Below taken from Kansas website. Band to release new live album:

ANNOUNCES LIVE CONCERT ALBUM LEFTOVERTURE LIVE & BEYOND TO BE RELEASED NOVEMBER 3

PREORDER AUGUST 23 AT KANSASBAND.COM
 LEFTOVERTURE 40th ANNIVERSARY TOUR RESUMES AUGUST 25

AUGUST 17th, 2017
 
KANSAS, America’s legendary progressive rock band, will release their new live album “Leftoverture Live & Beyond” on November 3, 2017. This is the first live album since 2009 for the band that has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, and is famous for classic hits such as ‘Carry On Wayward Son’ and ‘Dust in the Wind,’ to progressive epics like ‘Miracles Out of Nowhere.’

Fans can pre-order starting August 23, by visiting www.kansasband.com.

“Leftoverture Live & Beyond,” produced by Jeff Glixman, features nineteen songs selected from twelve shows recorded during KANSAS’s Spring 2017 Leftoverture 40th Anniversary Tour. The set list includes classic hits, deep cuts, new songs from 2016’s studio album “The Prelude Implicit,” and culminates with the band’s sextuple-platinum breakthrough album, “Leftoverture,” performed in its entirety.

Coinciding with the 40th Anniversary of the sextuple-platinum breakthrough album, “Leftoverture,” and the release of the new studio album “The Prelude Implicit,” KANSAS embarked on their biggest headlining tour in decades. The overwhelming success of that tour led the band, along with Inside Out Music, to release selected songs from the tour as a live album.

“When we saw how much our fans enjoyed the Leftoverture 40th Anniversary Tour shows, we knew we had to record a live album,” said KANSAS drummer, Phil Ehart. “When it came to finding someone to produce it, we thought the best possible person would be the guy that produced ‘Leftoverture’ forty years ago. So, we called Jeff Glixman!”

“I’m really excited with how this live album sounds,” adds producer, Jeff Glixman. “This band is on fire. Producing this live album was truly an undertaking, but I am confident that KANSAS fans will enjoy the end result.”

“Leftoverture Live & Beyond,” will be released on November 3, 2017, on Inside Out Music and is distributed by The Orchard. The album will be available as a double CD digipak, four 180 Gram Vinyl boxed set, and digitally on iTunes and Google Play.

Leftoverture Live & Beyond Track Listing:
1. Icarus II
2. Icarus
3. Point of Know Return
4. Paradox
5. Journey from Mariabronn
6. Lamplight Symphony
7. Dust in the Wind

Stumbled across this a few weeks ago.  It was a bonus track on a Magna Carta records release called Sounds Like Christmas from 2001.  So right around Somewhere To Elsewhere timeframe.  I really like how Steve sounds on this track.

Video of their infamous Live At The Whiskey live recording in 92.  Walsh was smoking weed, snorting lines and drinking like a fish during this time .  This was the beginning of his real vocal decline.  The band will probably never release this on DVD or bluray so unless you bought the VHS when it came out in 92...The band is embarrassed by this , especially Walsh.

Fight Fire With Fire/Play The Game Tonight from the Freaks Of Nature tour in 96.

More Steve on his Pat Travers diet (snorting whisky and drinking cocaine)

As awesome of a singer that he was he just wasn't a frontman.  I'd bet that some of his substance abuse issues were to get the courage to be joe frontman.  During their heyday Robbie was the guy working the audience between songs.  Steve stepped out more after the two big albums but from his time with Streets thru till freaks of nature he was trying to be the prototypical lead singer but that just isn't in his personality.  He hit bottom with an arrest after this tour and got cleaned up.  After that they shrank back to a five piece which kept Steve behind the keys most of the set and Billy does all the stage patter.  And Steve looked more comfortable with that.

I have that cd, and I think I have that old vhs show on a bootleg dvd from one of the places I get my dvd recordings from. I saw that tour in 92 also at a midsized bar in Delaware County, PA not far from me. The night I saw them, much like in that video you posted, the band was very tight and kicked ass. Steve is a legend, he gets an A for effort and except for some cringe worthy cracking in his voice and trying unwisely to do some notes that he shouldn't have, It was still awesome to see him. His decline was noticeable though and it lasted a while and ultimately caused him to leave the band. Glad I got see to see him a handful of times.
