Rocking couple Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp are taking their Sunday Lunch covers series out on the road, and the official dates and venues have been announced.
The tour was originally confirmed back in June of 2022, with Willcox stating on Twitter that more information was to come.

Be ready to party, be ready to dance, be ready for some serious vocals from me and some serious rock guitar from Robert!”
