Toto, Featuring Nathan East, Announces First Full North American Tour in A Decade

Toto

Toto has announced their first full North American tour in almost a decade as part of a worldwide trek in celebration of the band’s 35th anniversary. Kicking off July 26th in Belleville, Ontario, the veteran rockers will skip across Canada and the United States before wrapping up on September 14th in Chandler, Arizona.

The band’s current lineup includes Steve “Luke” Lukather, David Paich, Steve Porcaro, Simon Phillips, Joseph Williams and bassist Nathan East. East fills in for longtime bassist Mike Porcaro, who was forced to retire in 2007 after being diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The band continues to support Porcaro by raising awareness for the disease. They also help fundraise for Police and Fire Departments of California and the Fallen Heroes initiative.
