Kansas has announced a 50th-anniversary tour called Another Fork in the Road.

“Our entire career has been a winding journey,” guitarist and original Kansas member Richard Williams noted in a press release. “Whether it’s been the ‘original’ lineup signing with Don Kirshner, years on the bus, touring with Queen, worldwide success peaking with Leftoverture and Point of Know Return, the valleys of the '90s and ‘dinosaur bands’ losing steam, various lineup changes, to our most recent ‘rebirth’ and success of our latest new music over the last eight years - there have been several forks in the road of that journey. This 50th Anniversary Tour and release will represent that journey and the forks along that road.”

Another Fork in the Road shares its name with a new career-spanning compilation, Another Fork in the Road – 50 Years of Kansas, that's available now.

The trek kicks off June 2 in Pittsburgh and winds its way across the States before ending Jan. 28 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Performances will feature material from throughout the prog-rock band’s five-decade career. A complete list of tour dates can be found below.

“I’m incredibly excited about the 50th Anniversary Tour,” said singer Ronnie Platt, who joined the band’s lineup in 2014. “I tell people I’m not allowed to create a set list, because it would be five hours long. There are so many songs I want to perform live. I think fans will be excited not only to hear our hits and fan favorites spanning 50 years of Kansas but also some songs that haven’t been performed live in decades.”
