Kansas tickets - Kansas Tour

Kansas Schedule

Back in 1974, Kansas made a statement that graced their eponymous album that said, "From the beginning, we considered ourselves and our music different and we hope we will always remain so." Little did they know at the time that the statement they made in the '70s would ring true over four decades later. Now with a collection of gold and platinum albums under their belts, Kansas continues to rock arenas and clubs today with their hit songs like "Carry On Wayward Son" and "Dust In The Wind." To catch these seasoned musicians on the road, check Kansas out at places like the Blue Ocean Music Hall in Salisbury, Massachusetts; Starlight Theatre in Kansas City, Missouri; Choctaw Casino Pocola in Pocola, Oklahoma; and more! To stay on top of Kansas' full schedule, sign up for event updates through StubHub now. Never miss a beat again when Kansas is set to come to your hometown!


Kansas Background

The iconic band Kansas took shape in the 1970s. Leading the charge were Phil Ehart (drummer), David Hope (bass) and Steve Walsh (keyboards, vocals). Formerly White Clover, the band's name was changed to Kansas around the same time they asked Kerry Livgren (guitar, vocals), Richard Williams (guitar) and Robert Steinhardt (violin, vocals and strings) to sign on to Kansas. Even though Kansas was rooted in America's heartland, the band was greatly inspired by the rockers from across the pond - groups of the era like Genesis and Yes. This weighted influence was further validated by the lyrics penned by Kansas' main writer, Walsh. In 1974, Kansas' first album arrived, with the two subsequent albums achieving gold certification. By the time 1977 rolled around, Kansas band members decided to take the group into a different musical direction. They felt they were being pushed into a progressive rock stereotype so they leaned toward a more mainstream slant.

The smash hit "Dust In The Wind" cracked the Top 10 in the U.S., and Kansas' reputation was cemented in the early summer of 1978 when they were billed as "Deputy Ambassadors of Goodwill" by UNICEF at a high-profile event hosted at Madison Square Gardens in the Big Apple. By the dawn of the '80s, Walsh exited the group, expressing his frustration with the band's commercial approach. In 1983, Kansas disbanded after the release of a pair of disappointing albums. Three years later, Williams, Walsh and Ehart reorganized Kansas, enlisting Steve Morse on guitar. Power was the result of the reunion, followed by In The Spirit Of Things. Eventually, Steve Morse departed from the band to form his own group. David Ragsdale (violin/guitar) and Greg Robert (keyboards) completed the lineup. Freaks Of Nature dropped in 1995 prior Ragsdale and Robert's exit. Steinhardt came back to the band to work on Always Never The Same. For this effort, the band put an original spin on some of their old classics with support from the London Symphony Orchestra. In 2000, the original Kansas lineup reunited to cut Somewhere To Elsewhere. Two years later, Kansas issued Device-Voice-Drum, the group's debut live DVD. Today, you can still find Kansas on the road, as they tour annually. Most recently, Steve Walsh announced his retirement, with his last show set for August 16, 2014.


Kansas Albums

During Kansas' tenure, the group has released six live albums, 25 singles, seven compilation albums and over a dozen studio albums, which include: Kansas (1974); Song for America (1975); Masque (1975); Leftoverture (1976); Point of Know Return (1977); Monolith (1979); Audio-Visions (1980); Vinyl Confessions (1982); Drastic Measures (1983); Power (1986); In the Spirit of Things (1988); Freaks of Nature (1995); Always Never the Same (1998); and Somewhere to Elsewhere (2000).


Kansas Trivia

As one of the most celebrated of Kansas' catchy tunes, "Dust in the Wind," has earned its status as an anthem for pop culture. For instance, Will Ferrell belts out the ballad in the movie Old School. It was also illuminated in many of the Highlander TV shows. It garnered additional publicity when Subaru used the song for one of its TV commercials. Equally popular is Kansas' "Carry On Wayward Son," which has been featured on soundtracks for TV shows and flicks like Family Guy, Happy Gilmore and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
