Eighties pop icon Toyah Willcox is to perform in a North-east town, playing two gigs in two nights. The former punk princess is to take the stage at Stonehaven Town Hall on September 18 and 19.

The event is being organised by music shop owner Chris Stirk. He said: “These revival gigs usually turn out to be great nights out with the acts giving their all and the crowd bopping along. “Toyah is a uniquely gifted performer. She is charismatic, outspoken and one of Britain’s iconic household names. She is an award- winning rock legend, as well as a much-loved actress and music composer and we are delighted she is the latest big act to come to Stonehaven.”

Chris was keen to add any money made from the concerts goes into community projects , and at the end of the year any surplus funds go to a local charity. Toyah had hit singles It’s A Mystery, I Want to Be Free, Brave New World and Be Proud, Be Loud (Be Heard). Tickets are available from Ma Simpson’s music shop in Stonehaven.
