American Openings sponsors classic rock’s America at The Fox
American Openings is happy to announce that we will be helping to commemorate the 44th anniversary of the classic-rock favorite, America, by sponsoring their performance on Tuesday, June 10, 7:30 pm at the Fox Tucson Theatre.
Founding members, Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell (along with former band mate Dan Peek) met in high school in London in the late 1960’s and quickly harmonized their way to the top of the charts on the strength of their signature song “A Horse with No Name.” In the years that followed, America became a global household name with an impressive string of hits, including “Ventura Highway,” “Sister Golden Hair,” and “You Can Do Magic.” Forty plus years later, these friends are still making great music together, touring the world and thrilling audiences with their timeless sound.
The Fox Tucson Theatre is widely regarded as “The Crown Jewel of Downtown” and has emerged not only as a cultural hub and connection with Tucson’s history, but also as an important symbol of economic development. Studies show that The Fox generates $3.4 million in direct downtown spending annually, 50% of which goes to businesses other than The Fox. Over 61,000 visitors per year come downtown for events at the theatre, 85% of whom would visit less frequently if not for The Fox.
“We are all very excited to be sponsoring the America concert at The Fox Tucson Theatre,” said Keith Regina, Vice President at American Openings. “We recognize the importance of a vibrant downtown to the well-being of our community. The Fox is an important component in the re-emergence of Downtown Tucson and American Openings is very pleased to be involved at such an exciting time.”
