4 stars My first Kansas concert. Quite good to be honest, but there are moments when I don't feel so comfortable. Performance is very good, but seeing it for the first time, I was confused by Richard Williams staying in the back for the most of the time. Steve W (not Wonder) still keeps his well suited voice, however I have to say that this is my biggest problem here - songs sang differently from albums, when he's trying to perform them in a new way. This wouldn't be bad normally, but some of these tries fails (for me). Robbie gets a lot of attention, he and his wild violin. He is also the most furiously playing member (except Walsh who is jumping and behaving frantically, I quite like that after all). Billy therefore gets attention too (both on stage and in songs, because a lot of them have interesting bass parts). Tracklist is taken mostly from "Golden era" (70's) with well balanced placing.

4(+), the brightest moment would probably be Song For America (unique approach to this sound, but there are many good ones.
