Kansas announces massive 2023-24 tour

As the old saying goes, when you see a fork in the road, take it.

Well, legendary prog rock band Kansas are doing just that. As the band approaches the 50th anniversary of their founding, they’ve decided to embark on a massive tour – an “Another Fork in the Road” – Trip.

Upcoming dates begin this summer on June 2nd in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. However, the band will also play previously announced Kansas Classics concerts prior to this start date. The 50th Anniversary Tour concludes on January 28, 2024 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

“Our entire career has been a winding journey,” Kansas guitarist and founding member Richard Williams said in a statement. “Whether it was the ‘original’ line-up with Don Kirshner, years on the bus, touring with Queen, worldwide success peaking leftoversand Point of Know return, the valleys of the 90’s and ‘dinosaur bands’ slowing down, various lineup changes, to our recent ‘Rebirth’ and the success of our latest new music over the last eight years; there have been several forks in the path of this journey.”

The band recently released a new triple disc collection, Another fork in the road – 50 years of Kansasavailable here.

“I’m incredibly excited about the 50th anniversary,” said lead singer Ronnie Platt. “I tell people I can’t do a setlist because it would be five hours long. There are so many songs I want to play live. I think fans will be thrilled to hear not only our hits and fan favorites from 50 years in Kansas, but also some songs that haven’t been performed live in decades.”

Presale for the tour begins Wednesday (January 25) via Ticketmaster at 10am local time using code SOUND. General ticket sales begin on Friday (January 27). Tickets are also available through StubHub.
