A Celebration of Karen Carpenter
With 20,000 tickets sold in Ireland plus successful tours of the UK, Holland and Belgium. Ireland’s most successful touring tribute show returns to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre this September
Toni Lee is unique, utterly unique in that she recreates the voice of Karen Carpenter like no one else alive. Her touring show “We’ve Only Just Begun” has been on the road now for over 5 years and its simply the best Celebration of the Carpenters music to be heard anywhere in the world. The show features every Carpenter hit with an 8 piece big band and audio visuals of the Carpenters career highlights. It’s an evening of pure nostalgia where Toni Lee truly becomes Karen Carpenter.
Coming from a musical background; her Dad was the bass player in Vanity Fare and her late mum worked for years as an Agent/Promoter, so Toni, from a young age, has been surrounded by bands, singers and preparation for live gigs and events. When other kids were playing street games, Toni was packing her Dad’s car with his instruments and discovering what life on the road was all about. She first came to national attention when she appeared as Karen Carpenter on ITV’S “Stars in their Eyes” which led to the creation of her touring show “We’ve Only Just Begun”, which in 2016 will tour Ireland, the UK and Holland. Dates in America are also pending. With 25 years’ singing experience, Toni Lee is the ultimate professional performer whose attention to detail and pride in her work is second to none.
