Tropicana Welcomes KANSAS Back To The Showroom July 11

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (February 23, 2015) — Progressive rockers KANSAS return to Tropicana bringing their biggest hits to the Showroom on  July 11 at 8 p.m.

 

KANSAS has spent than four decades as a part of the soundtrack of the lives of multiple

generations of music lovers. The band’s first public statement appeared on their self-titled

album in 1974. “From the beginning, we considered ourselves and our music different

and we hope we will always remain so.” Little did this legendary rock group realize that

back in the early ‘70’s, what seemed to be “different,” was actually ahead of its time.

 

This “garage band” from Topeka released their debut album in 1974 after being

discovered by Wally Gold, who worked for Don Kirshner.

 

The band 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 a million-selling gold single, ‘Dust in the Wind.’ KANSAS appeared on the

Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the ‘70’s and ‘80’s and played to sold-out

arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan. ‘Carry On Wayward

Son’ was the #2 most played track on classic rock radio in 1995 and went to #1 in 1997.

 

The band, which is currently comprised of original drummer Phil Ehart, bassist/vocalist

Billy Greer, keyboardist David Manion, vocalist/keyboardist Ronnie Platt,

violinist/guitarist David Ragsdale, and original guitarist Richard Williams, continues to

perform in front of large and enthusiastic audiences around the world.

 

Along with touring, KANSAS continues to remain a fixture of Classic Rock radio and

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 with films ‘Old School,’

and ‘Anchorman.’

 

Tickets to see Kansas are $71, $61 and $51. Tickets will go on sale February 27, 2015. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com or via phone at 1.800.736.1420, or at the Tropicana Box Office.
