Toto announce dates for 40 Trips Around The Sun North American tour

The members of Toto continue to prove that they don’t need Weezer performing their hits for them. The popular rock band have announced their upcoming North American tour plans behind their recently released 40 Trips Around the Sun greatest hits album, which celebrates 40 years of rocking around the world since their debut album arrived back in 1978.

The upcoming North American tour is set to begin on July 30 in Vancouver and runs throughout the U.S. and Canada well into the fall months before coming to a close on Nov. 17 with a gig in Lynn, Massachusetts. The lengthy run includes notable scheduled stops in major cities (Seattle/Austin/Washington D.C.) in addition to smaller U.S. and Canadian markets for fans who live outside of metro areas like Reno, Nevada; Northfield, OH and Melbourne, Florida, just to name a few.

40 Trips Around the Sun was released back in February, and included a handful of their biggest studio hits in addition to a trio of previously unreleased songs with "Spanish Sea," "Alone" and "Struck by Lightning.” “Spanish Sea” can be listened to in full in the audio-only video above.

“It’s without question, that TOTO are currently in the middle of a major resurgence around the world,” the band said in a lengthy tour announcement post shared to their facebook, which can be read below. “Few ensembles in the history of recorded music have individually or collectively had a larger imprint on pop culture than the members of TOTO … They are the benchmark by which many artists base their sound and production, and they continue to transcend the standards set by the entire music community, being simply synonymous with musical credibility.”

Some of the band’s biggest hits, most notably “Africa” and “Rosanna” continue to remain both cover and karaoke staples amongst fans. Thankfully in a music world where nostalgia reigns supreme at the moment, those hits will continue to fill the air as long as there are fans around to sing them. Tickets for select shows on the celebratory tour will be going on sale to the public starting this Friday, June 15, and can be purchased by clicking here.
