The millennial generation has stirred up a newfound resurgence of '70s and '80s rock band Toto and particularly popular hit "Africa," the ballad of interest that has unexpectedly been turned into the frat anthem of today.
From Weezer's cover of the sensation sweeping the nation to a Southpark reference of the '82 hit, "Africa" is back and inspiring sing-a-longs at house parties, in night clubs and during many a car roadtrip.
Riding the wave of renewal, Toto is embarking on a "40 Trips Around the Sun" tour, and it happens to have a stop on Nov. 1 right here in the Lowcountry at the Charleston Music Hall.
The tour is named after the band's brand new greatest hits package, which was released on Legacy Recordings with Sony, and is a follow-up to the band's European tour earlier this year.
Tickets to Toto, ranging between $59.50 and $95, go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, June 18 and are available at charlestonmusichall.com, by calling 843-853-2252 and at the box office at 37 John St. A dinner and a show option will be available for an additional $32.
