Toto to tour with 'heroes' Yes

Yes and Toto will hit the road for a co-headlining North American tour this summer.

The progressive rock heroes launch their 26-date run in Mashantucket, Connecticut, on August 7.

Yes bassist Chris Squire says: “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.”

Yes launch new live package Like It Is on July 7, while Toto last month released XIV – their first album in nine years.

Toto guitarist Steve Lukather says: “We are so honoured to be touring with our musical heroes Yes. Life-changing music for me and the guys and we even have a song on our new record totally inspired by them so it’s a lifelong love of their music that has kept us fans to this day.

“We all stood and waited in line for tickets to see Close To The Edge and Topographic and were blown away and inspired to be better musicians and composers by Yes’ amazing music, musicianship and insanely cool live shows.”

He adds: “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.”
