In 1976, Kansas released the album Leftoverture. Containing the smash hit, and million-selling single "Carry On Wayward Son," along with fan favorites such as "The Wall," "Miracles Out Of Nowhere," and "What’s On My Mind," Leftoverture, became the band's breakthrough album. The album peaked at #5 on Billboard’s Album charts and reached sextuple-platinum status for more than 6 million copies sold.

"These definitely will not be your typical Kansas concerts of the past few years," commented original Kansas guitarist Richard Williams. "This is incredibly exciting for the entire band, and hopefully our fans. It's something we’ve never done before, play an album in its entirety, as part of a set. Leftoverture was our breakthrough, and it's special that we are getting to celebrate it 40 years later. We've never even played 'Questions Of My Childhood' live before. I can't wait!"

The tour will also debut performances of songs from the band's latest studio release The Prelude Implicit. The new album, scheduled for release in September 2016 is the band's 15th studio album and first new album since 2000.

Kansas Lead Vocalist Ronnie Platt added, "This is going to be really special for both the band and our fans. It has been really wild recording The Prelude Implicit. We are anxious to perform some of the songs for live audiences. To be able to do that while also be performing Leftoverture in its entirety, and more; this is going to be a blast! Who knows, we may even have some more twists added in!"

Tickets & KANSAS VIP Packages for most dates go on sale to the general public Friday, April 22, 2016. More ticket information can be found at www.kansasband.com.
