The band known for its hits “Africa,” “Rosanna” and “Hold the Line,” is coming to Hampton Roads.

Toto will bring their “40 Trips Around The Sun” tour to the Sandler Center in Virginia Beach on Nov. 6.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday (June 15). They can be purchased online, by calling 877-YNOT-TIX or by visiting the Sandler Center box office at 201 Market St. in Virginia Beach.

Toto’s new greatest-hits package, “40 Trips Around The Sun,” was released this year.  The tour will be the band’s most extensive run in years, according to a news release.

The rock/pop band enjoyed its peak success in the late 1970s and through the 1980s.

Worth noting: The band’s 1982 album “Toto IV” won seven Grammy Awards, including record of the year for “Rosanna,” album of the year and producer of the year.

Toto has more than 400 million streams on Spotify, and their views on YouTube exceed 500 million, according to the news release.
