Toyah and Hazel O’Connor to bring their Electric Ladies of the 80s tour to Dorset

Innovators of post punk and new wave during their eighties heyday, much-loved artists, Toyah, 61, and Hazel O’Connor, 64, are delighted to join forces to bring forth their new tour, Electric Ladies of the 80s.

It calls in at the Tivoli, Wimborne, on April 18.

Two of the most recognisable artists of the modern era, Toyah and Hazel have a combined back catalogue of around 60 albums as well as a number of television and film credits between them dating back to the late seventies.

Initially meeting when auditioning for Breaking Glass in 1980, alongside Kate Bush, the careers of the two musicians have ran somewhat parallel without actually crossing paths, until now.

Speaking of their finally hitting the road together Hazel giggled: “Toyah and I, we just work together, although it’s taken us forty years to do this. We finally get the opportunity to do it and it’s great; I always love watching her perform, she’s certainly the roadmap of my life and her music has always been a part of it.”

Two Eighties icons have finally teamed up to tour together for the first time.

The punk pair will take their Electric Ladies Of The 80s tour on the road in April.

Toyah, 61, said: “I think it’s about 40 years in the making. We have always spoken to each other about doing it over the 40 years of knowing each other, and now it’s happening.”

Toyah hit the big time in 1976 with a role in the BBC play Glitter. Since then she has forged parallel careers as an actress and a singer.

As two of the leading ladies of the punk and new wave movements, Toyah and Hazel’s paths were intertwined right from the very start. And music lovers were often fans of both artists’ material.
