Yes and Toto have announced they will join forces this summer for a co-headlining North American tour.
“We’re thrilled to be hitting the road with Toto. Yes have always been big fans of Toto’s music, and we think the fans are going to really enjoy seeing both of us together,” says YES co-founder and bassist, Chris Squire.
Yes will be releasing a new live CD/DVD (recorded at the Mesa Arts Center in Mesa, Arizona) titled Like It Is on July 7.
Toto recently released XIV, their first new studio album in 10 years – which debuted last week Top 10 in nine countries around the world.
"We are so honored to be touring with our musical heroes Yes,” remarked Toto founder/guitarist Steve Lukather. “Life changing music for me and the guys, and we even have a song on our new record totally inspired by them so it is a lifelong love of their music that has kept us fans to this day. We all stood and waited in line for tickets to see Close to the Edge and Topographic…many, many shows as young upcoming musicians/fans in the 70's and were blown away and inspired to be better musicians and composers by Yes' amazing music, musicianship and insanely cool live shows. This is a crazy dream come true for us and we can’t wait to do this tour and to make new friends and solidify old friendships.”
