America - The Band Tickets for Sale

It is no coincidence how each of the three members of the band America met in the late 1960's. Dewey Bunnell, Dan Peek, and Gerry Beckley were sons of U.S. Air Force officers who were stationed in the U.K., and they all attended high school together. It wasn't until they finished high school in 1970 when they formed an acoustic folk-rock quartet called Daze in London, which would become the blueprint for the band America. The group landed a contract with Jeff Dexter, a promoter for the Roundhouse concert venue, right when they adopted the name America. They were soon signed to Warner Bros., and in late 1971 they released their first album, A Horse with No Name. The album became the number three hit in the U.K., and when it, was released in the U.S. it became a number one single. In the beginning of 1973, America won the Grammy award for Best New Artist of 1972 with their first single off of, their second album, " Ventura Highway". Their next album, Homecoming, was a bit more polished than their previous recordings, but it still became a top ten hit in the U.S. However, their third album in 1973, Hat Trick, failed to make it near the top ten charts.

America partnered with producer George Martin in 1974 on the album Holiday, which helped them reach the top of the charts, peaking at number three and launching the hit singles "Tin Man" and "Lonely People." T-he group released History/America's Greatest Hits that same year which would eventually sell over four million copies. In 1976, the band recorded Hideaway, which went gold but failed to keep America on the rise. You Can Do Magic," an adult contemporary pop number that featured synthesizers along with their trademark harmonies, returned America to the top ten in 1982 despite the departure of Dan Peek. The band continued to tour throughout the 90's and re-emerged in 1998 with Human Nature.
