America Concert Schedule

in 1970, America can easily be considered a classic folk rock group, as they are responsible for major transatlantic hits
like "A Horse with No Name", "You Can Do Magic", and "Sister Golden Hair". While this famed rock trio has now become a duo,
comprised of Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell, there is no doubt that America can still put on a rousing performance. Throughout
the decades, America has remained at the forefront of the folk rock scene, and now they are gearing up for another round of
highly anticipated shows. Whether you have been a fan of America since the '70s or have yet to discover their wildly infectious

America was originally a trio, consisting of Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell, and Dan Peek. All three had British
mothers and American fathers who were stationed at an air force base in London. They became close friends during their school
years, and all three bonded quickly over their love of music. In 1970, the trio decided to start making music together, mimicking
the acoustic trio style of Crosby, Stills and Nash. Eventually, their sound evolved and became a distinguished folk rock style,
and they quickly started amassing local fans. The trio decided on the name "America" for their group because they didn't want
people to think they were a group of British musicians trying too hard to sound like American musicians. About a year after
forming, America signed to the UK Warner Brothers label, and just like that they were well on their way to international stardom.
debut album spawned hits like "I Need You" and "A Horse with No Name", and it quickly went platinum. America found success
in both the UK and the US, making them a truly transatlantic sensation. Throughout the rest of the '70s, America just continued
to climb to the top of the folk rock scene, earning a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1972 and churning out one commercial
hit after another. For well over a decade, America enjoyed significant commercial success, although it eventually faded near
the late '80s. That didn't keep America from recording new music and performing more shows, however. Instead, they kept hitting
the studio and stayed true to their creative vision, maintaining their popularity amongst their old fans and finding new fans
wherever they perform. No matter where America steps out on stage, you can expect a large and enthusiastic crowd to pack the
