  • Tickets go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Friday

    Kansas, one of America's most iconic classic rock bands, is bringing its Another Fork in the Road 50th Anniversary Tour to the Hanover Theatre on Thursday, October 12th.

    Kansas last appeared at the Hanover nearly 5 years ago when it played a near sellout show as part of its Point of Know Return 40th anniversary tour.

    The tour will commemorate the band's 50 years in the music industry and fans can expect to hear some of their greatest hits from the band's extensive catalog of 16 studio albums and 5 live albums.

    Tickets go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. this morning, Friday, January 27th.

    The band, which formed in Topeka, Kansas in 1974, was discovered by Wally Gold, who worked for Don Kirshner, and has since gone on to sell more than 30 million albums worldwide.

    With a career spanning five decades, Kansas has made a significant impact on the music industry, having produced 8 gold albums, 3 sextuple-Platinum albums (“Leftoverture”, “Point of Know Return”, “Best of Kansas”), a platinum live album (“Two for the Show”), a quadruple-Platinum single “Carry On Wayward Son” and another triple-Platinum single “Dust in the Wind”. The band has appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s and played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe, and Japan.

    The band is currently comprised of original drummer Phil Ehart, bassist/vocalist Billy Greer, vocalist/keyboardist Ronnie Platt, violinist/guitarist David Ragsdale, keyboardist/vocalist Tom Brislin, and original guitarist Richard Williams.
