America The Band
The Story of America concert tickets
The folk rock band America began as three kids of U.S. Air Force officers stationed in England. Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell and Dan Peek, all songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, got together in the middle 1960s. After finishing the high school, they named themselves America, honoring their country, which they sorely missed. Their first debut album, named America and released in 1971, was a modest success, but the first single ‘I Need You’ did not land as expected. However, after the album was released again with the track named ‘A Horse With No Name,’ America has made its very first hit, that had made it to the No. 1 on Billboard charts. The second album of the band titled Homecoming, in 1972, went gold, led by the absiolute hit single ‘Ventura Highway’ and that year earned a Grammy Award for America for Best New Artist. Their third album titled Hat Trick did not score that well, and included only one minor hit, the cover ‘Muskrat Love.’ But after America teamed together with legendary producer of the Beatles George Martin (and Geoff Emerick, the Beatles engineer), they hit again with their fourth album, Holiday, released in 1975, which featured two Top Ten hits, ‘Tin Man,’ and ‘Lonely People.’ Again, with the release of Hearts America of 1975 scored hits with ‘Sister Golden Hair,’ ‘Daisy Jane’ and ‘Woman Tonight.’ By the time their label, Warner Bros., has released History: America’s Greatest Hits in late 1975, the band had already established an international reputation for truly memorable, easy-to-listen-to hits and the compilation went platinum. That is what you will hear with America tickets, the greatest hits that will definitely make you smile. America has continued recording albums and performing since their huge success in 1970s, and so far has more than two dozen albums in all.
