Their break-up originally started n the the early 80′s when Livgren became a born-again Christian, which started being apparent in their lyrics in songs like “Hold On”. This for obvious reasons, impacted the lives of the other band members.
They have had about 30 years to settle their differences, and it was recently announced that the original lineup of Kansas will reunite for the first time in over 30 years at a 40th anniversary concert later in 2013.

Kansas will re-assemble during the celebratory event on August 17 in the Benedum Centre, Pittsburgh, PA.
Kansas, planning a two-set show will be accompanied by a 35-piece symphony orchestra for the first part, then after an intermission they’ll deliver a selection of classics.
Drummer Ehart says: “We do a symphony set then we do a regular set. And in the meantime we have Dave, Kerry and Robby playing on different songs with the current band throughout the whole show. We’ve got some great stuff planned for the intermission too – it’s gonna rock.”
Carry on my wayward sons of b****es!
