2018 was a banner year and the 40th Anniversary for Toto who celebrated the occasion by embarking on their longest world tour in years.
The band performed for hundreds of thousands of fans across Europe and North America, as their level of global critical mass reached new heights largely fueled by a rediscovery of favorites from their beloved repertoire.
This live performance was filmed in front of a sold-out crowd exceeding 18,000 fans on March 17, 2018 at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Toto performed a wide range of songs, including hit singles, rarely performed live deep cuts, and two recently recorded tracks which appeared on their latest Greatest Hits album 40 Trips Around The Sun.
Also included is the “40 Tours Featurette,” a brand new interview with band members: Steve Lukather, David Paich, Steve Porcaro and Joseph Williams.
With over 40 years together and literally thousands of credits, including the biggest selling album of all time: Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and accolades to their names, Toto remains one of the top selling touring and recording acts in the world.
They are a benchmark by which many artists base their sound and production.
They are true pop culture, and one of the few 70’s bands that have endured the changing trends and styles. Even after having had some changes in line-up regarding singers over the years.
Their sound is a mix between rock, fusion and pop. And although this combination them a mellow sound, there is always multi layered depth which gives them the appreciation they deserve.
This release holds many great tracks from their long catalogue. Captured in great quality.
