Kansas – Live Drastic Measures Tour – 1984

This concert was recorded for a radio special program distributed by Westwood One. It was promptly burnt onto CD’s and has made the rounds as a bootleg ever since. Kansas were on their A game this night and I only heard 2 errors on the whole recording. (Both Kerry keyboard errors). I’m sure someone with a better ear will find a lot more but I as a casual listener was pretty impressed. The bootleg actual says the concert was in 1983 but that is not correct. There were 2 concerts at the Universal Amphitheatre, one in 83 and one in 84. This is the setlist from the 84 concert.
