Mulvane, Kan.—Grammy Award-winning classic rock band America will perform their top hits at Kansas Star Arena on Friday, June 12, 2020.
The year 2020 marks the 50th Anniversary of when the classic rock band burst into the music scene. Founding members, Gerry Bleckley and Dewey Bunnell, met in high school in London in the late 1960s and quickly harmonized their way to the top of the carts on the strength of their signature song, “A Horse With No Name.”
America is best-known for their top hits, including "I Need You," "Ventura Highway," "Don't Cross The River," "Tin Man," "Lonely People," and "Sister Golden Hair." Throughout the band’s career, America has also released six certified gold albums, platinum albums, a greatest hits collection and sold more than four million records. In 1972, the band won a Grammy Award for Best New Artist.
