About Kansas

With a legendary career spanning more than four 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 fifteen 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), and two one million-selling gold singles, ‘Carry On Wayward Son’ and ‘Dust in the Wind.’ KANSAS appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the ‘70’s and ‘80’s 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!

2016 marked the release of “The Prelude Implicit,” KANSAS’s fifteenth studio album. The wide-ranging progressive rock album was released on InsideOut Music, and marked the band’s first studio album release in 16 years.

Throughout 2016-2017, the band has celebrated both the release of “The Prelude Implicit” and the anniversary of breakout album “Leftoverture” with the highly successful KANSAS: Leftoverture 40th Anniversary Tour. This tour is being released in 2017 as a live album, “Leftoverture Live & Beyond.”

The band, which is currently comprised of original drummer Phil Ehart, bassist/ vocalist Billy Greer, keyboardist David Manion, vocalist/keyboardist Ronnie Platt, violinist/guitarist David Ragsdale, guitarist Zak Rizvi, and original guitarist Richard Williams. KANSAS continues to perform in front of large and enthusiastic audiences around the world.

Along with constant touring, KANSAS continues to remain a fixture of Classic Rock radio. The band has reached a whole new audience through their unmistakable presence on the popular video games Rock Band and Guitar Hero, and through their songs’ inclusion in various television shows such as ‘Supernatural,’ and ‘South Park,’ and with films ‘Old School,’ and ‘Anchorman.’



What Passengers Think

If you love music the way we do, then this is the cruise for you! It is a marathon of bands playing at all times till at least 2 am. Always something to do, no down time just dance dance dance! The people on the cruise are so much fun as well as the musicians whom are always willing to strike a pose! We have met incredible people and made some amazing friends . My only complaint is that the cruise ends 🙁  Nobody wants to get off the ship, just stay on and watch bands forever! We are Rock Legends Cruisers for Life!

We were first time cruiser’s. Definitely the BEST vacation ever!!! Five of the most relaxing, stress free, days of a fun filled vacation.. We cannot say enough… the ship was clean, well managed, and beautiful.. venues were excellent. Rock Legend’s did an excellent job with the line up…loved ALL the music we could see and the goodies with the Rock Legends Cruise were very well thought out.

Thanks to everyone for the memories..hope we can do it again someday soon.
