The Devil Queen in South Shields
This picture is mainly for the fans, many of whom have been arriving from one of the Toyah Willcox fans’ sites Dreamscape.
The former punk singer and lately actress was the headline act in a free concert at the Bents Park in South Shields last Sunday, and I pictured her as she opened her set with a fine rendition of Lenny Kravitz’s “Are you gonna go my way”, I was a little surprised at the choice but it worked very well as she quickly swung into Alice Cooper’s “School’s out”, it didn’t take her long to have the crowds swinging along and dancing in the rain.
Toyah will be back in the north-east later this year when South Shields’ fans of hers can see her performing as the Devil Queen in Steve Steinman’s “Vampires Rock” on 11th October at the Sunderland Empire.
