Submitted by -Big Picture Media Mon, 11/28/2016 - 12:41 pm

KANSAS will be bringing their highly successful Leftoverture tour to more parts of the United States in the spring of 2017! For the first time in its 43-year history, the band is performing the hit album in its entirety.  The tour showcases two hours of classic KANSAS music including hit songs, deep cuts, and new songs from their new album, The Prelude Implicit.

Due to very popular demand, dates have been confirmed across cities such as Los Angeles, Portland, Denver, Seattle, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, and more.

"The band has been pretty overwhelmed by the popularity of both this tour and the new album," commented KANSAS drummer, and original member, Phil Ehart."Never having performed an album in its entirety, we didn't know what to expect. Due to the enthusiasm from our fans, we are excited to expand this tour to select cities next year. Who knows, maybe it can grow even more!"

Tickets for the tour dates can be purchased starting on Friday, December 2. More information is available at www.kansasband.com

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 with more than six million copies sold. They are performing the album in its entirety on this tour.

The Prelude Implicit, the band's most recent album, which was released on September 23rd, marked KANSAS' biggest selling week in the Soundscan era, and the highest charting release since Power (1986). The album reached #14 on the Top 200 album chart, #41 on the Billboard 200, #5 for Rock Albums, #6 for Physical Albums, #17 on the Vinyl Albums chart and more. The Prelude Implicit is now available for purchase in stores and online at Best Buy, Amazon, Apple Music, FYE, Barnes & Noble, Wal-Mart, Spotify and Independent Record Shops.
