Toto will kick off its 35th anniversary celebration in Europe.

They’ll also hit Luxembourg, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland, where the tour will wrap in Helsinki on July 6th. Toto also plans a U.S. leg of the tour, with dates and locations coming at a later date.
The lineup for the 35th anniversary tour will feature Steve Lukather, David Paich, Steve Porcaro on keyboards, drummer Simon Phillips (who has worked with The Who, Judas Priest and David Gilmour), bassist Nathan East (Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Phil Collins) and singer Joseph Williams, who sang the hits “Pamela” and “Stop Loving You” on the band’s 1988 release The Seventh One.
