The trek, which will mark the pop-rock group's first full tour of the continent in almost 10 years, will get under way July 26 in Belleville, Canada, and is plotted out through a September 17 show in Chandler, Arizona.
Toto's July 27 concert in London, Canada, also will include performances by Styx, Grand Funk Railroad and Saga, while their August 14 show in Atlanta will be a co-headlining event with Kansas. In addition, Michael McDonald will be on the bill for a handful of Toto's August gigs.
The band just ******* up a European tour leg on July 6 in Helsinki, Finland. One of the overseas concerts, a June 25 show in Lodz, Poland, was filmed for an upcoming DVD.
Toto's current lineup includes original members -- guitarist Steve Lukather and keyboardists David Paich and Steve Porcaro -- as well as longtime singer Joseph Williams and drummer Simon Phillip, and veteran touring bassist Nathan East.
