After playing several successful shows on their current 50th anniversary tour, Kansas have decided to extended the run. The rock music legends added several new dates, extending the trek by an additional four months. Check out the full list of new shows below.

“The way audiences have received the 50th Anniversary Tour has been spectacular,” Kansas drummer and original member Phil Ehart states. “It only made sense to extend the tour into 2024. We look forward to fans in more locations being able to see the tour – and for people who loved it the first time to see it again!” Ehart adds, “Heck, the first 50 dates didn’t even include the state of Kansas. You know we must perform there!”

Most newly announced concert dates go on sale this Friday, September 15, 2023, at 10am local time. Kansas Fan Club, American Express Card Holders, and other pre-sales begin today, September 12, at 11am. Previously announced concert dates and Kansas VIP Packages are on sale now and selling fast. Ticket information can be found HERE.

“Our entire career has been a winding journey,” guitarist and original Kansas member Richard Williams noted in a press release. “Whether it’s been the ‘original’ lineup signing with Don Kirshner, years on the bus, touring with Queen, worldwide success peaking with Leftoverture and Point of Know Return, the valleys of the ’90s and ‘dinosaur bands’ losing steam, various lineup changes, to our most recent ‘rebirth’ and success of our latest new music over the last eight years – there have been several forks in the road of that journey. This 50th Anniversary Tour and release will represent that journey and the forks along that road.”

“I’m incredibly excited about the 50th Anniversary Tour,” adds vocalist Ronnie Platt, who joined the band’s lineup in 2014. “I tell people I’m not allowed to create a set list, because it would be five hours long. There are so many songs I want to perform live. I think fans will be excited not only to hear our hits and fan favorites spanning 50 years of Kansas but also some songs that haven’t been performed live in decades.”

Earlier this year, Kansas released a career-spanning compilation titled Another Fork in the Road – 50 years of Kansas. The album is available digitally and on a three-CD set. Fans can purchase it now HERE.
