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!" - See the initial dates here.
