We are so excited to see our fans from coast to coast, and plan to make this summer our most epic tour yet!”

With a legendary career spanning more than four decades, Kansas has firmly established itself as one America’s iconic classic rock bands. This “garage band” from Topeka released their debut album in 1974 after being discovered by Wally Gold, who worked for Don Kirshner, and have gone on to sell more than 30 million albums worldwide. Composing a catalogue that includes fifteen studio albums and five live albums, Kansas has produced eight gold albums, three ***tuple-platinum albums (Leftoverture, Point Know Return, Best Kansas), one platinum live album (Two for the Show), and two one million-selling gold singles, “Carry On Wayward Son” and “Dust in the Wind.” Kansas appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the ‘70’s and ‘80’s and played to sold out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan. “Carry On Wayward Son” continues to be one the top five most played songs on classic rock radio, and “Dust In the Wind” has been played on the radio more than three million times. Last month “Carry On Wayward Son” was certified as a 4x platinum-selling single, and “Dust in the Wind” was certified as a 3x platinum-selling single by RIAA. Continuing to write their legacy, Kansas will be releasing their 16th studio album in the summer 2020.

“We look forward to touring with Foreigner. It has been nearly ten years since both bands have done a full tour together,” Kansas shares. “That run was a blast, and we are excited to get started this summer. The bands and the crews get along great, and we’ll all be working tougher to perform an exceptional show for the fans.”

With over three decades and dozens millions albums sold, including a number one hit in 25 countries, Europe’s Joey Tempest (vocals), John Norum (guitars), Mic Michaeli (keyboards), John Leven (bass) and Ian Haugland (drums) are as hardworking as ever, annually performing concerts worldwide and producing new albums that are critically acclaimed by fans and the music industry alike. Their eleventh studio album, Walk The Earth, was released October 20, 2017 on Hell & Back Recordings (Silver Lining Music). It was recorded at famed Abbey Road Studios in London with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Rival Sons, Shooter Jennings, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton) and won a Swedish Grammy for Best Album.

“The band is super thrilled that this summer, we’ll be back in the USA… the birthplace rock and roll,” says Tempest. “It’s been four long years and we are honored to be on the road with Foreigner and Kansas for this extensive tour across North America. Strap yourself in! Europe in America once again!”
