Kansas - The Band Tickets
Benedum Center | Pittsburgh
It's their 40th anniversary since the beginning of the incredible Prog-Rock band, Kansas is coming to celebrate at Benedum Center on Friday 30th September 2016! This very special show aims to leave fans with unforgettable experience – catch all of your favorite songs from their entire collection!
“These definitely will not be your typical Kansas concerts of the past few years,” says founding guitarist Richard Williams. “This is incredibly exciting for the entire band, and hopefully our fans. It’s something we’ve never done before, play an album in its entirety, as part of a set.”
The band responsible for the epic anthem "Dust in the Wind" and "Carry On Wayward Son” on their resume encapsulates the depth and breadth of influence that Kansas has impacted on generations of music aficionados.
In 1969, they were first named The Reasons. After several name changes, they settled on the band name ’Kansas’, and released their eponymous debut album in 1974. Kansas has released eight gold albums , three 6x platinum albums, plus the million-seller single “Dust In The Wind”. Between the 70s and the 80s, Kansas was a regular fixture on the Billboard charts, spending over 200 weeks in occupying top chart positions. Another memorable single, “Carry On Wayward Son”, also placed Kansas on the record as being the second-most-played track on rock radio stations in 1995.
Sold out concerts in stadiums, arenas, and music halls are still very much part of Kansas’ longstanding career. Since the 1970s Kansas has been tirelessly touring and bringing the spirited sound of heartland American rock to their legions of fans.
