Get hyped because Toto have just announced a massive Irish gig

I bless the rains down in Live At The Marquee.

It's time to get absolutely hyped because the one, the only Toto have announced a massive Irish gig for next summer.

The US lads will be hitting up the iconic Live At The Marquee event next summer in Cork, alongside the likes of Versatile, Christy Moore, and some other acts that are decent but c'mon - they're not as decent as Toto. 

Because, honestly, have you ever been in a scenario where Africa has come on and you haven't experienced a serene sense of calm and total, unadulterated delight?

No, you haven't.

Toto will be landing in the marquee on June 15, 2019, so you've only got a full seven or months until you'll be blessing the rains down in Cork.

Or Africa, whichever.

The band's iconic hit appeared on their fourth studio album, Toto IV, in 1983. It reached number one in the States and a very respectable number three in the UK charts the same week.

Weezer did a cover of Africa earlier this year. It got to number 51.

Tickets for Toto's summer 2019 gig go on sale next Wednesday, December 5 at 9am.

Get. Hyped. Lads.
