PECSA (Petőfi Csarnok) Music Garden

District XIV. 14, Zichy Mihály Road – City Park (Nearby the Hereo Square)

The grand voices and rhythm behind the Super Hits of the ‘80s

Every heart sings a song an those who wish to sing, always find a song

Gosh, time has surely pulled on its running shoes. It’s already six years since the band was here in Budapest, giving a concert at the same place, the PECSA Music Garden.

I believe that where you felt and had a good time you wish to return to the same place. I guess the same goes here with the TOTO and not to mention the Hungarian TOTO lovers will surely be crowed at their one time concert, as mentioned already,

6.30 p.m. on sharp!

Could it be this is one of the reason why TOTO is coming back to Budapest. This is a short European tour only a couple of cities were implemented into Europe and in the States run. Well, we are the lucky ones to be in that pack. A band on stage and their music in our ears are over more than three decades.

Next year will be a huge tour relating to their 35th anniversary with a superb, massive world tour with covering more-and-more cities. So “Hold the Line” you out there, they will be in your town and cities just you wait and see!

Many know, but for those young adults who weren’t as lucky to be around in the ‘80s here is a brief background of the TOTO! The band members met at their high-school. Later in the ‘70s played studio sessions. Soon they became one of the busiest session musicians and their music was like glue or should I say, like a magnet attracted the audience at home in the States and around the world. So the band Toto was formed in Los Angeles in 1978 and from then on they lay their fame in the history of music with their combination of the pop, rock, disco elements, hard rock, soul and jazz, you name it!

Toto released its self-titled debut album in October 1978, and it hit the Top Ten, sold two-million copies, and spawned the gold Top Ten single “Hold the Line.” The gold-selling Hydra (October 1979) and Turn Back (January 1981) were less successful, but Toto IV (April 1982) was a multi-platinum Top Ten hit, featuring the number-one hit “Africa” and the Top Tens “Rosanna” (about Lukather’s girlfriend, movie star Rosanna Arquette) and “I Won’t Hold You Back.” At the 1982 Grammys, “Rosanna” won awards for Record of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Performance, and Best Instrumental Arrangement With Vocal; and Toto IV won awards for Album of the Year, Best Engineered Recording, and Best Producer (the group).

From the list cannot be left out their presence when they had been included in the year 2009 in the Musicians Hall of Fame. They are owners of several Grammy Awards as well.

Bobby Kimball – Bobby’s voice was a distinguishing mark, a signature of TOTO’s 1st hit: “Hold the Line” and topped the hit list fast as shooting star. Need not have to fear the “Hold the Line” will not be missing because of the absence of Bobby, even though many-many who have memos of his awesome, unique, emotional voice will miss him.

All can judge for themselves by seeing, hearing how Steve Lukather ignites the stage not only by the way he brings the sound out of his guitar, it like him having two dozen fingers , but also by bringing back other great TOTO hits like: AFRICA and ROSANNA tunes.

You just cannot allowed yourself to miss it the chance to hear some of the ‘80s music’s biggest hits.

Many will be humming the songs as they leave at the end of the concert and not just that evening but in the coming days, weeks they will surely click the tunes in their head.

Hush … just listen to this quicky sound, if this doesn’t make our feet to follow the track to the PECSA Music Hall, afterwards you will be sorry you didn’t make it!

(My fav. recorded in Japan, where they were beside Europe extremely popular!)
