Dogz of Oz Tour – Europe Summer 2021
It is the sensation in the Austrian concert summer:
As part of their Dogz of Oz Tour – Europe Summer 2021, TOTO will perform in Graz on July 24th, 2021.
Steve Lukather, aka Luke, and Joseph Williams have been friends since childhood and as bandmates share a deep and lively past that has brought about professional success around the world over the past few decades. Last month the duo announced a new line-up with world-class musicians. TOTO will continue to tour and have planned concerts in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia / New Zealand and other destinations where the ensemble will perform all of their hits, their hidden treasures and the solo music from the respective repertoires of Lukather and Williams.
In this next chapter in the unforgettable story of Lukather and Williams, bassist John Pierce (Huey Lewis and The News), drummer Robert “Sput” Searight (Ghost-Note / Snarky Puppy, Snoop Dogg) and keyboardist / background singer Steve Maggiora join forces (Robert Jon & The Wreck, MD Heino) added. Keyboardist Dominique “Xavier” Taplin (Prince, Ghost-Note) and multi-instrumentalist / singer Warren Ham (Ringo Starr) will also continue their careers together with Lukather and Williams. This represents the fifteenth version of the Toto line-up if you look at the band members or sidemen who have joined or left.
Luke explains: “We are more than happy with this decision. It fills us with refreshing, optimistic excitement for the future. Right now, Joe and I are the only long-term members of the band who want to keep on the road to show our music to our multi-generational fan base. I’ve spent nearly four and a half decades of my life as the only founding member who never skipped a show or album. In this way I have nurtured our legacy and continuously kept the music alive at live concerts. I will never stop with that, and the Dogz of Oz Global Tour offers a rare opportunity to reinterpret our individual futures while also making a deep connection with our audience.
Williams explains, “Luke and I have endured a lot together. He’s like a brother to me. Our creative partnership has always enriched our lives. Together we look to the future with great anticipation, to bring all our ideas to life. I can’t think of anyone in the world I’d rather start this next chapter with than my lifelong, loyal and talented friend and bandmate. We are the hard core … The Dogz of Oz! ”
Luke adds, “Joe and I have been friends since I was 17 and Joe was 14. During this pandemic, we looked at our careers again and thought about what to do next. The others are either no longer with us or are retired. And we still feel like the guys from back then who want to go on tour again as soon as possible. That’s where our life goes. Joe’s development as a producer, songwriter, technician, singer and performer is a great inspiration. The timing of this decision is perfect as Joe is in top form right now and amazes me every day. We enjoy this collaboration and we look forward to the future with enthusiasm. “
