America, the perennial classic-rock favorite, is celebrating their 52nd Anniversary with their powerful live performances.
Founding members, Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell (along with former band mate, the late 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 #1 single.
Forty plus years later, these friends are still making music together, touring the world and thrilling audiences with their timeless sound!
One of America’s most iconic classic rock bands, KANSAS has produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-Platinum albums, one platinum live album (Two for the Show), one quadruple-Platinum single ‘Carry On Wayward Son,’ and another triple-Platinum single ‘Dust in the Wind.’ KANSAS appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the ‘70’s and ‘80’s and has played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan.
‘Carry On Wayward Son’ continues to be one of the top five most played songs on classic rock radio, and ‘Dust In the Wind’ has been played on the radio more than three million times!
In summer of 2020 KANASAS released their sixteenth album “The Absence of Presence,” which debuted at #10 on Billboard’s Top Current Albums chart.
With no signs of slowing down, KANSAS continues to perform in front of large and enthusiastic audiences around the world.
