The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians’ Four Winds® Casinos are pleased to announce a concert by iconic multi-platinum-selling group AMERICA on Saturday, January 18, 2020 at Four Winds New Buffalo’s Silver Creek® Event Center. The concert will feature lead singers, songwriters, and guitarists Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell as they embark on their 50th Anniversary Tour. Ticket prices for the show start at $39, plus applicable fees, and can be purchased online beginning on Friday, September 13 at 11 a.m. Eastern. Hotel rooms are available on the night of the concert and can be purchased with event tickets.
Almost 50 years ago, the Grammy Award-winning band was formed by Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell and Dan Peek, who departed the band in 1977 and passed away in 2011, after meeting as sons of U.S. Air Force personnel stationed in London, where they began performing live. AMERICA released their debut album on Capitol Records in 1971, which hit number one in the United States and featured the number one Billboard pop hit “Horse With No Name.” 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.”
