The first set of shows in support of Toto's 40th Anniversary beginning in 2018 are here and 'The 40 Trips Around The Sun' Tour will begin in February 2018 in Europe.

The tour will be the band's most extensive run in years and will be a worldwide tour to celebrate their enduring career. More shows will be announced shortly and UK tickets are on sale right here.

Alongside the launch of the tour, Toto, along with Legacy Recordings have created a brand new Greatest Hits package. The album will feature new and previously unreleased music alongside newly remastered classic tracks worked on by Elliot Scheiner and Gavin Lurssen and his team. The core Toto members, Steve Lukather, David Paich, Steve Porcaro and Joseph Williams re-entered the studio this past year to work on the material. Full details on that album alongside many other projects the band has in the works with Legacy Recordings will be announced at a later date.

Steve Lukather told us:

"Myself, David, Steve and Joseph are humbled and thrilled at the long lasting success of the band. This 40th Anniversary tour is going to be a special one for us and all of the fans that come out. On top of all that, it's really exciting to be working with Sony Music again. We've spent a lot of time this year working on new music and re-mastering the older tracks."

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 5,000 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.
