Kansas is heading out on a Leftoverture 40th anniversary tour to showcases two hours of their classic music including hit songs, deep cuts, and new songs from their new 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. 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.
