AMERICA ROLLS OUT INITIAL 2023 TOUR DATES

America has rolled out its initial 2023 tour dates. The band, led by co-founders Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell, kicks things off on January 12th in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania at the Luhrs Center and has shows booked through August 19th when they hit Lowell, Massachusetts’ Lowell Memorial Auditorium.

America is known for playing a high-octane hit-filled show, and Gerry Beckley told us that they’ve never underestimated the importance of America’s core fanbase: “We have the most loyal fans; I think you’ll find that across the board, no matter who you tap in to, if you go to a lot of these classic acts — I mean, we have people come 20, 30 times a year. There isn’t millions of them, but there’s enough to fill 100 shows a year. We go all over the planet.”

We asked Dewey Bunnell if after all these years working with Gerry Beckley he ever thinks of it almost like a marriage: “People say that, of course, yeah, and Gerry and I have had a few marriages that didn’t last as long, but nevertheless, we’ve worked together since we were teenagers — y’know, we really went to high school together. Then, once we got established, made the first albums, had some success, moved to California — then you set up your own lives a little. You know where the areas are in your lives that you want to keep private and you know where you can blend your work with your lives.”
