Multi Grammy-award winning US pop-rock band Toto will headline the opening night of the 14th Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival 2016, which will take place from February 24th-26th at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.
The band - famous for hits such as 'Africa', 'Rosanna', 'Hold the Line' and 'I’ll Be Over You' to name a few - are no strangers to Dubai or the festival itself, having performed a sold out gig back in 2007.
Steve Lukather, frontman and band founder, commented: “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."
“With over 38 years together and thousands of credits and accolades to their names, Toto remains one of the top selling touring and recording acts in the world and they continue to transcend the standards set by the entire music community, being simply synonymous with musical credibility,” said Anthony Younes, co-founder and CEO of Chillout Productions.
Opening for Toto will be YouTube sensation Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ). The rotating collective of performers will bring a genre-busting, time-travelling musical experience with their recognisable sound - best described as pop hits with a vintage twist.
