Fans of legendary singer Toni Childs can expect to hear 30 years of her hits when she plays Mount Isa next month.
The soulful singer is performing a special two-hour performance at the Civic Centre on Saturday June 22.
The sound of a familiar song on the radio can induce memories or emotions of bygone days and that is the feeling Childs says she hopes to bring to audiences during her Retrospective Tour.
Childs spoke about a fan-moment that touched her heart during her three-decade music career including an afternoon concert in Perth.
"Concerts in the afternoon are rare and this one was in 2010 as part of the Keep the Faith Tour," Childs said.
"A gentleman came up to me at the end of the concert and gave me a gift, he only had one arm. He told me he had been in a coma and my song Stop your Fussy bought him back.
"It was a beautiful memory for him and the gift he gave me was something he had created himself.
"It's wonderful to be connected to someone's life that way."
Childs said it turned out he was the second person that had come out of a coma to that song.
Stop Your Fussin was written when Childs was living with David Ricketts and "even though he was achieving a lot in his life he was complaining a lot".
"You're getting everything you want in life so stop your fussing. It really struck a cord," she said.
Her Retrospective Tour will see her perform at 60 venues across Australia, and with a grueling schedule of five shows a week, the 61 year-old is not daunted.
Over the years she has accumulated three platinum albums, six Top 40 hit singles and has won an Emmy.
