With a legendary career spanning more than four decades, Kansas has firmly established itself as one of 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 15 studio albums and five live albums, Kansas has produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-Platinum albums (Leftoverture, Point of Know Return, Best of Kansas), one platinum live album (Two for the Show), and two 1-million-selling gold singles, “Carry On My Wayward Son” and “Dust in the Wind.” Kansas appeared on the Billboard charts for more than 200 weeks throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s and played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan. “Carry On My Wayward Son” continues to be one of the top five most played songs on classic rock radio, and “Dust In the Wind” has been played on the radio more than 3 million times! 2016 marks the release of The Prelude Implicit, Kansas’ 15th studio album. The wide-ranging progressive rock album is released on InsideOut Music and marks the band’s first studio album release in 16 years. The band, comprised of original drummer, Phil Ehart, bassist/vocalist, Billy Greer, keyboardist, David Manion, vocalist/keyboardist, Ronnie Platt, violinist/guitarist, David Ragsdale, guitarist, Zak Rizvi, and original guitarist, Richard Williams, continues to perform in front of large and enthusiastic audiences around the world. Along with constant touring, Kansas remains a fixture of classic rock radio. The band has reached a whole new audience through their unmistakable presence on the popular video games Rock Band and Guitar Hero, and through their songs’ inclusion in various television shows, such as Supernatural and South Park, and films like Old School and Anchorman.
