Consisting of Justin Hawkins (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Dan Hawkins (guitar, vocals), Frankie Poullain (bass) and Ed Graham (drums), The Darkness first came to prominence in 2003 with the unprecedented success of their debut album ‘Permission to Land’. With hits ‘I Believe in a Thing Called Love’, ‘Growing on Me’, and ‘Get Your Hands off My Woman’, the album went an incredible quadruple platform in the UK selling over 1.3 million albums.

Catapulted to huge success, the band have gone on to release a further 4 studio albums, as well as 2018’s ‘Live at Hammersmith’ live album, garnering four Kerrang awards, as well as three BRITs.

Currently celebrating 40 years since the release of their debut album, Toto are one of the world’s foremost rock bands. With their current line-up of Joseph Williams (Lead Vocals), Steve Porcaro (Keyboards), and Steve Lukather (Guitars, Vocals), the group are celebrating an incredible legacy of unparalleled hits and accolades.

With ubiquitous hits including ‘Africa’, ‘Hold The Line’, and ‘Rosanna’, the band have won an incredible 6 GRAMMY Awards, including Best Record in 1983. Inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame in 2009, Toto continue to sell out huge shows to audiences the world over.

Toto have been announced as one of the first artists to perform at the Live At Chelsea Concert Series 2019, which is celebrating its 5th year of bringing live music to the spectacular outdoor grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea – home of the Chelsea Pensioners.

Toto will headline the Live At Chelsea Concert Series 2019 on Thursday 13th June, whilst The Gipsy Kings will headline the event on Friday 14th June.

The London show is part of Toto’s world tour 40 Trips Around The Sun which celebrates their 40th Anniversary. They recently released an album of the same name, which contains a selection of their best and biggest songs plus three previously unreleased tracks. Steve Lukather recently published his autobiography entitled “The Gospel According to Luke.”

The Live At Chelsea Concert Series returns for its 5th year in 2019, having established itself firmly as a welcome fixture in the summer calendar for many. This is in no small part due to the eclectic range of artists who have been featured previously, including Rufus Wainwright, Simply Red, Ludovico Einaudi, Belle & Sebastian, and the Kaiser Chiefs, amongst many more. As well as this, the warm welcome to audiences from the Chelsea Pensioners themselves into their home of the immaculate grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

Every year a portion of the ticket sales from the event is donated towards the care of the Chelsea Pensioners, as well as the maintenance of the Grade I listed site which has provided care and comradeship to ex-military personnel since 1682 when it was founded by King Charles II.
