It’s without question, that TOTO have currently been in the middle of a major resurgence around the world over the past several years. Their Greatest Hits package titled 40 Trips Around The Sun – Legacy Recordings (a division of Sony Music) debuted at the top of the charts in eight different countries upon its release in early 2018 and kicked off what’s been the longest tour for years for the band.
Their European tour last year saw them performing to packed houses every night including sold out stops at the Ziggo Dome (17,000 seats) in Amsterdam and Royal Albert Hall in London. Another round of European shows are already scheduled for this summer.
TOTO will now conclude the almost two year long 40 Trips Around The Sun Tour with twenty final shows in North America. The tour will kick off in Los Angeles on September 20th at The Wiltern. Tickets for all shows go on sale this Friday 10AM local time.
