For many years the music of Toto has held a special place in my musical heart and after many, many years of being a fan – I was FINALLY able to catch them in concert during the co-headlining appearance with the equally legendary YES. Now the band has unveiled a month long summer tour which will be “An Evening With” show with no support acts. That’s all Toto music and I am very fine with that. Check out the press release and dates below and then I’ll return with some thoughts.
The Press Release:
21 Date Tour Commences On August 12 in Riverside, IA With Confirmed Appearances At New York’s Town Hall, The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Denver’s Paramount Theatre And Other Markets, Concluding September 11 in Costa Mesa, CA

Los Angeles, CA — Grammy Award winning band TOTO has announced the itinerary for their Summer U.S. run, which begins on August 12 in Riverside, IA. Much like the band’s appearance across Europe and Japan earlier this year, they performances are billed as “An Evening With Toto.” The performances will feature repertoire for their latest studio album XIV, classic hits, and both band and fan favorites from their vast catalog in performances that will stage two hours of music. Last summer, Toto co-headlined the U.S with YES, which followed a run with Michael McDonald over the summer of 2014.
The core Toto members, Steve Lukather, David Paich, Steve Porcaro, Joseph Williams will be joined by Lenny Castro (percussion), Shannon Forest (drums), Leland Sklar (bass), and back-up vocalists Mabvuto and Jenny Douglas. Guitarist Steve Lukather shares, “We look forward to bringing a longer show to our fans across The U.S. It has been an interest for David, Steve, Joseph and I over the past couple of years and we can’t wait to get out there this Summer.”
