Kansas is ready to rock the brand new Capital One Hall in Tysons, Virginia, on Dec. 19. “We’re going to be one of the first bands to desecrate it,” lead singer Ronnie Platt. “We’re really looking forward to just being back on the road. We’ve been doing our classics set since May. … We’re going to bring something special to our Kansas fans.” The band will perform the full “Point of Know Return” album, as well as other huge hits. Accoding to wtop.com, "Formed in Topeka, Kansas, in 1972, Kansas began as a proverbial garage band. They were discovered by Wally Gold, who worked for Don Kirshner of the label Kirshner. Gold was impressed by the show and signed the band for their debut album in 1974. Soon, Kansas began touring with rock legends like Queen and Aerosmith. Their fourth album, “Leftoverture” (1976), featured the smash hit “Carry On Wayward Son.” Platt remembers first hearing “Wayward Son” as an impressionable teenager in Chicago. The band’s successful fifth album, “Point of Know Return,” featured a hit title track with a catchy refrain (“How long?”), as well as the timeless existential ballad “Dust in the Wind."
