It’s been four years since since the rock band America canceled a show in Israel when the Gaza war broke out. But now the group is finally making good on its promise to return.
America, the folky pop group that saw its biggest commercial success in the 1970s, will be performing one show on October 9 at the Caesarea Ampitheater.
Two of the three original members of the group – Dewey Bunnell and Gerry Beckley – will be arriving to entertain their fans of all ages. The band’s best known hits include “A Horse With No Name,” “Ventura Highway,” “Tin Man” and “Sister Golden Hair.”
The other original member of the band, Dan Peek, left in 1977 for a solo career as a Christian performer. He died in 2011.
Tickets for the show are already on sale and range from NIS 219-484 via eventim.co.il.
