Toto Announces First North American Tour This Fall 2013 In Almost A Decade

Toto has announced this morning what will be the band's first full North American tour in almost a decade.
 
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' imprint 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.  Band members have been South Park characters, and Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake recently did a comedy sketch around the band's hit  "Africa."  As a band, Toto sold 35 million albums, and today continue to be a worldwide arena draw staging standing room only events around the globe.  They are pop culture, and are one of the few 70's bands that have endured the changing trends and styles, and 35 years in to a career enjoy a multi-generational fan base.
 
The band has just concluded a European tour that hit 29 cities and visited such countries as: Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, France, Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland.
 
Toto World Tour 2013 will feature Steve "Luke" Lukather, David Paich, Steve Porcaro on keyboards, Drummer Simon Phillips (The Who, Judas Priest, David Gilmour), bassist Nathan East (Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Phil Collins), and singer Joseph Williams, who sang the hits "Pamela" and "Stop Loving You" on the worldwide platinum release The Seventh One (1988).   Williams is also featured on the platinum certifiedFahrenheit (1986), Toto XX (1998) and recorded "Bottom of Your Soul" on Falling In Between (2006).
 
With over 35 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. Collectively and individually, the band has played on nearly every major hit record of the past quarter century, placing their distinctive stamp of excellence all over CD shelves around the world. Toto 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 also continues to raise awareness for ALS, for their brother and friend, Mike Porcaro, who has been diagnosed with ALS, Lou Gehrig's Disease.  The band commits energies towards fundraising for Police and Fire Departments of California and the Fallen Heroes initiative (http://www.fallenheroes.org/), and help the United Nations in their humanitarian endeavors through music.
