America is a British-American rock band formed in England in 1970 by Dewey Bunnell, Dan Peek, and Gerry Beckley. The trio met as sons of US Air Force personnel stationed in London, where they began performing live. Achieving significant popularity in the 1970s, the trio was famous for their close vocal harmonies and light acoustic folk-rock sound. The band released a string of hit albums and singles, many of which found airplay on pop/soft rock stations. At the end of the summer of 1979, renowned Australian documentary film maker Peter Clifton travelled to New York to film the final concert of America's world tour. Chronicling the only time that America has been captured on film, Live in Central Park not only provides essential viewing of arguably one of the greatest hit song writing teams performing at their best, it also captures quintessential scenes of New York and California in the late 70s, taking you on an extraordinary journey.
