WELSH rock singing goddess Bonnie Tyler is coming to Ipswich, it was announced today.
The 57-year-old will appear at The Regent on Sunday, March 29.
The gravel-voiced siren is best known for her 1980s hits Holding Out For A Hero and Total Eclipse Of The Heart.
Born to a family that included three sisters and two brothers, her father worked in a coal mine and her mother shared her love for music with her children.
She grew up listening to Motown music and female artists like Janis Joplin and Tina Turner.
In 1975, she was discovered by Roger Bell, who arranged a recording contract for her with RCA Records. Before signing, she was asked to choose a different stage name, a process through which she finally became known as Bonnie Tyler.
