Kansas, one of the true legends of American rock music, is performing throughout Europe during their Point of Know Return – 40th Anniversary tour –  and will also rock the stage of the Tampere Hall! The name of the tour refers to the band’s 1977 success album Point of Know Return.

During four decades, this sensational band has become known as a super-energetic and monumental performer, with devoted fans all over the US, Europe and even Japan.

Originally from Topeka, the state capital of Kansas in the American Midwest, the band has gained enormous success also in record sales. Their fifteen studio albums and five live albums have globally sold a more than 30 million copies, reaching gold and platinum sales all over the world. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1974. Their biggest hits such as Carry On Wayward Son and Dust in the Wind have reached both millions in sales and on radio charts. In the 1970s and 1980s, Kansas was on the Billboard charts for more than 200 weeks.

Having started out mainly as progressive rock musicians, their style changed towards hard rock throughout the years. However, also the somewhat clichéd expression classic rock portrays their style – especially when referring to their ambitious rock symphonies written by the band’s former guitarist-keyboard player Kerry Livgren. His love for Gustav Mahler, Richard Wagner and other classical composers can be heard in the timeless music of Kansas.

The current tour started from Pennsylvania in 2019, and brings together the following line-up: Phil Ehart (drums), Billy Greer (bass & vocals), Ronnie Platt (vocals & keyboards), David Ragsdale (violin & guitar), Tom Brislin (keyboards), Zak Rizvi (guitar) ja Richard Williams (guitar).
