Kansas Stretching ‘Leftoverture 40’ Tour Through The Winter

Music News

Kansas has just expanded its 40th anniversary Leftoverture tour with a whopping 33 new North American dates for the summer, fall, and winter. The band kicks off the current string of dates tonight (March 24th) in Salina, Kansas at The Stiefel Theatre For Performing Arts.

Leftoverture, which was Kansas’ fourth studio set, broke the band nationally, and peaked at Number Five on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Drummer Phil Ehart recalled to us when he and Kansas first realized that Leftoverture just might be a hit: “When we heard ‘. . . Wayward Son,’ once it was finished and listened back to, we all kinda looked at each other and went, ‘Y’know, this could be something very special. This could possibly do something no other song has done.’ Of course, as soon as it got out there, it just exploded. So, we had a little bit of a feeling, but there was no slam dunks with Kansas, ever. There never has been. We did feel very strongly (laughs) about ‘Dust In The Wind’; we thought, ‘That should do well on the radio’ — and of course, it did.”
