I have to agree with RT from Vancouver. Pacific Amphitheater, Costa Mesa is a nice outdoor venue and glad I finally got to see Toto after a couple of decades. I really wish they had selected a better playlist. It seemed to me like they were playing for themselves instead of for their fans. They sounded great but I would have rather heard 5 fan favorites rather than a 20 minute instrumental. I did like Lukathur's rendition of While My Guitar Gently Weeps but could have done without Georgy Porgy, Human Nature, and the 10 minute "audience repeat" at the end of Africa.

Amazing musicians all of them. Incredible body of music so why thy chose to play several instrumentals, a couple covers, and then donextended drawn out versions of many of the songs is beyond me. It seems like they were very focused on showing off their incredible individual talents as opposed to playing the songs the fans wanted to hear and sing along to. When they did play Hold the Line, Roseanna, Africa etc the crowds went nuts and sang along every word every line. I can think of 10 Songs I’d have rather heard than While My Guitar Gently Weeps (extended, Steve Lukather guitar solo) or several other B- Side type songs. Anyways just my humble opinion-Rockmaker, I’ll Supply the Love, St George and the Dragon etc etc would have been awesome.

TOTO...PLAY THE SONGS YOUR BASE WAITED FOR YEARS TO HEAR!!!!
Great evening in South Florida to see Toto!! After their warm up song...they broke in to "Hold the Line"!! Excellent performance and sound was mixed brilliantly!! Strong vocals!!! My compalint is the same as all those around me....WHY aren't they playing the songs we payed to hear?" I Won't Hold You Back" is one of the greatest ballads of it's time...the guitar solo is hypnotic...vocal blends were great in previous concerts...Did they play "I'll be over you"...nope! GREAT tune! Someone mentioned they rotate their hits...WHY?...yet they play a cover of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" at every concert! Disappointed!! "Afica" was amazing!! PLAY THE HITS!!! That's why we're hear!!

The band performance was good , I don't understand why they sell themselves so cheap by using unprofessional sound staff and a very poor acoustic location , sadly the final result was a good band that sound like a garage band rehearsal. Sorry , My last time on Vancouver Center., not sure about TOTO , guess this was the farewell
