In regards to this upcoming trek, KING'S X bassist/vocalist Doug Pinnick comments: "I've been a huge KANSAS fan since the beginning. I remember sitting on the floor with my friends listening to the just released record 'Song For America'... Fast forward to years later, KING'S X is going on tour with them!! It is an honor to be doing shows with them. This is gonna rock!!"
These dates will mark KING'S X's first performances since Gaskill's remarkable recovery from a major heart attack earlier this year.
"Not too long ago I was thinking I might not ever get back on a stage, now I'm ready and with the OK from all my doctors," says Gaskill. "What better way to get back than to tour with the legendary KANSAS. Let's rock..."
KANSAS original member and guitar virtuoso Richard Williams adds, "We are really looking forward to the upcoming shows with KING'S X. They're a great band and a force to be reckoned with. It's a tour like
this that allows us to dig a little bit deeper into our catalogue and
play a few songs that KANSAS fans haven't heard for a while. It's gonna be a lot of fun!"
On select dates, the one-man band THAT 1 GUY (featuring Mike Silverman) will open the show.
All confirmed tour dates are below with more dates to be added soon.
