All this hullabaloo about the ABB's 40th...which they are doing with a series of shows at the Beacon and a big tour...it's pretty cool! How cool?

We could be fans of the band Kansas. They are doing a 35th Anniversary show.

One show.

In Topeka, KS.

KANSAS TO RETURN TO KANSAS!
LEGENDARY BAND TO FILM "THERE'S KNOW PLACE LIKE HOME" LIVE DVD AT HISTORIC WHITE CONCERT HALL IN TOPEKA TO COMMEMORATE 35th ANNIVERSARY
PERFORMANCE WILL INCLUDE ALL THE BANDS' HIT SONGS, SPECIAL GUESTS AND A 50-PIECE ORCHESTRA
Los Angeles, CA - January 2009 - Legendary rock powerhouse KANSAS will return to Kansas on February 7, 2009 to film a live concert DVD, titled "There's Know Place Like Home," to commemorate the bands' 35th anniversary. The event at Washburn University's White Concert Hall will feature musical highlights spanning the collective's renowned catalogue, along with performances by special guests and the 50-piece Washburn University orchestra. Tickets are on sale now and available through the band's official website www.kansasband.com. All online ticket purchases at www.kansasband.com will include a final copy of the DVD upon its release, at no additional charge.

White Concert Hall holds a special significance for KANSAS, having performed there numerous times during the early '70s through the release of their first album in 1974. The hall was completely refurbished recently and features a beautiful grand pipe organ as well as playing host to the 50-piece Washburn University orchestra, both of which the band will be utilizing during the performance. Currently, KANSAS features founding members Phil Ehart on drums, Steve Walsh on keyboards/vocals, Richard Williams on guitar with long time bass player/vocalist Billy Greer and David Ragsdale on violin/guitar. Confirmed special guest appearances include original founding guitarist Kerry Livgren and former lead guitarist Steve Morse.

"KANSAS has always wanted to document our live show performing with a full symphony orchestra. To be able to film something like this at Washburn University in Topeka, with that awesome pipe organ and orchestra, will just make this an incredible event. I couldn't think of a better way to bring our music back home after 35 amazing years!" says Phil Ehart.

Produced by StarCity Recording Company's Jeff Glixman (long-time KANSAS producer) and partner Jim Gentile, the concert event will be filmed in high-definition for Blu-Ray and standard definition for the DVD release. Additionally, the DVD will be mixed in 5.1 surround sound and feature deluxe packaging containing a bonus audio CD as well as behind-the-scenes footage.

StarCity has tapped the team of Camp Digital, Steve Angus and Tom Gregory, to handle the shoot with Angus directing. Angus and Gregory have produced or co-produced events with some of the top names in music including Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Dierks Bentley, and Kenny Chesney, as well as events such as "House of Blues presents The Warped Tour," and the live broadcast of Woodstock '99 for HBO, VH1 and other pay-per-view outlets The team will bring Camp Digital's newest High Definition production truck, Journey HD, in as the capture vehicle for video along with JDM Mobile to multi-track record the audio for this monumental occasion.

Forming in Topeka, KS in 1970, KANSAS' self-titled debut album was first released in 1974. The band appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks during the 70s and 80s while playing to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan.

The band has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, including three multi-platinum releases, one platinum live album and eight gold albums with hit singles "Carry On Wayward Son" achieving gold status and "Dust In the Wind" reaching gold sales status in 1978 and again in 2005 with digital download sales.

I'm having some fun. I'm actually from Topeka originally. They were local gods when I was a kid.

These guys used to play a local club a lot when they were known as White Clover ... have always held a fond place in my heart for them.

There is a reason Kansas is doing just the one show and the ABB is doing umpteen shows!

We just booked Kansas on Monday for a free show here in Cincy in August in the community of Blue Ash. I'll post more later on this. We also booked 3 Dog Night for a show the night before. We're starting to get the schedule filled, and may have Little Feat on the night after. Waiting on a conformation for that show.

I almost got Kansas and REO Speedwagon for a show here in Gastonia when I was in the beer business. It was right after our area voted liquor by the drink. We were gonna rock. My little brush of fame as a promoter..........that fell thru. ABC (alcohol) board shot it down at the time.

The song, Magnum Opus, was the inspiration for my tattoo, pictured below...

"Rockin' and rollin' is only howling at the moon."

I have loved Kansas for as long as I can remember. They put on a killer show, then and now.
