Legendary progressive rockers Kansas will release their new live album ‘Leftoverture Live & Beyond’ on 3rd November 2017. Their first live release since 2009, the set gathers new versions of hits such as ‘Carry On Wayward Son’, ‘Dust in the Wind,’ and progressive epics like ‘Miracles Out of Nowhere.’
Produced by Jeff Glixman, ‘Leftoverture Live & Beyond,’ features nineteen songs selected from twelve shows recorded during Kansas’s Spring 2017 40th Anniversary Tour. The set list includes classic hits and deep cuts, as well as new songs from 2016’s lauded studio album ‘The Prelude Implicit', which eonmusic hailed; "reaffirmed their status as one of America’s most vital progressive acts". The set culminates with a performance of the band's sextuple-platinum breakthrough album, ‘Leftoverture’ performed in its entirety.
Coinciding with the 40th Anniversary of ‘Leftoverture’ and the release of ‘The Prelude Implicit’, Kansas embarked on their biggest headlining tour in decades. The overwhelming success of that tour led the band, along with Inside Out Music, to release selected songs from the tour as a live album.
Says drummer Phil Ehart; “When we saw how much our fans enjoyed the Leftoverture 40th Anniversary Tour shows, we knew we had to record a live album. When it came to finding someone to produce it, we thought the best possible person would be the guy that produced ‘Leftoverture’ forty years ago. So, we called Jeff Glixman!”
Adds Glixman; “I’m really excited with how this live album sounds. This band is on fire. Producing this live album was truly an undertaking, but I am confident that Kansas fans will enjoy the end result.”
‘Leftoverture Live & Beyond,’ will be released on November 3, 2017, on Inside Out Music. The album will be available as a double CD digipak, four 180 Gram Vinyl boxed set, and as a digital album.
