Legendary rock icons KANSAS will bring their highly successful Leftoverture 40th Anniversary Tour to the EKU Center in Richmond, Kentucky, on October 11, 2017 at 7:30 PM. Friends of the Center may purchase tickets early starting on Thursday, April 20 at 9:00 AM. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 21 at 9:00 AM. Tickets range in price from $50.50 to $95.50 and can be purchased at the box office and online at EKUCenter.com.

This tour will showcase more than two hours of classic KANSAS music including hit songs, deep cuts, and new work from their latest album, The Prelude Implicit. It is also marks the first time the band will perform their hit album Leftoverture in its entirety.

“We are having so much fun doing these Leftoverture 40th Anniversary shows, we just want to keep doing them,” comments KANSAS guitarist and original member Richard Williams. “We had no idea when we started doing these, last fall, that they would be so popular. When we first started discussing this concept, we were just hoping to be able to do ten of these type shows. We would not have predicted we would end up doing nearly 70 of them. I can’t think of a better way to wrap up 2017, before taking a break from the road at the beginning of 2018, to record a new studio album.”

KANSAS released the album Leftoverture in 1976. Containing the smash hit and million-selling single “Carry On Wayward Son,” along with fan favorites such as “The Wall,” “Miracles Out Of Nowhere,” and “What’s On My Mind,” Leftoverture became the band’s breakthrough album. The album peaked at No. 5 on Billboard’s Album charts and reached sextuple-platinum status with more than six million copies sold. They are performing the album in its entirety at the EKU Center.

Attendees may also dine at the EKU Center before the KANSAS concert for $25/person. For menu and reservations, visit EKUCenter.com.
