DOCUMENTARY ABOUT KANSAS ON THE WAY
For four decades, Kansas have been making music, and next year, a full-length documentary will come out to tell the band’s story. It’s called Kansas – “Miracles Out of Nowhere” and spotlights the group’s career from their beginnings to the height of their success.
It features interviews with the guys as well as the likes of Queen guitarist Brian May and producer Brendan O’Brien, plus it boasts rare and unseen footage. Best of all, the DVD/CD package with the documentary film also comes with a companion disc of hits, deep cuts and more. It’s out in March and you can learn more at Miracles.KansasBand.com.
