Best known for their classic hits of the ‘70s and ‘80s including ‘Ventura Highway’, ‘Horse with No Name’, ‘I Need You’, ‘Don’t Cross the River’, ‘Tin Man’, ‘Sister Golden Hair’, and ‘You Can Do Magic”, AMERICA return to New Zealand to kick start summer later this year.
Celebrating their 50th Anniversary, the iconic Classic Rock duo of Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell will perform a 3-date NZ tour. The iconic classic-rock favourite AMERICA has amassed six certified gold and/or platinum albums, with their first greatest hits collection, “History,” hitting four million plus in sales.
AMERICA - lead singers, songwriters and guitarists Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell, continues to be a band capable of transcending borders with their uplifting music and positive message. Embracing a rainbow on divergent cultures, AMERICA’s audience continues to grow, comprising a loyal legion of first, second and third generation fans, all bearing testament to the group’s enduring appeal.
The Grammy Award winners were considered cornerstones of the 1970’s Top 40 and FM rock radio and have gained 1.4 Million plus monthly listeners on Spotify, with eight songs receiving over two million streams. This includes: “A Horse with No Name” (42 Million+ streams), “Sister Golden Hair” (11 Million+ streams) and “Ventura Highway” (10 Million+ streams).
Harry Lyon enjoys a well-deserved musical legacy, with songs that have been an integral part of our collective musical history, making him the perfect proponent of the classic Kiwi rock that dominated our airwaves over the decades. All of which makes the Ex Hello Sailor, NZ Hall of Famer, and Coup D’état frontman the perfect support for America’s New Zealand dates.
Join AMERICA and Harry Lyon as they celebrate their 50th anniversary in New Zealand this November!
