Kansas was a Topeka, Kansas, garage band in 1973 when it was discover when it was signed by then-impresario Don Kirshner and released its album debut in 1974. Since then, it has produced 16 studio albums and five live albums, including classics Leftoverture and Point of Know Return, and smash singles “Carry On Wayward Son” and “Dust in the Wind.” 

Most recently, Kansas has charted with 2016’s The Prelude Implicit and 2020’s The Absence of Presence.

“Our entire career has been a winding journey,” Kansas guitarist and original member Richard Williams says in a statement. “Whether it’s been the ‘original’ lineup signing with Don Kirshner, years on the bus, touring with Queen, worldwide success peaking with Leftoverture  and Point of Know Return, the valleys of the 90’s and ‘dinosaur bands’ losing steam, various lineup changes, to our most recent ‘rebirth’ and success of our latest new music over the last eight years; there have been several forks in the road of that journey. This 50th Anniversary Tour and release will represent that journey and the forks along that road.”

In addition to its massive 50-cut tour, Kansas has released Another Fork in the Road –

50 Years of Kansas. The three-CD, career-spanning collection features carefully selected tracks from across the band’s sizable discography. 

“I’m incredibly excited about the 50th Anniversary Tour,” adds lead vocalist Ronnie Platt. “I tell people I’m not allowed to create a setlist, because it would be five hours long. There are so many songs I want to perform live. I think fans will be excited not only to hear our hits and fan favorites spanning 50 years of Kansas, but also some songs that haven’t been performed live in decades.”
