Toto today

Toto have announced the 2019 U.S. dates for their 40 Trips Around the Sun tour. They follow the previously revealed European shows.

The core Toto members are Steve Lukather, David Paich, Steve Porcaro and Joseph Williams.

In addition, a band billed as “the next generation of Toto,” ZFG featuring the sons of Toto’s Steve Lukather and Mike Porcaro (who died in 2015), will open for Toto on the European dates.

ZFG, which stands for Zero F**ks Given, includes guitarist Trev Lukather and bassist Sam Porcaro, plus drummer Josh Levine of One Direction and vocalist Jules Galli.

In April, Toto announced the release of the CD boxed set All In, coming via Legacy Recordings on May 24. In late 2018, a deluxe limited-edition vinyl/CD version of the set was released direct to consumers (this is now out of print and will not be reprinted). The CD-only box will available from all major retailers worldwide.

All In features the following Toto albums on 13 CDs: Toto, Hydra, Turn Back, IV, Isolation, Fahrenheit, The Seventh One, Kingdom Of Desire, Tambu, Mindfields and Toto XX. The set also includes a previously unreleased Live In Tokyo EP from their 1980 tour, along with an album titled Old Is New.

The Old Is New CD features 10 tracks, seven of which are previously unreleased, along with “Spanish Sea,” “Alone” and “Struck By Lighting,” which are featured on the band’s greatest hits collection 40 Trips Around the Sun. All of the music in the box set was personally remastered by Toto along with Elliot Scheiner.

Also included in the box set is a 24-page booklet which includes new essays and previously unseen photos.
