Yes & Toto Join Together for Late Summer North American Tour!
26 Date Tour Gets Underway On August 7th!
World-renowned recording artists YES and Toto have announced they will join forces this summer for a co-headlining North American tour. Among the world’s most influential, ground-breaking, and respected progressive rock bands, Grammy Award winning YES has sold nearly 40 million albums in a career that has so far spanned more than four decades. YES continues with its tradition of symphonic progressive rock that remains timelessly fresh and innovative.
“We’re thrilled to be hitting the road with Toto. Yes have always been big fans of Toto’s music, and we think the fans are going to really enjoy seeing both of us together,” says YES co-founder and bassist, Chris Squire.
With over 35 years together and thousands of credits and accolades to their names, Toto remains one of the top selling touring and recording acts in the world. They recently released their first new studio album in ten years – TOTO XIV which debuted last week Top 10 in nine countries around the world. Prior to the tour with YES, Toto are embarking on a European headline arena tour with appearances at key festivals. Yes will be releasing a pair of live albums, a 14-disc box set Progeny: Seven Shows From Seventy-Two May 19th and CD/DVD bundle Like It Is July 17th.
“We are so honored to be touring with our musical hero’s YES,” remarked Toto founder/guitarist Steve Lukather. “Life changing music for me and the guys and we even have a song on our new record totally inspired by them so it is a lifelong love of their music that has kept us fans to this day. We all stood and waited in line for tix to see Close to the Edge and Topographic.. many many shows as young upcoming musicians/fans in the 70’s and were blown away and inspired to be better musicians and composers by Yes’ amazing music, musicianship and insanely cool live shows. This is a crazy dream come true for us and we can’t wait to do this tour and to make new friends and solidify old friendships.”
