Toto is a rock band from Los Angeles, California. The band was formed in 1977 and is still going strong. The lineup of Toto consists of Steve Lukather, David Paich, Joseph Williams, and John Pierce. Other members include Robert “Sput” Searight, Dominique “Xavier” Taplin, and Warren Ham. This article will focus on the band’s history and music. But before we get started, let us quickly define the band’s lineup.
Toto was first introduced in the original film and is the police dog in the Oz Kids television series. In the Muppets’ version, Toto is portrayed by Pepe the King Prawn. In the 1996 Oz Kids television series, Toto is a female. In the VeggieTales episode “The Wonderful Wizard of Has,” Toto is replaced by another dog named Tutu. Toto has also appeared as a shape-shifting human in the Sci-Fi Channel miniseries Tin Man. Toto was voiced by Blu Mankuma in the movie.
After a long absence, Toto reformed in the summer of 2010 and played a short tour of Europe, benefitting their beloved late singer Mike Porcaro. In June 2010, Mike Porcaro was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and was no longer an active member of the band. However, the group has continued to perform and tour. It is possible to see the Toto band on the road, and you might even spot the one you love playing in a live show.
After a break of a few years, Toto reformed for a short European tour to benefit their longtime member Mike Porcaro. After Porcaro’s diagnosis, the band was forced to postpone all tour dates, due to Mike’s deteriorating health. He is no longer an active member of Toto, but his family will be pleased with the concert. The tour will help to raise funds for his treatment.
Toto was a popular band in the 1960s and 1970s. The band’s first reunion was in summer 2010. Toto toured Europe for a short time before departing for a US tour. After the rebirth, the group performed a concert in New York City and a short tour in Europe. The show was a benefit for Porcaro’s health. Since then, Toto has reformed.
In 2010, Toto reformed. They went on a European tour to raise money for Porcaro’s illness. Although this tour was a charity event, the band’s previous members remained absent. The group also reformed in summer 2010. The band’s European tour is the first since the band’s original formation. The group’s latest reunion came in July 2012. The two tours will be the only dates to commemorate the first anniversary of Toto.
Toto’s eponymous debut album was released in 1978. The band’s fourth album, Toto IV, was both critically and commercially successful. It made the group one of the most popular music groups of its time. The group’s Top 5 hits include “Hold the Line”, “Africa”, and “Hold the Line.” Sadly, the band announced its split in 2008, but the remaining members have continued to tour.
