the pedal to the metal and creates emotional highlights with covers of her own favourite songs from artists ranging from The Cure to David Bowie. In March 2014, Kim travelled to Berlin for the first show of her Rock Meets Classic Arena Tour, followed by 20 appearances in Germany, Austria and Switzerland where she performed with artists including rock legend Alice Cooper.
Golf cruise – dreamlike courses on Europe’s western coast
Mon 01.06 – Honfleur – New Golf Barriere Deauville
The three 9-hole courses created by Tom Simpson and Sir Henry Cotton feature wide fairways and tricky bunkers, and are among the top courses in France.
Tue 02.06 – Portsmouth – Hayling GC
The course was designed in 1883 and has been continually modernised with great passion for detail ever since. Besides the fairways, the wind conditions make for an exciting challenge.
Wed 03.06 – St. Peter Port – La Grande Mare (additional course)
This parkland course borders the sandy beach of Vazon Bay. Situated right on the western coast of Guernsey, play a round against the majestic backdrop of the English Channel.
Thu 04.06 – St.-Malo – St.-Malo GC
Set in ancient hunting grounds in Brittany, this idyllic course designed by Hubert Chesneau is appealing thanks to its many water hazards and gentle slopes.
Sun 07.06 – Bordeaux – Golf du Medoc
A well-designed top course in the famous wine region – a technical challenge for all skill levels.
