Kansas Extend 50th Anniversary Tour With New Tour Dates
They launched the Another Fork in the Road trek in June, noting that the shows would feature a cross-section of music from their entire five-decade career. The next leg will start Feb. 2 in Pensacola, Fla., and continue through May 18 in New Haven, Conn. You can see the complete list of dates below.
Guitarist Rich Williams recalled an unexpected conversation with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who suddenly arrived in the Kansas dressing room. “‘Hello, guys. Nice to have you on the show. Love your band. Let us know if there’s anything you need,'” Williams told UCR earlier this year. “That’s the only time I’ve ever been starstruck. I didn’t say anything; I couldn’t make words. They were such gentlemen. It was very cool.”
When Will Kansas Tickets Go on Sale?
The band has been overwhelmed by the response to the initial shows they’ve played this year. “The way audiences have received the 50th Anniversary Tour has been spectacular,” drummer Phil Ehart said in a news release. They’ll also take care of a major omission with the next leg. “Heck, the first 50 dates didn’t even include the state of Kansas. You know we must perform there!”
Tickets for many of the tour dates will go on sale Friday, Sept. 15. More information can be found on the group’s official website.
