Waikato News - - MUSIC -

Yes folks, TOTO are re­turn­ing to New Zealand and we’re giv­ing you the chance to one of two dou­ble passes for you to catch their live show in Mt Maun­ganui.

What a won­der­ful way to spend a sum­mers day.

The TOTO tour will be the first in what will be an an­nual sum­mer con­cert se­ries called ‘A Sum­mer’s Day Live’, which will fea­ture ma­jor in­ter­na­tional artists from the past four decades.

And what a way to start the ball rolling.

Founded in 1976 by some of the most pop­u­lar and ex­pe­ri­enced ses­sion mu­si­cians of the era, Toto had im­me­di­ate com­mer­cial suc­cess and crit­i­cal ac­claim.

Look out for all the hits that made them fa­mous in­clud­ing Africa, Rosanna, Hold The Line, Georgy Porgy and I Won’t Hold You Back and a touch­ing nod to for­mer mem­ber Jeff Por­caro and Bea­tle Ge­orge Har­ri­son and maybe a lit­tle bit of Weezer. With a mu­si­cal style that com­bines el­e­ments of pop, rock, soul, funk, pro­gres­sive rock, hard rock, R&B and jazz they have some­thing for ev­ery­one and are guar­an­teed to have you danc­ing in the aisles.

The ad­di­tion of Jef­fer­son Star­ship to the line-up brings such great hits as We Built This City, Noth­ing’s Gonna Stop Us Now, Sara, Vol­un­teers, White Rab­bit, Wooden Ships, Some­body To Love,

To­day, Mir­a­cles, Count on Me, Fast Buck Fred­die, Jane and Find Your Way Back to the ta­ble

Kiwi icons Dragon have carved a notch in our mu­si­cal his­tory with such great hits as Young Years, Rain, Still In Love With You, Are You Old Enough, April Sun In Cuba, Cel­e­bra­tion and Speak No Evil.

With Mark Wil­liams now lead singer, his big hit Show No Mercy and Age Of Rea­son which was cowrit­ten by Dragon’s Todd Hunter and was a No. 1 hit sin­gle for John Farn­ham are sure to fea­ture.

What bet­ter rea­son to cross the Kaimais.
