Toyah has confirmed a special autumn 2012 tour, which will celebrate the 30th anniversary of "The Changeling", & "Warrior Rock", following a highly acclaimed run of spring dates which saw five-star reviews and sold out shows.
The Changeling Resurrection II Autumn 2012 Tour opens on 19 September in Middlesbrough and will play Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, Redhill, King's Lynn, Bridport, St.Alban's, London and Brighton. With brand new images created especially for the tour and material not performed in thirty years, this is a true celebration and re-interpretation of one of Toyah finest albums alongside hit singles.
THE CHANGELING, often cited as the beginning of goth, was produced by legendary record producer Steve Lillywhite. Its accompanying tour of 1982 produced the live album WARRIOR ROCK which has been critically acclaimed as one of the best of all live albums because of its powerful sound.
Following up the acclaimed 2011 From Sheep Farming To Anthem Tour, which saw Toyah perform songs from her first three albums in the original iconic 80s costumes, comes a brand new live Toyah show. Celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of The Changeling, Toyah & her full band, will perform a selection of songs from the album alongside classic material as heard on the Warrior Rock live album. THE CHANGELING RESURRECTION II is a treat for Toyah diehards, 1980s fans & goth/rock music lovers………. not to be missed.
The tour will wrap up on Saturday 3 November 2012 at Brighton Concorde 2 in a special show. The Changeling Resurrection II – Rewound & Extended will act as a finale to the tour at the same venue it began at in April. This date will include an extended Toyah set with 15-20mins extra material featuring selections from Sheep Farming To Anthem.
