Carol Decker of T’pau, Toyah Willcox, Johnny Hates Jazz and Nik Kershaw all wow at Newark Festival in the castle grounds

The eighties were reborn against the fantastic backdrop of Newark Castle last night. The castle rocked and rolled to some of the best entertainers of the era. Hundreds enjoyed the relaxed and intimate affair as the hits were pelted out from the stage.

Carol Decker of T’pau fame kicked off a great night with the crowd dispensing with their picnic chairs and on their feet.

Then followed Toyah Willcox whose energy and zest for life hasn’t diminished one iota.

At The Barrier: Cropredy 2023 – Live Review

August 29th, 2023

Fairport’s Cropredy Convention 2023: Live Review

Fairport’s Cropredy Convention adds another year to its long list of great bills and festivals. It really is a festival to cherish.

Toyah and Robert Fripp
It was back in 2015 that Toyah Wilcox last had the Cropredy stage to herself. She wowed us then, and -by heck – she certainly delivered the goods this year! Armed with a top-notch band, led, of course by husband Robert Fripp, figurehead of the mighty King Crimson, she left us breathless – and glamour-struck as she blasted through set of favourites from the couple’s hilarious – some might even say ‘notorious’ Sunday Lunch podcast series. The band was on top form, and Toyah had the whole field captivated as she rocked, twirled, enchanted and, of course, sang her way through a set that was thoroughly familiar and contained something for absolutely everyone.

NME: Toyah & Robert Cover Heroes at Glastonbury 2023

June 30th, 2023

Watch Toyah and Robert cover ‘Heroes’ by David Bowie at Glastonbury 2023

The King Crimson guitarist featured on the original recording

Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp performed a cover of David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ at their recent set at Glastonbury.

The married couple — who both have extensive music careers and came together to form a musical duo in 2020 — took to the stage on Sunday (June 25), and performed renditions of some of their favourite classic rock hits.

A highlight of the set came with their cover of a David Bowie classic, as they put their own spin on his 1977 fan favourite, ‘Heroes’. For the performance, Willcox took the microphone and handled the vocals, while Fripp remained seated and played the guitar through the track.

Toyah and Robert Fripp reviewed!
Acoustic stage, 4.10pm

Fresh from their popular pandemic covers series, husband-and-wife duo Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp appear on the misleadingly named Acoustic stage for a set of songs by artists that either the pop star or the King Crimson guitarist have worked with. Willcox, 65 and lithe in a glossy red catsuit, beckons their six-piece, besuited band (with Fripp front and center) to open with a fiery version of her hit Thunder in the Mountains. “We thought we were in the heavy metal tent, I’m really sorry,” she says afterwards, before shouting out her Birmingham hometown and fellow Brummies Black Sabbath – Continue…

Classic Rock: Robert & Toyah… On Tour!

June 21st, 2023

If you were wondering what Robert Fripp and Toyah are like on tour, wonder no more

Much to humanity’s delight, pro-shot footage of Robert Fripp and Toyah performing Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell at the Isle Of Wight festival has emerged

Over the last few years, Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox have built a new, enthusiastic and unexpected audience, with the entire internet seemingly in thrall to their long-running-although-currently-dormant series of Sunday Lunch videos.

Could they cut it on the road? That was surely the question on everyone’s lips when the frisky duo announced a series of ‘Rock Party’ dates, during which they’d perform many of the songs that have so enriched our lives.

In late May the first audiences bore witness to the pair’s live antics, as the King Crimson man and his bride played a pair of local shows at Worcester’s Huntingdon Hall. Amongst the songs performed were Metallica’s Enter Sandman, Black Sabbath’s Paranoid, ZZ Top’s Sharp Dressed Man, and, perhaps most remarkably, Kashmir by Led Zeppelin.

YouTube hits Toyah and Fripp at Isle of Wight Festival in Photos

The husband and wife musical partnership of Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp — both from strangely different but equally experimental musical backgrounds — performed their popular Sunday Lunch Live show in the Big Top.

It was enjoyed by the musically nostalgic and those of younger generations perhaps searching for their own musical roots to follow.

Sunday’s afternoon show was, as you would expect with Fripp, musically precise, while Toyah showed infectious, punk-rooted enthusiasm with her performance.

She performed a set which included some of her solo classics, It’s a Mystery and I Want to Be Free, together with some great pop standards, such as Bowie’s Heroes and Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell.
