Yes and Toto planning US tour?

Yes and Toto could be planning a US tour together, if comments by David Paich and Alan White are anything to go by.

The musicians were interviewed separately at the NAMM industry convention, and both were asked about their schedules for the year.

Toto keyboardist and vocalist Paich said: “I think we’re going to be touring the States with Yes – our heroes. We’re very excited.” He also mentioned the month of August.

Meanwhile, Yes drummer White said: “We’re just coming off the last album right now; we’re laying back, smelling the roses a bit, then we’ll be back at it.

“We’re looking forward to getting back out. I think we’re going to be touring with Toto.”

Yes launched 21st studio album Heaven And Earththeir first with vocalist Jon Davison – in July. Toto will release Toto XIV on March 23. It’s their first album since 2006’s Falling In Between, and their first studio work since reuniting in 2010.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
