With all of the talent and hit songs between the Grammy Award-winning musicians, you know this excursion is going to be a blast. Get ready to sing along to your favorites like “Love Is A Battlefield,” “Hit Me With Your Best Shot,” “Africa” and “Rosanna.” Toto will most likely also perform selections from its latest LP, Toto XIV.

The additions to the schedule now have the late summer road trip kicking off Aug. 21 in Livermore, Calif. Benatar & Giraldo and Toto will take turns closing each night.

“I’ve known Neil a long time and he’s a fantastic musician,” Toto’s Steve Lukather commented.  “Pat’s voice is one of the all-time greats and we’re super excited to join together with them to do some shows this summer.”
