Up Close & Personal With Toyah

POP icon and stage/screen actress Toyah comes to The Concert Room at Liverpool’s St George’s Hall with her Acoustic, Up Close & Personal show on Thursday 24th March 2016. The household name and TV presenter will put on her show as part of The Concert Room’s spring season. It will be a unique chance to experience Toyah in an intimate setting where music and stories take centre stage. The show comes in the form of Toyah performing an unplugged set of her well-loved hits and classic songs, alongside recalling stories from her colourful thirty-five-year career. From filming pop videos on horseback at 5am in the morning to acting alongside Katharine Hepburn and Laurence Olivier this is a show which lifts the lid on working in the entertainment business. Her film and stage credits include Calamity Jane, Cabaret, Peter Pan, Jubilee and Quadrophenia. Chris Wong and Colin Hinds, a talent duo of guitarists, will accompany Toyah on meticulous and melodic acoustic versions of the hits It’s A Mystery, Thunder In The Mountains, I Want To Be Free and Good Morning Universe, through to Sensational, a track used recently on a national TV advertising campaign starring Patsy Kensit . Alan Smith, General Manager at St George’s Hall, said: “It is a great delight to have the 80’s Icon Toyah Wilcox perform in the concert room of St George’s Hall. It’s no mystery why Toyah’s acoustic music and conversation will fit beautifully in the ornate concert room, forming the perfect backdrop to Toyah’s colourful career so far.” For further information, please visit www.stgeorgesliverpool.co.uk.
