Kansas Announce Leftoverture 40th Anniversary Tour

Kansas have announced that they will be launching a North American tour this fall to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of their sextuple-platinum album 'Leftoverture.'

The band has revealed the initial dates for the trek which will feature them performing the album in its entirely, along with others tracks from their long career including songs from their forthcoming album 'The Prelude Implicit."

The confirmed dates kick off on September 30th in Pittsburgh, PA at the Benedum Center and conclude on November 18th in New Bedford, MA at the Zeiterion Theatre. More dates are still to be announced.

Guitarist Richard Williams had this to say about the trek, "These definitely will not be your typical Kansas concerts of the past few years. This is incredibly exciting for the entire band, and hopefully our fans.

"It's something we've never done before, play an album in its entirety, as part of a set. 'Leftoverture' was our breakthrough, and it's special that we are getting to celebrate it 40 years later. We've never even played 'Questions of My Childhood' live before. I can't wait!"

Lead singer Ronnie Platt adds, "This is going to be really special for both the band and our fans. It has been really wild recording 'The Prelude Implicit.' We are anxious to perform some of the songs for live audiences. To be able to do that while also be performing 'Leftoverture' in its entirety, and more; this is going to be a blast! Who knows, we may even have some more twists added in!"
