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 Mike Nichols including stunning, acoustic arrangements of the hits It’s A Mystery, Thunder In The Mountains, I Want To Be Free and Good Morning Universe.
2018 sees a major year of celebration or Toyah as she celebrates her 60th birthday and 40th anniversary of her music career. Her 1987 album Desire will be issued as a new limited edition translucent red vinyl LP on 21 April for Record Store Day 2018.
