Kansas Reunites And Carries On

Just when you thought Kansas had passed the point of no return, they have decided to reunite their original lineup for the first time in over three decades. Kerry Livgren, Dave Hope and Robby Steinhardt will make guest appearances with Phil Ehart, Steve Walsh and Rich Williams for a 40th anniversary concert on August 17th. The event will take place in Pittsburgh’s Benedum Centre, a venue that was specifically chosen by the band.

“Pittsburgh and the whole state of Pennsylvania discovered the band first,” drummer Erhart stated. “We came here in the early days and it was like our home away from home.”

As for what to expect from the two-set show replete with an intermission, they’ll be backed by a huge 35-piece orchestra for their first act, and then plan to dive into classics like “Carry On Wayward Son,” in the second.

“We do a symphony set then we do a regular set. And in the meantime we have Dave, Kerry and Robby playing on different songs with the current band throughout the whole show. We’ve got some great stuff planned for the intermission too – it’s gonna rock,” Erhart continued.

This certainly seems like a reunion that was worth waiting for, and Erhart agreed, saying that this will be, “just like the old days. How cool is that?”
