Celebrating their 40th year as a band in 2013, KANSAS’ first public statement appeared on their self-titled album in 1974. “From the beginning, we considered ourselves and our music different and we hope we will always remain so.” Little did this legendary rock group realize that back in the early ‘70’s, what seemed to be “different,” was actually ahead of its time.
KANSAS, the “garage band” from Topeka, has produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-Platinum albums, one platinum live album and a million-selling gold single, “Dust in the Wind.” KANSAS appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the ‘70’s and ‘80’s and played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan.
Today’s band is comprised of original drummer Phil Ehart, bassist Billy Greer, violinist David Ragsdale, original singer/keyboardist Steve Walsh, and original guitarist Richard Williams. Kansas remains a staple of classic rock stations known for hits such as “Carry On Wayward Son,” “Hold On,” and “Point of Know Return.”
Opening for KANSAS is the band Arc & Stones. www.arcandstones.com.
