Music News - TOTO announce NZ tour

TOTO announce NZ tour

06 August 2018 - 0 Comments

TOTO - The legends behind some of the most iconic songs in history - are set to tour New Zealand early next year.
 
Presented by Neptune Entertainment and The Breeze, the TOTO tour will be the first-ever in what will be an annual summer concert series called ‘A Summer’s Day Live’, which will feature major international artists from the past four decades.
 
The concert series will see US act TOTO play shows at ASB Bay Park in Mount Maunganui on January 9; Church Road in  Napier on January 10; TSB Bowl of Brooklands in New Plymouth on January 11 and Hagley Park in Christchurch on  January 13.
 
Kiwi favourites Dragon will support TOTO, with another exciting headliner still to be announced.
 
It’s without question that TOTO are currently in the middle of a major resurgence around the world. Loved for hits such as RosannaAfrica and Hold The Line, the band has released 17 studio albums, and sold more than 40 million records worldwide, since forming in the 1970's.
 
Their recent greatest hits record, 40 TRIPS AROUND THE SUN, debuted in the Top 40 in eight countries.

The 17-track album features three new recordings; Spanish SeaAlone and Struck By Lightning, alongside newly-remastered classic tracks worked on by Elliot Schooner and Gavin Lurssen and his team.

The core TOTO members, Steve Lukather, David Paich, Steve Porcaro, Joseph Williams re-entered the studio last year to work on the release.
 
TOTO have also toured extensively on the back of the release, performing to packed houses across Europe, including sold-out shows at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam and the Royal Albert Hall in London.
 
Promoter Toby Burrows says Neptune Entertainment is excited to have secured such an iconic band to launch the ‘A Summer’s Day Live’ series: 

“We have been wanting to bring TOTO to NZ for some time, and being able to place them in amazing outdoor venues in the heart of summer is the perfect fit”.

Kiwi rockers Dragon are also a major drawcard for the concert series. As the band behind hits such as April Sun in CubaAre You Old Enough, Rain and Still In Love With You, Dragon are one of New Zealand’s most popular live acts. 

They were inducted into the New Zealand Hall of Fame in 2011 and with Todd Hunter and Mark Williams at the helm, they have continued to delight Kiwi crowds wherever they play.
 
Stay tuned for the announcement of the third and final act, completing a talent-packed trifecta for your ultimate Summer’s Day.
