25th Anniversary: Live In Amsterdam is the fourth live album by American rock band Toto, originally released in September 2003 via Eagle Rock Records.

Toto is an American rock band formed in 1977 in Los Angeles. Toto is known for a musical style that combines elements of pop, rock, soul, funk, progressive rock, hard rock, R&B, blues, and jazz.

David Paich and Jeff Porcaro had played together as session musicians on several albums and decided to form a band. David Hungate, Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro and Bobby Kimball were recruited before their first album release. The band enjoyed great commercial success in the late 1970s and 1980s, beginning with the band's eponymous debut released in 1978. With the release of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful Toto IV (1982), Toto became one of the best-selling music groups of their era. They are best known for the Top 5 hits "Hold the Line", "Rosanna", and "Africa". Several changes to the lineup have been made over the years. 

This album will change the mind of anyone who thinks that the guys in Toto are a bunch of wusses.

Toto’s commercial works (not to mention seven Grammies) tends overshadow the fact that Toto is a band borne from studio musicians with jazz-rock and progressive-rock chops, and the members are among the best players in the business.

Toto's progressive tendencies take center stage on Live in Amsterdam, as the band ditches many of its hits in favor of several album tracks and medleys ("Gift With A Golden Gun," "Girl Goodbye", "English Eyes", "Home Of The Brave") and a few choice covers ("While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Bodhisattva”).

When the guys do play their hits, they radically alter the arrangements, the ballad "I Won't Hold You Back" has never sounded quite so soulful or funky.

On Live in Amsterdam, Toto show more enthusiasm than most bands that are a lot younger and weigh a lot less. Throw in an over-the-top stadium crowd – one that seems to leave Lukather genuinely touched – and you've got a rousing performance that's probably more impressive than some metal shows you've attended.

Check out the singles from the album: “Rosanna”; "Africa" and "I Won't Hold You Back".

This album is now available on vinyl for the very first time!
