America: Ride On Tour

Orpheum Theatre

The folk rock veterans, America, are coming to the Orpheum Theatre on 16 August 2024 with their ‘Ride On’ Tour!

The legendary band, America, that has brought you their signature folk-rock sound for over five decades with bangers such as “A Horse with No Name”, “Ventura Highway”, “Sister Golden Hair”, and “Tin Man”, will be returning to the stage this summer with their timeless hits and exceptional vocal harmonies.

It is uncontested: America is the cornerstone of 1970s Top 40 and FM Rock radio with their combination of melodic pop rock, folk jazz, slinky Latin-leaning rhythms, and impressionistic lyrical imagery. The “Ride On” Tour promises to take audiences on a memorable journey through their extensive catalogue, featuring chart-topping hits, fan favorites, and anthems for music lovers.

Pull in to the Orpheum Theatre to witness the unparalleled talent and infectious energy of America for yourself. Tickets are flying, and at the incredibly low price of $111, how else? Click that button right now to get yours!

Three generations of fans down the line, and folk rock veterans, America, keep going from strength to strength. They’ve played for sold-out crowds since the 1970s and haven’t missed a single guitar lick in 54 years. They are a top-shelf act, surreal rockers on tour.

America, the brainchild of Dewey Bunnell, Dan Peek, and Gerry Beckley, smashed into the music scene in 1971 with their self-titled album, sporting the international chart-topping hits “A Horse with No Name” and “I Need You”. They have cemented themselves as a force to be reckoned with, thanks to their ambitious artistic swath – from effects-laden rockers to oddball medleys and soul-bearing ballads. Whether you prefer the more folky, easy listening side of America, such as the acoustic guitar driven “Riverside”, the great vocal harmonies of “Tin Man”, the warm, meaningful lyrics of “Daisy Jane”, the crisp “Ventura Highway”, or the mysterious “The Border”; or the more serious side of America, such as the moody, dissonant, electric-guitar driven “Cornwall Blank”, the raw, edgy “Hollywood”, the mean, flying guitar solos of “Greenhouse”, or the haunting, melancholic “Here – you are bound to find something appealing and will be treated to outstanding music.

America’s growth as singers, songwriters, and musicians is unparalleled. They have created flawless blends of contrasting genres and mastered styles as wide open as the great American plains. Their staying power and influence are evident in the use of their music even in films, television, and games.

America's musicians are seasoned professionals with great songs that are well written, well played, and well sung. The proof is in the accolade-pudding: they were nominated for a Grammy in 1973 for Best Pop Vocal Group, won a Grammy Award for Best New Artist, were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and also received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012.

America’s performance at the historic 2,600 capacity Orpheum Theatre promises to be everything fans could want and more. The theatre sports a large proscenium stage and seating spread over 5 floors, namely the orchestral floor, the grand tier, the balcony, the gallery, and the special boxes, ensuring patrons the best theatre experience ever.
