Los Angeles, CA --- Steve Lukather and Joseph Williams aka The Dogz of Oz, have announced Toto’s band line-up for 2024 and beyond. Returning to the fold are Greg Phillinganes on keyboards and vocals alongside Shannon Forrest on drums. They join Steve Lukather (guitar, vocals), Joseph Williams (vocals), John Pierce (bass), Warren Ham (horns, percussion, vocals), and Steve Maggiora (keyboards, vocals).

The band will stage 44 appearances across North America beginning on February 9 at Biloxi’s Mississippi Coast Coliseum. The itinerary features 30 appearances as support for Journey in arenas across The United States and Canada, with an additional 14 headline performances planned. A tour of Europe follows this Summer. Additional performances will be announced in the coming weeks, with a run of the UK and plans to visit other continents in motion now.  Tickets for all appearances are available for purchase here: https://totoofficial.com/events/



Over the past decade, TOTO has had a major renaissance in popularity like few bands at this point in their career.  No individual statistic exhibits this more than achieving the milestone of over 3.4 billion streams at Spotify alone. The total plays of the band’s collected works across all platforms is now approaching five billion. Amongst the most listened to recordings, “Africa” accounts for over one billion streams at Spotify alone.  The song was recertified by the RIAA 8X Platinum.  

Individually and collectively, the band’s family tree can be heard on an astonishing 5000 albums that together amass a sales history of a half a billion albums.  Amongst these recordings, NARAS applauded the performances with hundreds of Grammy nominations.   They are pop culture, and are one of the few 70’s bands that have endured the changing trends and styles while continuing to remain relevant.
