AMERICA To Perform At The Theatre At Ace Hotel In Los Angeles Friday, June 21 As Part Of 50th Anniversary World Tour

Iconic multi-platinum-selling group AMERICA–lead singers, songwriters and guitarists Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell–will make a Friday, June 21 stop at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles as part of their 50th anniversary world tour. Tickets for the show are on sale now at AXS.com.

AMERICA has influenced generations of musicians with their distinctive brand of acoustic-driven, harmony-rich rock, mixed with pop smarts, in soul-searching classic songs that reflected the times they were living in.

The band’s huge radio success throughout the ’70s and early ’80s at times overshadowed the lyrical depth of their songs such as the questing “Horse With No Name” (with its environmental message at the end); the frank romantic politics of “Sister Golden Hair”; the war paranoia of “Sandman” (written in part from conversations with returning airmen from Vietnam); and the cautionary life advice of Don’t Cross The River.”

As further testament to the band’s staying power and influence,AMERICA’s recordings have been licensed for a multitude of placements in films (including American Hustle, The Nice Guys, The Last Unicorn and Girl Most Likely), television shows (among themThe Sopranos, Friends, Breaking Bad and Saturday Night Live) and video games (including Grand Theft Auto).
