You'll Never Guess Who's Headlining The Emirates Airline Jazz Fest Next Year?!
You really won't...
Turns out we do know them but only after an extensive Youtube creeping session. US golden oldie rock band Toto have been announced as the centre act at next years Emirates Airline Jazz Fest. Pretty sure you have to be an early eighties kid to have any idea who these guys are.
Supporting them on stage is Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox... Yup we drew a blank here too.
We're a little disappointed to say the least but in the interest of being good sports we've put together a few random tidbits of info about these apparently must- see music legends.
To save you the trouble, we've included one of Toto's most well known tunes for you to have a listen to
Toto have managed to sell over 40 million albums to date
Toto haven't been seen in Dubai since 2007
Where they held a sell out gig.
And they're really looking forward to coming back to us
“David Paich, Steve Porcaro, Joseph Williams, and I, alongside the entire Toto entourage look forward to taking the stage at the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival. As we travel the globe, this appearance is one that all of us have looked forward to for some time now. The set will feature a collection of repertoire that includes the hits alongside some of our favorite deep cuts. We are as excited about this one as our fans over in Dubai are,”said Steve Lukather, frontman and band founder
For Golden Oldies, they're all over Instagram
And Twitter Too...
