Kansas postpones concert in Akron because of World Series game in Cleveland


Carry on, wayward son — except for when the Cleveland Indians are in the World Series.

Classic rock band Kansas have postponed their Tuesday night concert at the Goodyear Theater in Akron, Ohio, because the show conflicts with the Indians’ hosting Game 6 of the 2016 World Series in nearby Cleveland.

Progressive Field 1, progressive rock 0.


The band made the announcement Monday afternoon via social media.

“Due to the majority of the Akron and Cleveland area’s longtime commitment to the Cleveland Indians and to Tuesday night’s historic game six of Major League Baseball’s World Series, the band Kansas, along with concert promoter The Elevation Group, are postponing tomorrow night’s scheduled concert at The Goodyear Theater in Akron, OH.

Both parties hope to be able to re-schedule the show for a future date. Refunds can be received from point of purchase.


The band Kansas wishes both teams luck in tomorrow night’s game.”

The Indians are up three games to two in the Best of 7 series against the Chicago Cubs. If the Indians win tomorrow night, they become World Series champs for the first time since 1948.

Kansas, meanwhile play Berklee Performance Center in Boston on November 26. There should be no potential conflicts brewing for that one. Get tickets here.
