After 50 years, Kansas’ time together could hardly be called “Dust In The Wind.”
Over the past half-century, classic Southern prog rockers have entertained audiences around the world with mega hits like “Carry On Wayward Son”, “Dustin In The Wind” and “Point of Know Return”. and now, in 2023 and 2024, the band will do it again on their “Another Fork In The Road” tour.
From March 23 to January 28, 2024, the band will celebrate its 50th anniversary by performing in theaters, concert halls and performing arts centers across North America.
As the icing on the cake, the band promised to release some “deep cuts that have rarely been performed live” in an Instagram announcement post.
No need to worry either, New Yorkers.
Midway through the 10-month run, Ronnie Platt and co. will head to Kodak Center in Rochester on July 1 and Tilles’ Center Concert Hall in Brookville on October 13.
Tickets should not be also expensive either.
At press time, we’ve found seats for as low as $58 before fees on Vivid Seats for select shows.
All prices are subject to fluctuation.
So if you want to see the Kansas natives — they hail from the state capital, Topeka — here’s everything you need to know about the Kansas 50th Anniversary “Another Fork In The Road Tour.”
Kansas 2023 Tour Schedule
This year and next, Kansas has scheduled 54 shows.
The festive ride across the United States and Canada kicks off March 23 at the Pipa Event Center in Winterhaven, California.
From there, the group will travel to major cities like the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh (June 2), Detroit (June 17), Chicago (July 15), Portland (September 9) and Memphis (October 27).
Ironically, they won’t be playing Kansas. Kansas City, MO, yes, but not Kansas proper.
Kansas will wrap up its mega show streak at the Broward Center Au Rene in Fort Lauderdale on January 28, 2024.

Kansas Band Members
If your band has been together for over 50 years (Kansas actually started with the band name “Reasons Why” in 1969), there will be some turnover within your band.
And while many members have come and gone, a few of the older players have held on and, uh, those wayward threads still carry on.
Current Kansas members include drummer Phil Ehart, guitarist Rich Williams, vocalist and bassist Billy Greer, violinist David Ragsdale, co-vocalist Ronnie Platt and keyboardist Tom Brislin.
