Toto is more than “Africa.” Throughout the band’s 40-year career (so far) Toto has released a number of classic hits.

The concert album is a recording of the Amsterdam stop on the band’s 2018 tour.

The tour, “40 Tours Around the Sun,” began in 2017 and concludes this year.

Salt Lake City hosts the band at the Eccles Theatre on Tuesday, September 24.

The performance reached into the band’s deep history, including songs from its most popular album, Toto IV.

Classic Toto songs such as “Rosanna” and “Hold the Line” are featured on the concert album. There are also some of the band’s covers, like “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”

The DVD’s bonus material digs into the band’s past. The band’s expansive catalog reaches into collaboration with other artists. Toto’s keyboardist, Steve Porcaro, penned “Human Nature,” a Michael Jackson hit.

If you feel like you couldn’t get too much of “Africa,” you can immerse yourself with other band’s covers of the timeless song. The song has been covered by forty, yes forty, other artists.

The most recent cover of “Africa” to get a lot of traction was done by Weezer in 2018. The cover was the result of a online request by a fan.
