Kansas rocked the Beacon last night with an inspired performance of Lefoverture and POKR. Ronnie Platt's vocals and the band's harmonizing was the best I've heard in a live performance of any Kansas band incarnation in years. Acoustic set to start with POSW, Hold On, Refugee and Lonely Wind, set the stage for Leftoverture with standout versions of Carry On, Miracles Out of Nowhere and Magnum Opus the highlights. Fans stood for all or most of these songs and the band played off the enthusiasm of the crowd. Highlights from Point of Know Return were the title track which brought the house down, Portrait and Nobody's Home, one of the most underrated Kansas songs in their extensive playbook. The encore of Song of America and Icarus 1 from Masque were the perfect songs to appease the hard core Kansas fans attending. Overall the band was awesome, Phil is still incredible on drums driving the band. Rich continues to play most of the lead guitar parts keeping them fresh and lively but true to the originals. Billy Greer's versatility on bass and vocals has been a steady force for the band now for over 30 years, and Zak Rizvi and newcomer Tom Brislin brought excitement to the stage and killed on their solo opportunities. The Beacon is always awesome and my left side orchestra seats were better than expected. The show lasted 2.5 hours and was pure enjoyment for this Kansas fan all the way through.

I got my hubby tickets to see this concert as a Christmas gift. He said it was the best Christmas gift ever! I wasn’t sure what to expect, I mean these guys are getting up in age! There was no sign of aged rockers here! They rocked the theater, put on such an energetic and awe inspiring concert! I’m still smiling! They had the audience going, down to the encore, my hubby’s favorite Kansas song! “Carry on My Wayward Son!” I can’t say enough about these guys, it wouldn’t do them justice! We are fans for life! Thank you Kansas, for a very memorable night!

Kansas rocked the Benedum from the opening notes. Keeping the people on their feet throughout the performance. It was the first show of Fork in the Road 50 year tour. They played to a sold out show and they were better than I expected. Dust in the Wind and Carry on My Wayward Son topped the Concert for most people and a host of other classic Kansas songs and a couple from their new album. This is definitely a show to see.

Wow, can these guys rock hard. They killed it last night at the Chicago theater. My favorite was Wings of steel from Masque. And shame on me for not keeping up but their new stuff killed. If you want to know what rock is about..SEE KANSAS. The band members all kicked butt, I see no weakness only strength. Whew, what a show. Go out and see this while they are touring. Thanks guys for a show I will never forget.

Saw Kansas In Milwaukee and it was a real treat as they once again showed no slowing down with there new violinist it’s a must see he’s the Jimi Hendrix of violinists… rich and Phil are still rocking the night I highly advise if given the opportunity check this show out and enjoy the brilliant set list they’ve chosen …. Thanks Kansas and rock on !!!

Saw the BTE show last night @ the Keswick. This venue is amazing! More accurately, the people working for the Keswick were absolutely amazing and accommodating. I'm in a wheelchair and going out is difficult, especially in crowds. From the second I pulled up there was a lady who helped get my van parked and got me and my party inside. She stayed with me until I was settled up front. She really made me feel welcomed and at ease. Even my service dog was welcomed. If I could I would see every concert at the Keswick. Great venue and spectacular people!

My wife and I found out that Kansas is made up of great musicians and great vocalist on their 50th tour! Kansas makes classical music and rock blend as an art! The electricity in the air from the band had all of the early 70s fans and their kids at the concert clapping, standing, singing and praising this great performance!!

5.0 star rating Charlie McDaniel from Atlanta, Georgia


This was our first Kansas concert even though we were college students in the 1970’s when Kansas started. The electric violinist, 2 keyboardists, 3 guitarists, vocalist and drummers performed beyond belief. The entire audience were mesmerized and excited by their great compositions and the fabulous performance at this concert!! It’s like symphony music being made into great rock! Brilliant songs and a great performance!

5.0 star rating June from Birmingham, Alabama


We were amazed at the talented musicians and the harmonies that rocked the BJCC. An unforgettable concert! These older guys in Kansas can play and sing. And they did not stop for 2 and a half hours. Do not miss this show!! Ending with Carry On My Wayward Son was perfect.

5.0 star rating Mark from Newark, Ohio


If I could give this show 6 stars I would (for each band member)! Everyone was on point and harmonizing as if you were listening to an album. Focusing on each with solo segments was amazing and the vocals were incredible. I highly recommend the vip experience for best seating, photos with the band and a real cool 50th anniversary tour package sent to your home before the show.

4.0 star rating Karen Meanor from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


All if my life I wanted to see Kansas. They put on a great show! We had a great evening! Our home had burned down 2 days prior to the concert. We were thinking of not going because our tickets were burnt. It really was a great escape to keep our minds off of the big challenge ahead. Thanks guys for your entertainment over most of my life.
