Kansas Making Plans For Big 40th Anniversary Bash

Kansas Making Plans For Big 40th Anniversary Bash

A reunion of the original Kansas is coming up this summer. The band has announced plans for a special show that will feature guest appearances from making plans for a special event to mark their four decades as a band. The group has scheduled a special show featuring guest appearances from former members Dave Hope, Kerry Livgren, and Robby Steinhardt, and will mark the first time the band's original lineup has hit the stage together in over 30 years. Kansas is organizing the special concert in celebration of their 40th anniversary. The show will be staged in two parts. It will open with Kansas performing with a 35-piece orchestra. The band will then return to the stage following an intermission to play their typical set. Drummer Phil Ehart says Dave, Kerry and Robby will be "playing on different songs with the current band through the whole show." He adds that the intermission won't be a break in the action, but they have "some great stuff planned" for that portion of the show as well.

Kansas will play their 40th anniversary show at the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on August 17th. Ehart says the location was chosen for a specific reason. He says when Kansas was starting out they received a lot of support from fans in Pennsylvania, and Pittsburgh was like their "home away from home."
