UK SHOWS POSTPONEMENT

Hi You Lot!

As we said in an earlier Facebook post, postponements will be made for good of everyone.

As things stand, even with the prime minister announcing the end of UK lockdown, the band and crew are based all over Europe, all with their own vaccination roll out plans and travel/quarantine restrictions.

We can’t afford to risk having to change the September UK shows at the last minute, so we have decided to play it EXTRA safe and postpone the shows exactly ONE year later.

There are also many of you traveling in from all corners of the world. We just can’t risk it in this volatile climate.

Also remember, these words come from the mouth of Boris Johnson! And we are already hearing that even if restrictions are lifted there are talks of social distancing and mask wearing etc with a greatly reduced seated audience!! We are not going for that, a gigs a gig, with a mosh pit, beers, singing and all the rest of it!

Anyways, South Shields is sold out already, Edinburgh and London almost too, how could we play to a reduced audience?! More news on the Manchester show below!!

BUT, the main thing, in a nutshell, is we live all over Europe with all kindsa restrictions and we are in the midst of a pandemic! That's it!

Now the good news:

All tickets remain valid for the rescheduled dates - South Shields has sold out and limited tickets remain for London and Edinburgh. Unfortunately Angelic Upstarts are unavailable for the rescheduled Forum date but we are pleased to announce UK Subs will now be our very special guests for the evening. Our sold out Manchester Club Academy show has now upgraded to Academy 2 so additional tickets available now.

Click here for tickets!

We know this is all a nightmare, and highly disappointing, This has not been an easy decision to make, believe me! WE WANNA GET GIGGING.

As for the other shows planned for 2021, please just keep checking the tour dates, you all know the present situation. We will keep you posted as soon as we have news.

Stay safe

SEPTEMBER 2020

Hey You Lot, we really hope you are all safe 'n’ well in these uncertain times.

So, you may have read on The Toy Dolls Facebook that, since lockdown, Olga has been getting a lot of requests for the sale of personalized, hand written lyric sheets.

At the moment Olga is flat out writing The Toy Dolls' next album, so we have decided to give this a time slot of just one week! DON'T MISS OUT!

In a nutshell you can choose any song (or songs) written by Olga from The Toy Dolls back catalogue (and there’s plenty to choose from!), Olga will hand write the lyrics, sign them, date them and personalize them with a name of your choice.

These will NOT be printed! They will be ALL HAND WRITTEN by Olga, ALL INDIVIDUAL, and ALL UNIQUE - so you will probably see scribbles & crossed out words!!!

The lyrics will be written on high quality A4 heavy embossed hammer textured paper, and sent anywhere in the world by first class mail in a hard backed envelope.

Each lyric sheet will be priced at €50 Euro, but if you order three then this will be only €120 Euro. All prices includes packing & postage WORLDWIDE.

For example, if you order five lyric sheets that would be €220 Euro, however six would be only €240 Euro!

Confused?! Whatever, it's an amazing deal for such a brilliant, unique item! I am gonna get myself 3 or 4 for sure! It's just so difficult to decide which songs to go for!

As mentioned earlier, there will be just a ONE WEEK time slot for this sale, then it will be taken down so Olga can get on writing the album!

The sale will start HERE at 10am (CET) Saturday morning 10th October, and will end at 10am (CET) Saturday morning 17th October.

This is gonna make a lovely unique gift for a relation, a boyfriend / girlfriend or indeed for yourself! Remember the sale is only for ONE WEEK!

Until next time...

GUITAR TIME WITH OLGA - NOW AVAILABLE!

In this absolute beginners course, Olga teaches you everything you need to know to get you playing guitar.

Click HERE to subscribe!

AUGUST 2020

Happy Summertime You Lot!

Well, what a situation we find ourselves in eh? Unfortunately we can't comment on any of the live shows which are advertised for 2020. Like everyone else we just have to sit tight, but you know the score, the virus is still with us and there are performance and travel restrictions all over the world. WATCH THIS SPACE, AND TAKE CARE!

OK, before we move on...

Yer ASK OLGA video answers are here, keep sending your questions to .

GUITAR TIME WITH OLGA

In the meantime, whilst we wait for live show news, we're really excited to announce that Olga has filmed an absolute beginners guitar course, and its damn good I can tell ya! And I mean REALLY good! I know I really could've done with something like this way back when I started playing!

Olga has aimed this course at anyone who has just bought a guitar or who has never played before, he speaks slowly and goes over and over each section.

Olga has focused this course on trying to get you playing in a band, or jamming with friends, as quickly as possible rather than concentrating too much on music theory. Exactly what you need to get started!

Filmed with three cameras, each lesson is around 40 minutes long with enough to keep you regularly practicing throughout the week until the next lesson. As Olga points out though, he can only teach you what to practice! The practicing is all down to you!

Each lesson will feature graphics of chords and notes / fret positions and it's recommended that you work through the lessons in succession, one each week, providing you do regular practice between each lesson!

All the lessons will be sent digitally to each subscriber within 48 hours of subscribing. Make sure you have a good internet connection!

The full 10 lesson course will be priced at €150 (which works out at an amazing €15 per lesson!), and every subscriber will be sent a professionally printed certificate through the mail which has been personally signed by Olga.

There will be a 48 HOUR SPECIAL OFFER when the course launches on September 11th at 10am (CET).

For the first 48 hours, all 10 lessons + the certificate, will be available for €125, which works out at €12.50 per lesson!

In addition, the very first person to subscribe will also be sent this amazing WITTMAN electronic guitar tuner!

After the initial 48 hours, the price will revert to €150 for the 10 lesson course + certificate.

This won't be a course where Olga is showing off his guitar playing skills. This is HIM teaching YOU in his own unique way how to play the guitar from scratch, and get playing with your mates as soon as possible.

This course is exactly what Olga wanted when he began playing all those years ago! He even teaches you how to tune the guitar with and without a tuner, and how to change strings!

You know what? I am gonna go and watch the course again...

Until next time...

JULY 2020

UK ANNOUNCEMENT

As you have probably noticed, more and more shows are being postponed because of the pandemic, mostly all to around a year later than originally planned.

Although the government are saying they are trying to get venues/shows going again, it's all just far too uncertain, in more ways than one.

We are all well aware that the virus is still with us, we really can't risk leaving the shows booked in for January, anything could happen, people are arranging travels/hotels etc, so it's just unfair for everyone to leave it until the last minute just to change the dates again.

This is such a volatile unpredictable time, so we have decided to play it extra safe and re-schedule the UK shows for September 2021.

We really hope you can understand this difficult decision, but we feel it's the wisest and safest move forward for everyone involved.

Once again, all tickets shall remain valid for the new dates.

https://www.seetickets.com/tour/the-toy-dolls

We seriously can’t wait to get back on stage ASAP and see you lot again!

The Toy Dolls team.

JUNE 2020

Hello you Lockdown Lot.

Hoping you are all safe and well and keeping your sanity!

We will start by saying that although shows may still be advertised we can not comment at this stage whether or not they will still go ahead.

Festivals and gigs are waiting for the nod from governments and health authorities, and even if shows do go ahead not all international bands will be able to make it, different countries have varying restrictions, and travel restrictions too. We are based in England, Scotland, Sweden, Belgium and Germany, which does complicate things even more!

So, you know as much as us, we just have to grin and bear it. As soon as we have any news we will let you know.

In the meantime there are already about 15 shows confirmed for 2021, announcements will follow in the coming months.

OK, enough of this virus talk, lets move on...

Yer ASK OLGA video answers are here, keep sending your questions to .

And the last of the album videos interviews is here.

Randale Records are doing a brilliant package with special limited edition T-shirt and Red vinyl, check it out here, lovely stuff.

OK, just a short update this time around to keep you lot in the loop.

We should have some more nice positive news next updates.

Meantime, stay safe, clean and hang on in there.

Until next time...

STATEMENT

Unfortunately we have now been forced into a situation where we have had to reschedule the UK shows.

Following the government’s advice and reading your comments on social media, we believe it would be irresponsible to do the shows on the dates originally planned.

We could wait another 3 weeks to see what happens, but the situation is so volatile it would be unfair to let everyone down at the last minute.

Health and hygiene being paramount, this is not our only problem, Tommy (our bass player) and the crew (with all the props / equipment etc) are based all over Europe in isolation zones and with severe travel restrictions, which are becoming increasingly tighter. Its just all too risky, in more ways than one.

Postponing the shows is the last thing we want to do, and we are sincerely sorry to have to let you down, though under these dreadful circumstances we feel it's the best way forward and hope that you will understand and agree with this reluctant decision.

Our rescheduled UK dates will be:

Wed 6th January 2021 - La Belle Angele, Edinburgh
Thurs 7th January 2021 - Hedworth Hall, South Shields
Fri 8th January 2021 - Club Academy, Manchester
Sat 9th January 2021 - O2 Forum Kentish Town.

All existing tickets will be valid for our rearranged UK shows and limited tickets are still available here for our Edinburgh and London shows.

Stay safe out there.

The Toy Dolls & Crew.

PORTUGAL POSTPONED

We are very sorry to announce that due to circumstances out of everyone's control (“corona virus”) venues have been forced to shutdown.

We will postpone The Toy Dolls' Portugal shows till 4 and 5 October 2020. If you purchased tickets in advance they will be valid for the new shows. Details on the shows in October will be announced in the coming weeks.

We are sure that this is the right decision regarding everyone´s health.

Thanks for your understanding and stay healthy.
