Toto Announce Headlining U.S. Tour
Toto have announced a round of U.S. summer tour dates, with more to come in "major cities" by August and September. The shows, called An Evening With Toto, will feature more than two hours of music from the band's career, including hits, group and fan favorites and songs from its most recent studio album, 2015's Toto XIV.
These new concerts begin on June 2 in Lake Charles, La. They follow a series of headlining U.S. shows last summer that marked Toto's first in more than a decade. Tickets are on sale now at their official website. A complete list of dates, cities and venues is below.
"We had such a great time last summer that we wanted to regroup and hit some cities we didn’t get to last time," co-founder Steve Lukather said on Facebook. "Always a thrill to bring our full show around the country."
Lukather and fellow core Toto members David Paich, Steve Porcaro and Joseph Williams will be joined by Lenny Castro, Shannon Forest, Shem von Schroeck and Warren Ham on this tour. Lukather and Ham are also both veterans of Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band.
Toto XIV debuted in the Top 10 in nine countries, becoming their most successful album since 1988 in both the U.S. and U.K. Toto followed that up with Live at Montreux on Blu-ray and DVD. They are at work now on a studio project to mark the band's 40th anniversary.
