Toyah – Acoustic Up Close and Personal

Toyah Wilcox returns to Acapela Cardiff.

Household name, pop icon, TV presenter, and stage/screen actress (Calamity Jane, Cabaret, Peter Pan, Jubilee, Quadrophenia) Toyah comes to Acapela in June with her Acoustic, Up Close & Personal show.

This is a unique chance to experience Toyah in an intimate setting where music and stories take centre stage. This lively, entertaining and revealing 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.

A talented duo of guitarists, Chris Wong and Colin Hinds, 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.

Joining the above on this occasion is bass player Mike Nichols.

Over the years Mike has worked with many artists including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Joe Brown, Sam Brown, Mark Knopfler, Dennis Locorriere, Jools Holland, The Supremes, The Drifters, Opera North and the Novello Orchestra. He has worked in several major West End shows including Shrek, Avenue Q, Dirty Dancing, Grease, Les Miserables, Jersey Boys, Never Forget, Wicked, Sister Act, Shrek, School of Rock and Motown.
