From punk princess to cult stage actress to high priestess of TV, TOYAH WILLCOX is a uniquely gifted performer and an inextinguishable flame. Charismatic, outspoken and impossible to categorise, she is one of Britain’s iconic household names – an award-winning rock legend as well as a much-loved stage/screen actress and music composer.
In a career spanning over 40 years Toyah has amassed thirteen top 40 singles, recorded twenty-four albums, written two books, appeared in over forty stage plays, acted in twenty feature films and presented hundreds of television programmes.
This is a unique chance to experience Toyah up close and personal. A lively unplugged/storytellers style gig, it will include Toyah performing an acoustic set of her loved hit singles and classic songs, alongside recalling stories from her colourful, forty year career. Toyah will be performing alongside musicians Chris Wong and Colin Hinds including stunning, acoustic arrangements of the hits It’s A Mystery, Thunder In The Mountains, I Want To Be Free and Good Morning Universe.
The year 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of her music career as Toyah released her first ever single and album studio in 1979. This concert –with her acoustic band– will be a celebratory retrospective including hit singles, album classics and songs from her new album In The Court Of The Crimson Queen which charted in the top 40 in April 2019,.
