(UK) Legendary LA rockers Toto have today announced that they will be returning to the UK as part of a massive world tour where they will unveil some songs from their new album due in Spring 2015, share some deep tracks from past Toto albums, and perform all the hits their fans have come to love and expect. The band are set to play three shows on British soil in Glasgow, Manchester and London on the 21st, 25th and 26th of May 2015. Toto tickets are on-sale from 10am on Friday 28th November and are available here.
Few ensembles in the history of recorded music have individually or collectively had a larger imprint on pop culture than the members of Toto. As individuals, the band members can be heard on an astonishing 5000 albums that together amass a sales history of a HALF A BILLION albums. Amongst these recordings, NARAS applauded the performances with more than 200 Grammy nominations.
With over 38 years together and thousands of credits and accolades to their names, Toto remains one of the top selling tour and recording acts in the world. 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.
Toto has been hard at work in 2014 on a new studio album that is planned for release in Spring 2015, their first since Falling In Between (2006). Keyboardist and founding member David Paich recently shared, “The repertoire is coming together so naturally it is as though we never took a break from creating as Toto in the studio. For the fans who have been waiting patiently and continually showing the band support and love over the last decade or so, this one’s for you. Collectively we can’t wait to share these recordings with The World.” In April 2014, they returned to Japan for a seven show headlining sold-out arena tour that takes them through Nagoya, Osaka, Tokyo, Sendai and Sapporo. Late- Summer 2014, the band staged their most extensive and successful North American tour in years as a co-headliner with Michael McDonald.
