America In Australia Again

More America More America

Soft rock acolytes America had a whole string of radio hits back in the 1970s that you'll still hear on any given classic hits station to this day and they were one of those bands that were so popular over here that there's no doubt you or a close relative has a beat up copy of one of their records in a cupboard somewhere, whether it gets any play these days or not. Two of the band's original members, Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell, still tour the world under the America banner and are making their return to Australian shores this September.

If you're still unfamiliar with the work of the band, seek out A Horse With No Name, Sister Golden Hair and I Need You and you'll know what the hell we're talking about. If you feel so inclined, you can head along and catch them playing the following shows. If you don't, the least you can do is notify your baby boomer relatives.
