TOTO’s brand new Greatest Hits package titled 40 Trips Around The Sun was released just this month and is impacting charts all over the world. The band is currently in the middle of an extensive European tour with multiple dates already sold out across Europe. The 40 Trips Around The Sun Tour will be the band’s most extensive run in years.
“Myself, David, Steve and Joseph are humbled and thrilled at the long lasting success of the band,” Steve Lukather remarked. “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 again. We’ve spent a lot of time last year working on new music and re-mastering the older tracks.”
TOTO also recently announced the release of their definitive box set: All In via Legacy Recordings (a division of Sony Music). This limited edition release is available for pre-order here: http://SMARTURL.IT/TOTO40TRIPSBOXSET

They are pop culture, and are one of the few 70’s bands that have endured the changing trends and styles to a career enjoy a multi-generational worldwide fan base.
