Toto Announce U.S. Summer Tour

Toto has announced they are going back on the road for a U.S. summer tour, and they will add more dates in “major cities” by August and September.

They call the show An Evening With Toto, and the band will perform for 2+ hours, playing music spanning their entire career, including their latest project, Toto XIV.

Co-founder Steve Lukather took to Facebook to talk about the tour“We had such a great time last summer that we wanted to regroup and hit some cities we didn’t get to last time. 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 Working On 40th Anniversary Album & Tour

Steve Lukather, the guitarist for Toto, has confirmed that the band is working on a new album and will go on a “large-scale tour” to mark its 40th anniversary.

Lukather recently talked to Backstage Axxess. “We’re working on material for our 40th anniversary. It’s pretty good,” he said. “We’re making new music, then we’re going to do a 40th-anniversary tour for the next two years. It’s going to be busy for the next few years.”

During the interview, Lukather discussed his issues, or non-issues, with former singer Bobby Kimball. Kimball left Toto when they split in 2008 and didn’t return when they regrouped two years later. Joseph Williams took over on vocals, as he’d done when Kimball had left in the ‘80s.

“I haven’t seen Bobby in seven or eight years,” Lukather said. “I don’t have any bad feelings. The press gets hold of this stuff. They want to make it seem we all hate each other. I love the guy. I have no bad vibe at all. Peace and love. I’m getting too old to harbor grudges – I’m not like that.”

The two-year tour hasn’t been officially announced, but Toto has confirmed a run of European shows from July 28 through Aug. 12 for this year.
