Lancashire Telegraph: Review: Toyah @ Blackburn

June 29th, 2017

lanctel17aREVIEW: Toyah, King George’s Hall, Blackburn

Somehow she’s 59, but looks amazing and her energy on a sweaty Saturday night in Blackburn never once faltered.

gazettelive16aFrom Toyah to Duzza – the stars heading to the Longlands in 2017

She went down a storm and ate pie and peas at a Guisborough cafe last time she was here. Now 1980s pop icon Toyah is heading our way again – one of a raft of music and football stars scheduled to play Middlesbrough’s Longlands Club.

The “It’s A Mystery” star turned heads last July when she popped in for lunch at Guisborough’s Pie in the Sky, ahead of a gig at the Marton Road venue. And after a massive night last year, the punk princess has confirmed a return visit to The Longlands on June 10.
