Yes and Toto will join forces late this summer for a co-headlining North American tour that’s scheduled to span 26 dates starting in August.

The tour finds both bands celebrating the release of a new project. Toto’s new album, Toto XIV, breaks a nearly 10-year recording drought, and has brought the band its highest Billboard chart position in decades; Yes, meanwhile, are prepping the July 7 release of their latest live CD/DVD, Like It Is.

“We are so honored to be touring with our musical heroes,” enthuses Toto 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 ’70s 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.”

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
