MARION — The band America, rock music’s top hit-makers of 1970s, are set to perform a live concert at the Marion Palace Theatre on Friday, Feb. 22 at 8 p.m.
America’s founding members and long-time friends; Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell are entering their 49th year of making music together, touring the world, and thrilling audiences with their timeless sound.
The duo, along with former band mate Dan Peek, met in high school in London in the late 1960s and quickly harmonized their way to the top of the charts on the strength of their signature song “A Horse with No Name.”
America became a global household name and paved the way with an impressive string of hits following the success of their first No. 11 single. Their best-known tunes, which also include “I Need You,” “Ventura Highway,” “Don’t Cross the River,” “Tin Man,” “Lonely People,” and “Sister Golden Hair,” were cornerstones of 1970s Top 40 and FM rock radio.
