Three Tours From Toyah!

April 26th, 2013

Toyah tweeted the other day that the Autumn dates (marking the 30th anniversary of the Love Is The Law album and tour) will be announced soon. Now seems as good a time as any to take a look back at the other recent anniversary Toyah tours. Click on each of the below to view numerous photos from each tour.

The Changeling Resurrection/II: Relive the Tours

November 7th, 2012

A year of celebrating Toyah’s 1982 masterpiece ‘The Changeling’ has now ended. Two UK tours, The Changeling Resurrection last Spring and, the just completed, The Changeling Resurrection II saw Toyah embrace the album for the first time in 30 years. Click below to revisit each tour by browsing numerous news posts about both. There are also dedicated TCR and TCRII pages at Dreamscape’s Gallery. (Thanks to Kevin McNamara & Damon King – and everyone else too – for the amazing photos throughout the tours)

Official Toyah: Monthly Online Live Track #7

September 9th, 2012

The seventh monthly online live track has been added to Toyah’s official website. It’s the mighty ‘Bird in Flight’, recorded live at the Ruby Lounge, Manchester in April of this year, on ‘The Changeling Resurrection’ Spring tour.

Toyah’s official website will be offering visitors exclusive live tracks each month as ‘The Changeling Resurrection II’ tour approaches. At the beginning of each month an exclusive live track recorded from Toyah’s extensive 2011 tour dates will feature on the Gigs page.

The live tracks will be available to listen to for a limited time only with a new track replacing it each month. These live tracks are a taster for a special live album release planned for digital release in autumn/winter of 2012.

Aural Sculptors: Toyah 30 Years Ago!!

May 6th, 2012

I have a couple of anniversary posts for tonight, but I thought I’d start with this one, which is of no real relevance to anyone but me. Sorry!

Tonight, Toyah is playing down the road (10 minutes walk) in Bishops Stortford. The occasion is ‘The Changeling The Resurrection 2012 – Celebrating The 30th Anniversary of The Changeling and Warrior Rock (Toyah On Tour)’

This made me smile, seeing Toyah was one of my first gigs. Brighton Centre 29th June 1982. This was the original Changeling tour.

I loved ‘Anthem’ at the time, but even moreso the more punky ‘Sheep Farming In Barnet’, but this was my first opportunity to see the band. I was 13 and a bit wee!
