Kansas will perform their iconic hit songs at  Seminole Casino Hotel Immokalee Saturday, Jan. 25 with gates opening at 7 p.m. and the show beginning at 8 p.m.

With a legendary career spanning five decades, Kansas has firmly established itself as one of America’s iconic classic rock bands. This “garage band” from Topeka released their debut album in 1974 after being discovered by Wally Gold, who worked for Don Kirshner, and have gone on to sell more than 30 million albums worldwide.

Composing a catalogue that includes 16 studio albums and five live albums, Kansas has produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-Platinum albums (Leftoverture, Point of Know Return, Best of Kansas), one platinum live album (Two for the Show), a quadruple-Platinum single, “Carry On Wayward Son,” and the triple-Platinum single “Dust in the Wind.” Kansas appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the 1970s and 1980s and played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan. “Carry On Wayward Son” continues to be one of the top five most played songs on classic rock radio, and “Dust In the Wind” has been played on the radio more than three million times.

The summer of 2020 marked the release of “The Absence of Presence,” the band’s 16th studio album, which debuted at #10 on Billboard’s Top Current Albums chart.  The wide-ranging progressive rock album, released by InsideOut Music, follows-up 2016’s “The Prelude Implicit,” which debuted at #14 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart.  

With no signs of slowing down, Kansas continues to perform in front of large and enthusiastic audiences.

Along with constant touring, Kansas continues to remain a fixture of classic rock radio and popular culture. The band reaches a whole new audience through their unmistakable presence in various commercials, live sports broadcasts, popular video games (Rock Band, Guitar Hero and Grand Theft Auto), the band’s documentary film “Kansas: Miracles Out of Nowhere,” and a guest appearance on The CW’s television show Walker.

The band’s songs have also been included in various television shows such as Supernatural, Reacher, All Elite Wrestling, South Park, The Office and The Simpsons, as well as blockbuster films including Old School, The Suicide Squad, Anchorman, Pitch Perfect and Happy Gilmore.

Tickets for this outdoor concert start at $120 and will be available Friday, July 12 from Ticketmaster or at www.moreinparadise.com. Parking is free.
