What You'll Get
- $15 for one ticket for general admission (up to $25 value)
The independence day bash at Smith’s Ballpark offers access to live music from the band America, beer, barbecue, fireworks, and more. Seating is available in the stands or on the field.
- Where they met: in a London high school
- Why they formed: to pay tribute to the folk music of their fathers’ homeland, as two of the three members were American, not British
- When they hit the top of the international charts: 1971, with “A Horse With No Name”
- What made that song special: surreal imagery and the meditative vocals of co-frontman Dewey Bunnell, which sent Neil Young on a mission to find his long-lost twin
- Other hits that soundtracked countless road trips of the ’70s: “Ventura Highway,” “Tin Man,” and “Sister Golden Hair”
- How the trio became a duo: Dan Peek parted with the band back in 1977, and tragically passed away in 2011 before a rumored reunion could come to fruition
- How Burnell and other surviving member Gerry Beckley soldiered on: by teaming up with Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and James Iha of the Smashing Pumpkins for a new album in 2007 and another in 2011, Back Pages, which finds them covering Fountains of Wayne, Paul Simon, and, of course, Neil Young
- The latest: the 2015 album Lost & Found
- After the concert: fireworks, BQQ, and beer to celebrate the patriotic holiday
