Toto has added a North American leg to their forthcoming 2017 world tour schedule. The six-time Grammy winners have unveiled an 18-city headlining trek through the U.S. and Canada, which will keep the multi-platinum sellers busy through June and early July.
The “Africa” hitmakers made the announcement March 6 via their official Toto website. The veteran Los Angeles rockers will continue to tour in support of their highly successful studio album Toto XIV, which dropped March 16, 2015 via Frontiers Records and debuted in the top 10 in nine countries.
Dubbed “An Evening with Toto," the summer romp launches June 2 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, at Golden Nugget. The multi-platinum sellers will primarily hit theaters along the east coast, as well as new markets in the south, wrapping up July 1 in Salina, Kan., at The Stiefel Theatre For Performing Arts. More major U.S. dates for August and September are expected to be revealed in the coming weeks.
“We had such a great time last summer that we wanted to regroup and hit some cities we didn’t get to last time,” writes Toto guitarist Steve Lukather. “Always a thrill to bring our full show around the country.”
Select presales and VIP packages go on sale Tues., March 7 at 10:00 a.m. local time. Select tickets go on sale to the public starting Fri., March 8 at 10:00 a.m. local time. For more information, click here.
Toto previously announced a round of European summer dates, which will follow the North American leg. The overseas trek will begin July 26 Mariehamn, Finland, at Rockoff Festival and wrap up Aug. 12 at Faroe Islands, Denmark, at Summer Festival.
Last fall, Toto released the CD/DVD set "Toto: Live At Montreux 1991" via Eagle Rock. With the band's 40th anniversary fast approaching in 2018, Toto will be issuing a remastered version of their 11 Sony studio albums in 2018, as well as new music and a two-year world tour to follow as part of the upcoming celebration.
