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 fifteen 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
one million-selling gold singles, ‘Carry On Wayward Son’ and ‘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’ 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 three
million times!
