Toto XIV become their most successful album since 1988 in both the U.S. and U.K. Toto followed that up with Live at Montreux on Blu-ray and DVD. They are at work now on a studio project to mark the band’s 40th anniversary.
Lukather gave “props” to Canada and the late great blues guitarist Jeff Healey. Then he stated that “l profess not to be a blues man, but I grew up in the ’60’s listening to some of the greats and here’s one.” He gave an inspired version of Jimi Hemdrix’s Red House!
The fans got all the hits and the show closed with the fan favourite “Africa.” Lukather said “we won’t do the regular clique and walk off stage and then come back after you clap your heart off, so what do you want to hear ?” And a loud scream of Africa was chanted! Ask and you will receive and the fans left the concert satisfied with almost 40 years of the catalogue of Toto.
