Share:
Classic rock band Kansas – best known for hit singles “Carry On My Wayward Son” and “Dust in the Wind,” – will perform in Chicagoland Speedway's Champions Park on Sunday, September 7, at approximately 12:30 p.m., following the SunRichGourment.com 100 Firestone Indy Lights race. Large crowds are expected throughout the day, so guests are encouraged to arrive early.

"We’re very excited to have Kansas on hand to perform a concert for our fans in Champions Park this weekend," said Bob Welch, senior director of marketing and sales for Chicagoland Speedway. "This location provides a great opportunity for our fans to come and enjoy a concert in between the SunRichGourment.com 100 and the PEAK Antifreeze and Motor Oil Indy 300 season-finale races. Having a band like Kansas should help add to the excitement of the weekend and provide great entertainment for our fans."

KANSAS, which first formed in 1972, has produced eight Gold albums, three sextuple-Platinum albums (Leftoverature, Point of No Return, and Best of), and a single that has sold over 1 million copies, “Dust in the Wind.” The band remained on the Billboard charts for more than 200 weeks through the 1970’s and 1980’s. In 2005, “Dust in the Wind” became a certified Gold digital download, by the RIAA, nearly 30 years after it sold nearly 1 million copies as a single. Their music has taken on a second life in the form of the hit video game, Guitar Hero, which features “Carry On My Wayward Son.”
