“This tour has already been incredibly special for the band. The 50th-anniversary tour started in 2023 which commemorates Kansas‘s first year as a band. It is continuing in 2024 which commemorates the release of the first Kansas album,” comments Kansas guitarist and original member Richard Williams. “There are so many places in the U.S. where we haven’t been able to play yet, Topeka and Wichita just to name two, we knew we would have to add a third and final leg to the tour. After such a successful and sold-out premiere of the tour in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, we wanted to put an exclamation point on the tour by having the closing 50th-anniversary tour concert take place back there at the Benedum Center.”

“The audiences for this 50th-anniversary tour have been exhilarating,” adds Kansas lead vocalist Ronnie Platt. “Let me tell you, after a decade of performing in the band, the energy the fans bring each night continues to give me goosebumps. Fans in attendance seem to continue to raise their energy level and that just makes it even more fun for us up on stage than it already is!”

“As in life, our entire career has been a winding journey,” adds original guitarist Richard Williams. “Whether it’s been the ‘original’ lineup signing with Don Kirshner, years on the bus, touring with Queen, and finally worldwide success peaking with ‘Leftoverture’ and ‘Point Of Know Return’.” Williams goes on to remember, “That was followed by various lineup changes, the valleys of the ’90s and ‘dinosaur bands’ losing steam, to our most recent ‘rebirth’ and success of our latest new music over the last decade.” Williams concludes, “There have been and continue to be several forks in the road of that journey. This 50th-anniversary tour and release represent that journey and the forks along that road.”
