Kansas to Launch Leftoverture 40th Anniversary Tour

America's preeminent progressive rock band Kansas will be touring select cities this fall celebrating the 40th Anniversary of their breakthrough album LeftovertureTo celebrate, for the first time in history, the band will be performing the album in its entirety.  The tour will showcase two hours of classic Kansas music including hit songs, deep cuts, and new songs from their soon to be released album, The Prelude Implicit.

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.
"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.
