King's X Announces U.S. Tour Dates With Kansas

King's X will return to the North American tour circuit this fall as direct support to Kansas. In regards to this upcoming trek, King's X bassist/vocalist Doug Pinnick comments: "I've been a huge Kansas fan since the beginning. I remember sitting on the floor with my friends listening to the just released record 'Song for America'...Fast forward to years later, King's X is going on tour with them!! It is an honor to be doing shows with them. This is gonna rock!!"

With King's X drummer Jerry Gaskill and lead guitarist Ty Tabor also onboard for the North American trek, these dates will mark the band's first tour since Gaskill's remarkable recovery from a major heart attack earlier this year. "Not too long ago I was thinking I might not ever get back on a stage, now I'm ready and with the ok from all my doctors," says Gaskill. "What better way to get back than to tour with the legendary Kansas. Let's rock..."

King's X will be touring in support of "Live Love In London," the live CD/DVD follow-up to the band's latest studio release, "XV."

Kansas original member and guitar virtuoso Richard Williams adds, "We are really looking forward to the upcoming shows with King's X. They're a great band and a force to be reckoned with. It's a tour like this that allows us to dig a little bit deeper into our catalogue and play a few songs that Kansas fans haven't heard for a while. It's gonna be a lot of fun!"
