||KING'S X TO PLAY FIRST GIGS SINCE JERRY GASKILL'S HEART ATTACK
16th August 2012
King's X will be returning to the road in September as direct support to Kansas for their first performances since the band's drummer Jerry Gaskill suffered a major heart attack earlier this year.
Jerry commented: "Not too long ago I was thinking I might not ever get back on a stage, now I'm ready and with the OK from all my doctors. What better way to get back than to tour with the legendary Kansas. Let's rock..."

Frontman Doug Pinick said: "I've been a huge Kansas fan since the beginning. I remember sitting on the floor with my friends listening to the just released record 'Song For America'. Fast forward years later, King's X is going on tour with them!! It is an honor to be doing shows with them. This is gonna rock!!"
Kansas guitarist Richard Williams is excited to have King's X as part of the tour: "We are really looking forward to the upcoming shows with King's X. They're a great band and a force to be reckoned with."
King's X will be touring in support their live CD/DVD 'Live Love In London'. The band also released the download 'Burning Down Boston: Live at The Channel 6.12.91' earlier this year to help offset Jerry's medical expenses.
