Word from the Kansas camp is the band wants to return to a “more traditional tour approach” for the fall outing now that the band has successfully completed its popular Collegiate Symphony Tour.
But you don’t have to wait until the fall to hear such classics as “Dust In The Wind” and “Carry On Wayward Son.” The band has a few dates scattered through the summer, including the Northern Wisconsin State Fair in Chippewa Falls July 13; the Northeast Missouri Fair in Kirksville July 17 and the Ohio State Fair in Columbus Aug. 1.

While appearing on most dates, King’s X and That 1 Guy have not been confirmed for all shows and it’s best to check with your local venue for more information.
“We are really looking forward to the upcoming shows with King’s X,” Kansas guitar slinger Richard Williams said. “They’re a great band and a force to be reckoned with. It’s a tour like this that allows us to dig a little bit deeper into our catalogue and play a few songs that Kansas fans haven’t heard for a while. It’s gonna be a lot of fun!”
Kansas has partnered with Music One Live to offer a limited number of premium and VIP ticket packages along with merch to be sold through the band’s Facebook page. Grab the ol’ credit card and click here.
