​KANSAS will rock out the Sandler Center stage on April 5 at 7:30 p.m. KANSAS has spent more 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, back in the early ‘70s, that what seemed to be “different” was actually ahead of its time.

The band currently includes original drummer Phil Ehart, bassist/vocalist Billy Greer, keyboardist David Manion, vocalist/keyboardist Ronnie Platt, violinist/guitarist David Ragsdale and original guitarist Richard Williams. The group 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 its unmistakable presence on the popular video games “Rock Band” and “Guitar Hero,” and through songs included in television shows like “Supernatural” and “South Park,” and films like “Old School” and “Anchorman.”
