Kim Wilde And Tony Hadley Perform World's Highest Gig

Tags: Kim Wilde - Tony Hadley

Kim Wilde and Tony Hadley didn’t have much in common, apart from the fact that they were both pop stars in the 1980’s, however they can now add another bond between them – the pair have just set the record for the highest ever gig!

Now before you start sniggering and asking whether Snoop Dogg was performing that with them, we should point out that this was literally the highest gig. They performed it in a jumbo jet, and they achieved it with a host of other, um, stars, including Bananarama and Go West. Performing at 42,080 feet, they performed a 22 and a half minute set with musical instruments. Wilde played ‘You Came,’ ‘You Keep Me Hangin’ On’ and her biggest hit ‘Kids In America’, whilst Hadley performed ‘True,’ ‘Gold’ and a cover of Queen’s ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’. As NME pointed out, Wilde’s been popping up quite regularly on public transport to perform shows, having played a gig on a tube at the end of last year.

In a statement, Wilde said "I'm becoming an old hand at performing on public transport, in fact I'm getting a bit of a taste for it, so when British Airways asked me to play at 43,000ft I simply couldn't resist. It was great fun and I'm proud to have been a part of it."
