Artist Countdown: Kansas Top 20 Hits 8pm ET

KansasKansas is an American progressive rock band that became popular in the 1970s initially on album-oriented rock charts, and later with hit singles such as “Carry On Wayward Son” and “Dust in the Wind“. They currently tour in North America and Europe.

Their self-titled debut album was released in March 1974, nearly a year after it was recorded in New York. It defined the band’s signature sound, a mix of American-style boogie rock and complex, symphonic arrangements with changing time signatures. Steinhardt’s violin was a distinctive element of the group’s sound, being defined more by heartland rock than the jazz and classic influences which most progressive rock violinists followed. The band slowly developed a cult following, due to promotion by Kirshner and extensive touring for the debut album and its two follow-ups, Song for America and Masque.

Kansas released its fourth album, Leftoverture, in October 1976, which produced a hit single, “Carry On Wayward Son”, in 1977. The follow-up, Point of Know Return, released in October 1977, featured the title track and “Dust in the Wind,” both hit singles.

On March 1, 2013, Kansas announced a 40th anniversary celebration was in the works. “Celebrating 40 years as a band, legendary American Progressive Rock Band KANSAS is taking a break from their regular touring schedule to say ‘thank you’ to their legions of loyal ‘Wheatheads’ with a once-in-a-lifetime fan appreciation concert scheduled for August 17, 2013 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.” their press release read.

The statement continued, “To start the concert KANSAS will perform a set backed by a 35-piece symphony orchestra. Following an intermission, KANSAS will then rock out a traditional band set of classics from their repertoire. The night will be highlighted by special guest appearances throughout the concert by original members Dave Hope, Kerry Livgren, and Robby Steinhardt – marking the first time all original members of the band will be on the same stage together in more than 30 years.”
