Charismatic, outspoken and impossible to categorise, Toyah Willcox is one of Britain’s iconic household names.
In a career spanning 30 years Toyah has had 13 top 40 singles, recorded 20 albums, written two books, appeared in over 40 stage plays, made 10 feature films and presented such diverse television programmes as “The Good Sex Guide” and “Songs Of Praise”.
And she is due to appear at The Apex, in Bury St Edmunds, early next month.
Musical success includes debut single “Victims of the Riddle” (number one in the independent charts) and six track EP “Sheep Farming in Barnet”, plus her album, “The Blue Meaning” and hit singles “It’s A Mystery”, “I Want to Be Free”, “Brave New World” and “Be Proud, Be Loud, Be Heard” and the platinum albums “Anthem” and “The Changeling .
Musically, Toyah has remained fresh and uncompromising with her popular, and somewhat raunchy, YouTube “Sunday Lockdown Lunch” and a recent hit album, “Posh Pop”.
Originally scheduled for June 2021, the “Electric Ladies of the 1980s” was a double headliner with Hazel O’Connor.
Unfortunately, due to ongoing health issues, Hazel is unable to join the Electric Ladies tour, however some of Hazel’s songs will be performed and a portion of the income from each show will going directly to Hazel to help towards her ongoing recovery.
Instead, Toyah will be joined on this special tour by new-wave pioneer Lene Lovich and 90’s indie rock chick, Saffron from Republica. Performing alongside their full band, each artist will perform their own set alongside some unique collaborations.
This hit packed retro fest will include such classics as “Thunder In The Mountains”, “Will You”, “Lucky Number”, “Ready To Go”, “Say When”, “Drop Dead Gorgeous” and “It’s A Mystery”.
Toyah, Lene Lovich and Saffron of Republica will play The Apex on Saturday, June at 11, 7.30pm.
